Post School Survey Extract



The Post School Survey extract is used to report postgraduate information for students who graduated during the previous school year. The extract is generated in a comma-delimited format.

Note: In order for the Post School Survey Extract to function as expected, the appropriate Years & Terms must be set up in the Graduated Students school. Before running the report, switch to the Graduated Students school, navigate to Start Page > School Setup > Years & Terms and verify that there is at least a year term set up for the previous school year.

Selection Criteria

Selection criteria determine which database records are used in the report.

Student Selection

The Post School Survey extract includes student records from the [Students] table that meet the following criteria:

  • Students with a school enrollment associated to a school included in the report.
  • Students who were enrolled in the Career Education Concentrator special program:
  • The Program Info Code for the student’s special program enrollment must be Career Education Concentrator (CE0003) or Career Education Concentrator with Postsecondary (CE0004).
