  1. Claremore High schoolHome of the zebras! CRC – Setting a “Course” for the Future.

  2. 2008 Oklahoma Education Findings • 2007 – 2008 Statewide graduation rate = 79.8%* • (Source: Profiles 2008 State Report, Office of Accountability, April 2009) • *Number of 2007-08 graduates divided by 2003-04 9th grade ADM • 52.8% of graduates went directly to an OK college • (Source: OK State Regents for Higher Education as reported in • Profiles 2008 State Report, Office of Accountability, April 2009) • 44.1 % of the above will complete a degree program within 150% • of normal completion time - 6:4 yr degrees; 3:2 yr degrees • (Source: OK State Regents for Higher Education as reported in Profiles 2008 State Report, Office of Accountability, April 2009. “Summary of High School Performance Measures”)

  3. Doing the Math • Using these numbers, one could surmise that for each 100 Oklahoma students that began 9th grade in 2003-2004: • 80 graduated from High School in 2008 • 42 of the 80 (53%) went directly to an OK college • 18 of the 42 (44%) will complete a college program • and • 82/100 students willnot graduate from college

  4. Their World…. • Career Tech • The Military • The World of Work

  5. Two Years Ago…………. At the For Counselors Only Conference The last breakout session A concept of partnership A model of achievement

  6. Community Wide Career Planning:A new work-ready mantra • KeyTrain and WorkKeys: What’s it about? • Tech centers imbedding KeyTrain? • Tech Centers licensed to give WorkKeys test? • Entire senior classes receiving CRC’s? • Our neighbors becoming Work-Ready communities? It takes a whole community to develop careers. (Ft. Gibson, Sand Springs, and Pryor live this philosophy)

  7. The long drive back in the school van or “The Light Bulb Moment!” Why Can’t we do that? • KeyTrain already in place, but underused. • 9 week class? Electives always needed. • Students need work-ready curriculum. • Majority of students will not directly go to college . • Students prefer computer-led instruction. • Individual based skill level activities. • The rule of 15 = 182

  8. Community Career Development Support Creating a Consortium (Ft. Gibson did this and it’s working!) Rogers County Industrial Authority Higher Education - RSU Common Education - CHS Workforce Oklahoma Northeast Technology Center Common Education was the missing point – they couldn’t be a star without us!

  9. America’s Forgotten Middle-Skill Jobs • 33% High-skill occupations are those in the professional/technical and managerial categories. • 17% Low-skill occupations are those in the service and agricultural categories. • 48% Middle-skill occupations are the others, including clerical, sales, construction, installation/repair, production, and transportation/material moving. • Ample employment opportunities will remain in a variety of good-paying jobs in the middle of the labor market over the next decade and beyond. • (Source: www.skills2compete.org America’s job openings by skill level, 2006)

  10. Career Readiness Certificate I Reading for Information Applied Math Locating Information +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Guest Speakers Field Visits OKlahomaCareer Information System and much more…

  11. Class Outline • 9-week Block • 85 minute instructional period • Elective credit: .5 • OCAS Code: 2410 (Business Education; Careers/Exploration) • Monday: Reading for Information • Tuesday: OKCIS / Graduate to the Perfect Job • Wednesday: Applied Math • Thursday: Guest Speakers / Field Visits • Friday: Locating Information

  12. Career Readiness Certificate II CRC+ (Plus designation) KeyTrain Career Skills Additional KeyTrain assessment areas • Work Habits & Workplace Effectiveness • Communication Skills, Business Etiquette, and The Job Search • Listening, Observation, and Teamwork

  13. Class Outline • 9 week Block • 85 minute instructional period • Elective credit .5 • OCAS Code: 2410 (Business Education; Careers/Exploration) • Monday: Work Habits, Workplace Effectiveness • Tuesday: OKCIS / Graduate to the Perfect Job • Wednesday: Communication Skills, Business Etiquette, The Job Search □ Thursday: Guest Speakers / Field Visits □ Friday: Listening, Observation, Teamwork

  14. ACE RemediationMany “bites” of the apple! • CHS district policy requires students who fail the Eng II or Alg 1 EOI to enroll in remediation before attempting retake. • KeyTrain is meaningful remediation for reading and math – self paced, instant progess results • This course is stacked with the CRC course; 1 class, 2 OCAS codes, multiple needs met. • End result is WorkKeys benefits every student

  15. Grading Rubric 40% Progress: Measured by student’s sequential movement through each level of KT program assignments. KT has many report options. 20% Reflections: One page written reflections of information learned from guest speakers or field visits. 20% Participation: Interaction with OKCIS, creation of online portfolio, attendance at career fair. 20% Block Final: Mini-research career-related project to be completed in class on day of exam, OR completion of WorkKeys test.

  16. Community Participants • Jo Kahn – OKCIS director • Ron Mullen – Claremore Workforce Manager • Bill Shortridge – R.C. Manufacturing Agent • Staff Sargent Chris Nash – U.S. Army • TobieGatewood – Northeast Technology Center • Marty Quinn – Quinn Insurance Company • Alan Avery - Port of Catoosa • Loni Slocum - UPCO, Inc. • Jared Mathias - Pryer Machine • Bruce Parks – Parks’ Custom Cabinets • Tim Fleetwood - Love Air Conditioning • Jerry Graves – Key Construction

  27. District Wide Support • Faculty supports program to increase reading and math achievement scores. • Administration supports program that strengthens work-ready curriculum. • Foundation supports program that offers all students opportunity to earn work credential. • Business supports workforce with documented skill sets. • Parents support work-ready graduates.

  28. Building for the future Improve CRC curriculum: add Career Ready 101 Remodel our School-to-Work program Partner with businesses to build Guest Speaker series Create internship programs with businesses & CRC’s Help build CRC population with CT & OESC Review data every block for improvement; focus on increasing completions and retesting opportunities Apply for grant money to continue & expand program Offer multiple senior graduation testing opportunities Offer community (and faculty) testing opportunities Complete quest for Work-Ready community designation
