AISD graduates completed a follow-up survey about their high school college and/or career preparation one year after graduation. This report focuses on students’ perceptions of their postsecondary preparedness and ways it could be improved.
Patterns of course credit attainment for 2009-2010 AISD high school students are discussed. Among those most likely not to be on track to graduate in 4 years were English language learners and students in special education.
This report assesses whether significant differences existed in the postsecondary enrollment or employment of 2010 AISD graduates, based on their participation in Career and Technical Education and their industry certification status.
Overall postsecondary enrollment of AISD graduates increased slowly over time until 2010. The drop in enrollment this year follows a national trend. Enrollment at 4-year colleges fell more than did enrollment at 2-year colleges.
