Calling All High Schools!

We need your help to improve postsecondary enrollment rates among our College Bound students. The Gates Foundation has provided WSAC funds to award to schools that are selected to participate in a survey of current College Bound seniors regarding their plans for postsecondary education and what obstacles they may perceive.  Schools that participate and reach a minimum response rate will receive a $250 Amazon gift code (senior class size less than 200) or a $500 Amazon gift code (senior class size is greater than 200). To that end, WSAC needs staff in high schools who are willing to deploy this paper survey to their College Bound seniors.

Participation Requirement

If you are selected for participation, you will be asked to give paper surveys to all CBS scholars in their senior year at your school between February 1, 2017 and March 31, 2017.  Importantly, you will need to give the surveys to ONLY your CBS scholars in their senior year.  The survey will take less than 10 minutes for each student to complete. You will then collect the surveys and send them back using a pre-paid envelope to the Washington Student Achievement Council. To receive the $250 Amazon gift code, you will need to achieve a minimum response rate of 75%. That is, 75% of your College Bound seniors will need to complete the survey by March 31, 2017.  Schools can easily access their College Bound student lists via WSAC’s online portal.

Let us know if you're interested!

To be considered for participation, please fill out a quick contact form at bit.do/CBS-survey-interest.
