As part of the revision process for the Arts and Communication and Information Technology Career Fields' Technical Content Standards, the Ohio Department of Education Office of Career-Technical Education is seeking stakeholder feedback on the current standards. The Arts and Communication and Information Technology Career Fields' Public Comment Surveys will be open from April 5 – May 20, 2023. Thank you in advance for your participation on behalf of Ohio’s students!
If you have additional questions, please contact Kris Vigneron at Kristopher.Vigneron@education.ohio.gov.
The Office of Career-Technical Education at the Ohio Department of Education schedules revisions of its Career Field Content Standards on a rotating basis. This year Arts and Communication and Information Technology career fields will be revised.
The department seeks feedback from educators, community members, and industry professionals as each career field standards are reviewed and revised. We are committed to making sure our students learn the rigorous, industry-relevant knowledge and skills they need to be successful in careers and college.
This review process will ensure that our standards are:
- Clearly written;
- Industry relevant;
- Aligned with what students learn in postsecondary programs; and
- In sync with industry credential requirements.
How will the public be involved?
The Ohio Department of Education initially is inviting feedback on the standards through a survey beginning early-April through mid-May.
What happens to your suggestions?
An advisory committee of education and industry leaders use the survey feedback to select standards for review. The committee then provides direction to working groups of subject matter experts for each area, and the working groups will return to the advisory committee with proposed revisions. Ultimately, the Department will adopt the revised standards.
