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 future opportunities.
How is the grade determined?
A district earns 1 point for every student who earns any of the following:
- ACT or SAT remediation-free scores.
- An Honors Diploma; or
- Twelve points through an industry-recognized credential or group of credentials in one of 13 high-demand career fields.
For every student who earns 1 point plus one of the following, a district earns 0.3 additional points:
- Advanced Placement tests – Scores 3 points or more on at least one test;
- International Baccalaureate tests – Scores 4 points or more on at least one test; or
- College Credit Plus – Earns at least 3 credits.
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.
