Student Evidence - CEW

To help ensure that all students are on track for meaningful postsecondary engagement and success, the Pennsylvania Department of Education has included a measure of students' career exploration, preparation, and readiness as part of Pennsylvania's state and federal accountability system through the Future Ready PA Index and under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).                

Every student is required to provide examples of engagement at 5th,8th, and 11th grade.   The student evidence (artifacts)  are to be prepared between 3rd and 11th grade.   

Some of the information on this site comes from the Department of Education  )

Junior Achievement, in working with local school districts, has developed a series of templates for student evidence (artifact)  from Kindergarten thru 11th grade tied to students participating in JA programs.  

The following Documents are available for specific JA Activities.    The State Standard numbers are associated.
