Stark's Career Technical Report Cards Paint a Picture of High Performing Programs
The 2014-15 Ohio School Report Cards
for Stark County's Career Technical Planning Districts (CTPD) were released late in February. The picture is one of high performing programs graduating nearly all students on time. Further, nearly all students participate in dual enrollment, either earning college credit while in high school or upon enrolling in college.
Nearly all of Stark's six CTPDs - which provide career technical programs (formerly vocational education) for every local school district - met each of the eight critical federal Perkins Accountability Standards. Those standards are: 1) academic attainment reading; 2) academic attainment math; 3) technical skill attainment; 4) secondary school completion; 5) single year graduation rate; 6) post program placement; 7) nontraditional participation; and 8) nontraditional completion.
 Employed, in military, apprenticeship, post secondary education or advanced training
 Graduation rates for the other Ohio Urban 8 were Akron 88.4%, Cleveland 79.3%, Cincinnati 93.2%, Dayton 90.2%, Columbus 81.9%, Toledo 88.6%, Youngstown 72.4%
