College and Career Readiness
The Ohio Department of Education defines college and career readiness (CCR) as
- meeting the current needs and anticipating the future workforce demands of the economy;
- preparing learners to succeed in lifelong learning and careers through secondary-postsecondary programs of study that include high-level academic and technical skills in real-work contexts;
- supporting career development for all learners, career pathways for high school students and workforce development and literacy for adults; and
- complying with the federal Carl D. Perkins IV Act, which provides funding for an Ohio Career and Technical Education plan that sets direction for leading, working and experiencing the changing realities of education, policy development, resource management and society.
In order to graduate from high school, students must meet certain requirements which include earning a minimum number of high school course credits and completing the requirements for one of Ohio's graduation pathways.
All Green Local Schools students take the ACT in the spring of their junior year. This administration of the ACT is given free of charge and is administered during the school day.
Free practice tests are also available.
