Senior Exit Survey

The Senior Exit Survey is administered each spring by the Office of Research and Evaluation (ORE), in collaboration with the Office of College and Career Readiness and the Office of Career and Technical Education.

The Pennsylvania Department of Education requires school districts to offer an exit survey to all high school 12th graders to determine whether students plan to obtain additional education, seek employment, or pursue other activities post-graduation. The survey also asks students about their high school activities (including volunteering, internships, athletics, and clubs), what supports they received in preparing for college and career, and which people in their lives helped with the process. The survey is administered online and was first launched in 2014-15.

Since 2016, ORE has also administered a customized exit survey for students in alternative schools, including the Educational Options Program and Juvenile Justice schools.
