DoDEA 2006 Postsecondary Plans and Scholarships Report
Department of Defense Education Activity
At the end of every school year, each high school in the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) is required to document the postsecondary plans and scholarships of twelfth grade students. This report provides a summary of these data, including the postsecondary plans of students and the monies offered and accepted by these students for scholarships, grants, and financial aid. Data in this report are presented for DoDEA overall, as well as disaggregated by each of the three areas: Domestic Dependents Elementary and Secondary Schools (DDESS), including Cuba; Europe; and the Pacific, including Guam. It should be noted that in SY05-06, changes were made to the procedures and system DoDEA uses to collect student data. These new data collection procedures resulted in missing and invalid data and non-standard data entry. Therefore, caution should be used when interpreting and comparing these results among Areas and against previous years. Of the 3,191 seniors in DoDEA schools in SY05-06, approximately 99% (N=3,156) were reported as graduated. This is approximately 4% higher than reported in SY04-05; however, this difference may be due to differences in the data collection procedures rather than true differences in the graduation rates between the two years. (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.) [For the previous report, "DoDEA 2005 Graduates Post-Secondary Plans and Scholarships Report," see ED529457.]
