Prepared for Success Component for Career Tech Schools

This measure answers the question – Are students who graduate from your school ready for college or careers? There are many ways to show that graduates are prepared. 

What is being reported?

This information is only reported on the 2015 report card. 

The measures are:

  • Dual Enrollment (percent earning at least three college credits)
  • Honors Diplomas Awarded (percent of students with Honors Diplomas) 
  • Advanced Placement (participation rate) 
  • International Baccalaureate Program (participation rate)

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 for all educational tracks. 
  • All districts must provide and promote ways for high schools to provide college credit. 

Questions to ask

  • Which elements measured in Prepared for Success are our schools providing? 
  • Why are we not offering other elements?
  • 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 in area businesses?
