Ohio legislation requires the Ohio Department of Education to conduct a review of all Career-Based Intervention (CBI) programs in FY2015. The reviews are an accountability measure to assure that students in these programs have optimum opportunities for success.
On-site reviews of more than 300 Ohio Career-Based Intervention programs will occur from Sept. 15 through Dec. 15, 2014. Each review covers applicable indicators in the Quality Program Standards.
Office of Career-Technical Education staff will be contacting CTPD Secondary Directors to set up appointments. We seek your leadership support to assure that reviews occur in an effective and efficient manner. If local Career-Based Intervention staff have supporting documents ready, each review should take approximately two hours.
