West Sioux High School’s newest alumni may be hearing from their old school soon.
“We’ve talked in the past about, ‘how do we know if we’re doing a good job?
“One of the best indicators is what happens to our kids after they graduate. Lifetrack would send out three surveys to graduates. I’ve dealt with this program before. They would send out a survey just after graduation, then one in 18 months and another in five years. It would cost less than $500 and would be better than having staff spend their time on it. We could find out if the graduates have gotten a job or are in college. Now it’s done by social media. In the old days they would get a phone number, call the parents. This is long-term,” said West Sioux Shared Superintendent Randy Collins at the June 20 West Sioux School Board meeting.
School board members seemed to support the idea.
