The Career Standard Indicator identifies the percentage of students demonstrating meaningful engagement in career exploration and preparation aligned to the Career Education and Work (CEW) standards. During the first year of implementation, school entities will be expected to demonstrate that students who are identified as meeting criteria have at least two pieces of evidence that year. In future years, the number of pieces of evidence increases in each grade within the bands.
The PA Workforce Student Group Breakdown is not available at this time. The Postsecondary Transition to Work measure relies on Pennsylvania government data sources, and therefore will not reflect employment outside the commonwealth, self-employment, or employment in certain family-owned businesses. Accordingly, the measure should be used as a starting point for local discussions and further analysis around career readiness and workforce participation.
