PA Post School Outcomes Survey
Students, with an IEP, who will be graduating this year will be participating in the PA Post School Outcomes Survey in April or May. This survey is mandated by the Bureau of Special Education. Each school district participates in this survey process once every five years. Students will be interviewed by KCHS staff concerning their plans for after high school (post - secondary education, training and independent living). Other information gathered includes classes/activities that the student participated in while in high school and any accommodations that were helpful for the student to be successful in these classes/activities.
Contact information will also be gathered from the student as a follow up interview will be conducted during the spring, 2017. Data collected during this survey process will be helpful in our on - going attempt to make improvements in our special education programs. If you have any questions regarding this survey process, please contact Mrs. Doerr at 724-756-7510 extension 1319.
