The Pennsylvania Department of Education requires each district to survey exiting seniors about their intentions after high school—specifically, whether students plan to obtain additional education, secure employment, or pursue other activities. This graduate follow-up survey asked Career and Technical Education (CTE) students from the class of 2019 about their experiences after graduation. Key takeaways include:
- 258 of 986 CTE students who provided contact information on the Senior Exit Survey provided a valid response (26.1% response rate).
- 27% of all respondents said that they were not enrolled in school in the Fall of 2019.
- About 70% of students who responded that they were not enrolled in school in the Fall of 2019 were employed and most reported working between 31-40 hours.
- 32% of students who responded that they were not enrolled in school in the Fall of 2019 and were employed were working in a field related to their CTE field of study.
