2022 CTE Report Card
It’s no secret that Parma City School District has high-quality educational opportunities and top-notch programs to help every student achieve their academic and career goals.
PCSD’s Career and Technical Education programs continue to excel in preparing students for success and received high marks on the Ohio Department of Education State Report Card in 2022.
In Technical Skill Attainment, 84.4% of 2022 graduates in CTE programs passed their certification and web exams. These assessments measure the skills and knowledge students learned in their career tech program.
Post Program Placement measures students from career tech programs who are employed, in an apprenticeship, joined the military or enrolled in post-secondary education six months after leaving high school. 94.4% of the Class of 2021 CTE graduates fall into one of these categories.
CTE received a 92.1% four-year graduation rate and a 96.5% five-year graduation rate.
For Career and Post-Secondary Readiness, which measures how well career tech students are prepared for higher education or career after graduation, CTE received a perfect score of 100%!
“I am really proud of our results this year,” expressed Kristen Plageman, PCSD’s Director of Strategic Initiatives, which includes Career and Technical Education. "I am especially proud of our 100% in Career and Post-Secondary Readiness, which shows that the Parma City School District does an excellent job preparing our students for success after graduation."
“Even with the challenges in the last few school years with the pandemic, we were still able to provide every CTE student with a chance to earn certifications,” she added. “Technical Skill Attainment is something I always look at. We always set the bar high and our students and teachers exceeded expectations. We have very dedicated teachers and the students were very determined to succeed.”
