Career and Postsecondary Readiness

Whether training in a technical field or preparing for work or college, the Career and Postsecondary Readiness Component (previously known as the Prepared for Success component) looks at how well prepared Ohio’s students are for future opportunities. Preparation comes in many forms, and the report card takes this into account with two options that count toward the Career and Postsecondary Readiness Component. 

How is the grade determined?

Students have two options to earn full credit on this measure, which is 1 point, along with opportunities to earn bonus points. 

Under Option 1, students may earn one of the Career and Postsecondary Readiness elements for full credit, plus the option for bonus points from a list of work-based and service-learning experiences. 

Earning full credit plus the opportunity for bonus points under Option 2 can happen when students earn a combination of Emerging Readiness elements, such as advanced coursework and work-based service-learning opportunities. 

Why is this important?

  • Graduation is not enough. Students must be prepared for further education or work after high school.
  • Whether training in a technical field or preparing for work or college, these indicators measure preparedness.

Questions to ask

  • Are those moving on to college able to do college-level work immediately?
  • How do we inform parents and encourage students to get involved in these opportunities
  • How prepared are our students to get good jobs at area businesses?
