College and Career Readiness Resources
Effective 2018-19 and beyond, there are career plan and portfolio requirements.
- Grade 5 Benchmark — 6 pieces of evidence between grades K-5
- Grade 8 Benchmark — 6 pieces of evidence between grades 6-8, including individualized career plan
- Grade 11 Benchmark — 8 pieces of evidence between grades 9-11, including 2 pieces of evidence that demonstrate career plan implementation
The "minimum two per year" language is included as a guideline for districts to make decisions in the cases of extended absenteeism, transfer, external placement, home or online education, or other enrollment issues. An LEA providing instruction to a student is responsible for collecting two pieces of evidence for each full or mostly full year the student receives instruction, and one piece of evidence for any partial year of instruction.
Enrollment prior to January 1st constitutes full year enrollment; enrollment after January 1st constitutes partial year enrollment. If artifacts follow a transfer student to a receiving district, they should be included in the student's portfolio, but students should not complete assignments from earlier grade bands.
