Senior survey will go out in August

Parents of 2023 Graduated Students:

As part of our state requirements to ensure that students are college, workforce, and military ready there will be a survey sent you to you and/or your student via email with questions regarding the status of your graduated student. The questions will involve where your student is residing, if they are employed and the type of business if they are, if they are military, if they are enrolled in a college education or a training program for the fall, and if so what type of program, the name of the college and the length of the program.

Our goal is to collect the most accurate information possible. You will receive this survey first in August via email. Two additional attempts to reach you will be made later in the fall per state requirements. Your participation in August would be greatly appreciated. We value your feedback and assistance with this important project.

Thank you!
