The Ohio Department of Education Office of Career-Technical Education sent the following information to superintendents:
In response to House Bill 67, the Ohio Department of Higher Education and the Ohio Department of Education are providing guidance for Career-Technical Assurance Guide (CTAG) credit for junior and senior students who have the ability to use the course grade if advantageous for the student after taking the end of course assessment or if access to the course assessment is not available. The guides are available to download at the end of this article.
The Ohio Department of Higher Education, working closely with their partners at the Ohio Department of Education and other stakeholders, developed this guidance to ensure that secondary career technical education junior and senior students remain eligible for the CTAG credit.
The guidance is consistent with the philosophy that, as much as possible, students should be held harmless when their studies have been disrupted by the unprecedented actions taken to ensure the safety of Ohioans during the COVID-19 crisis. Additional information will be forthcoming regarding how this policy will fit into the Career-Technical Articulation Verification (CTAV) process. If you have additional questions or suggestions as together we strive to serve the students of Ohio, please contact:
