Senior Exit Plans Survey. State Summary Report. Class of 2007
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 2007. The SEPS was distributed to regular public high schools and to charter schools that expressed an interest in participating. 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 10,264 seniors (and graduating juniors) were enrolled at the time of the survey. Of these students, 93% (9,536) returned the survey form. 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 60 seniors enrolled at the time of the survey. Fifty-eight students returned the survey form for a return rate of 97%. To find out about their post-secondary school plans, high school completers were asked what will they most likely be doing in the first year after high school: do they plan to go to school, work, or join the military, or do they have multiple plans, for example, attend school and join the military? More than eighty percent of students included school in their post-secondary plans, and the majority indicated they planned to attend school and work. Less than ten percent indicated multiple plans that would include school, work, and the military. The survey instrument is appended. (Contains 17 tables.) [For 2006 report, see ED500747.]
