Senior Exit Plans Survey. State Summary Report. Class of 2004.
State of Hawaii Department of Education
This report presents statewide, complex area, and individual school summaries of students? post-secondary plans for the year following their completion of high school. The Senior Exit Plans Survey (SEPS) Coordinator at each school, usually a school counselor, was responsible for distributing, collecting, checking, and returning the completed surveys to the Evaluation Section for scanning and tabulation. The SEPS Coordinator was also responsible for reporting the number of seniors and graduating juniors enrolled at the time the survey was administered. School personnel, primarily teachers and counselors, administered the survey to all seniors and graduating juniors between April and June 2004. This year, a few public charter schools expressed an interest in participating. Those public charter schools who completed and returned the enrollment information request form were given surveys to distribute to their students. The survey instrument is included in Appendix A. At regular public schools, SEPS coordinators were asked to complete a Senior Exit Plan Survey response form that indicated the number of seniors enrolled. Graduating juniors were included in the senior enrollment total. A reported 11,278 seniors (and graduating juniors) were enrolled at the time of the survey. Of these students, 9581 returned the survey form for a return rate of 85%. At public charter schools, the director was most often the person who completed the Senior Exit Plan Survey form. The participating public charter schools reported 24 seniors enrolled at the time of the survey. All students returned the survey form for a return rate of 100%. Table 1.1 summarizes the response rates for the state, complex areas and individual schools. The table also provides the response rates by regular public and public charter schools.
