community/city colleges, and vocational schools. The presentations will be
focused upon developing the students interest in post-secondary educational
options, and their understanding of the steps to take to get there.

learned about the presenting institution and hand this in to their classroom
teacher.
4. Information given by these institutions will be provided to parents/guardians in
the STA newsletter and on the STA Facebook page.

Process Data will be measured by noting the attendance records, and by utilizing the exit slip
activities from each session.

Perception Data will be measured by utilizing survey data and exit slips.

Outcome Data will be measured utilizing long-term records gathered by STA and area high-
schools.

education sessions.

Perception Data:
At least 80% of STA teachers will indicate that students understand what it will take for them to
attend college, and at least 80% of attending students will indicate an understanding of each
post-secondary option.

Outcome Data:
There will be at least a 5% increase in STA students pursuing post-secondary education.

Follow Up: Teachers will continue to discuss post-secondary goals with students periodically
throughout the school year.
