Future Work Environment for Graduates

Respondents were asked about the future work environment for graduates. They were asked:
When thinking about the future work environment that graduates will face, do you think the environment will be more challenging or easier? (Scale: – 5 = Much more challenging; 0 = About the same; +5 = Much easier)

Key things to note:

  • The majority of survey respondents (65%) think that the future work environment for graduates will be more challenging. Only 19% think it will remain the same and 15% think it will become easier.
  • The implications of a more challenging work environment in the future point to the need for the Smithville School District to consistently enhance its programming and educational services for students to match the changing needs of the work environment.
