Prepared for Success Component for Career Tech Schools

Whether training in a technical field or preparing for work or college, the Prepared for Success component looks at how well prepared Ohio’s students are for all future opportunities.

How is the grade determined?

  • College entrance exam remediation-free scores.
  • Honors Diploma.

Why is this important?

  • Whether training in a technical field or preparing for work or college, these indicators measure preparedness for all educational tracks.
  • All districts must provide and promote ways for high schools to provide college credit.
