Results from a survey of Palo Alto high school graduates will be among the topics of discussion by the Palo Alto Board of Education Tuesday, Nov. 13.
About 29 percent of the 773 graduates of the Gunn and Palo Alto high school Class of 2011 responded to a district questionnaire.
Students were asked whether they felt "connected" to their high school experience and how well it prepared them for college.
Results will be presented in conjunction with data on four-year college prep and college-going rates of the Paly and Gunn classes of 2012.
In other business Tuesday, the board will be asked to adopt a "planning timeline" for deciding by next May on the location of a 13th elementary school.
The board also will bid farewell to member Barbara Klausner, who will sit behind the dais for the last time Tuesday. First elected in 2007, Klausner decided not to seek re-election and will be replaced at the next board meeting Dec. 4 by newcomer Heidi Emberling, who was elected last week.
Incumbents Melissa Baten Caswell and Camille Townsend also were re-elected.
Tuesday's schedule includes a 6 p.m. public reception honoring Klausner in the board room of school district headquarters, 25 Churchill Ave.
The regular meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in the same room.
Earlier in the day, at 1 p.m., middle school principals will present their "plans for student achievement" to the board in a public meeting, also scheduled for the boardroom.
