Career & College Ready Manual and Plan for JALSD

Career Connections is a joint initiative among the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation, Ohio Board of Regents, OhioMeansJobs and Ohio Department of Education. Career Connections provides a framework by which students develop a vision and realistic plan for their futures – during K-12 and beyond.

Learning strategies are embedded into Ohio’s New Learning Standards for English language arts, math, science and social studies. 

Now more than ever, students need to see a connection between what they are learning in the classroom and their future careers. Ohio law requires local boards of education to adopt a policy on career advising and provide a Career-Technical Education pathway program beginning in grade 7.

To help in this process the Jefferson Area Local Schools Board of Education has adopted a comprehensive policy on Career Advising. The school district has also developed a career pathways guide that provides an overview of how our district provides Career Connections in its curriculum around college and career readiness and identifying how academic skills are applied to the world of work. This is done to support students in becoming productive and engaged citizens who understand the world of work and have the skills to pursue their interests when they graduate from high school. 

Our career pathways guide is available on our web site and serves as a supplement to our course catalog in the junior and senior high schools.
