Post-Secondary Education and EmploymentIndicator 14 Post-School Results
One year after students leave high school, they may be contacted by someone who represents the Texas Education Agency. They will ask questions about what the student has been doing since graduation from high school. Following are definitions for some of the terms that may be used in these questions.
- Enrolled in higher education means that the student has been enrolled on a full-time or part-time basis in a community college (2-year program) or college/university (4- or more year program) for at least one complete term, at any time in the year since leaving high school.
- Competitive employment means that the student has worked for pay at or above the minimum wage in a setting with others who are nondisabled for a period of 20 hours a week for at least 90 days at any time in the year since leaving high school. This includes military employment.
- Enrolled in other postsecondary education or training means that the student has been enrolled on a full-time or part-time basis for at least 1 complete term at any time in the year since leaving high school in an education or training program (e.g., Job Corps, adult education, workforce development program, vocational technical school which is less than a 2-year program).
- Some other employment means that the student has worked for pay or been self-employed for a period of at least 90 days at any time in the year since leaving high school. This includes working in a family business (e.g., farm, store, fishing, ranching, catering services, etc.).
