DoDEA Seniors' Postsecondary Plans and Scholarships, 2008
Department of Defense Education Activity
This report summarizes the postsecondary plans and scholarship monies of graduates of Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) high school seniors in SY07-08. Postsecondary plans represent the intentions of seniors the year after graduation. Students indicate whether they plan to attend a 4-year college/university, junior/community college, or vocational/technical school; seek employment or an apprenticeship/on the job training; enlist in the military; join Job Corps; or have other postsecondary plans. Students also report the scholarship monies they have been offered as well as indicate which of those scholarships offered, they have or are planning to accept. It should be noted that both postsecondary plans and scholarship monies are self-reported by students. As such they may not represent the actual postsecondary status of DoDEA seniors or the totality of scholarship monies offered and accepted by students. In addition, all analyses in this report are based on those students (N=3,035) who were seniors enrolled in a DoDEA high school in April 2008. Therefore, the data in this report do not include seniors who may have withdrawn prior to or entered after April. Of the 3,035 seniors enrolled in April 2008, 77 students did not graduate, resulting in a graduation rate of 97.5%. This represents a decline from that reported in previous years, although it is most likely due to more accurate tracking and reporting of students as opposed to an actual decrease in the percentage of seniors graduating. (Contains 7 tables and 5 figures.) [For the previous report, "DoDEA 2007 Postsecondary Plans and Scholarships Report," see ED529454.]
