Please use the following sample questions when interviewing graduates of your district and/or come up with questions of your own. It is recommended that answers to each question be kept brief (150 words or less) so that these interviews may print to a single page. As an alternative, or in addition to written format, interviews could also be produced as a video or podcast. Consider the means you have at your disposal - the technology, time, resources and people - when planning your interviews. Think about the format that may be most impactful to the members of your community.
