Career Clusters & Programs of Study

Career Clusters

Ohio has adopted the National 16 Career Clusters Model and is implementing all 16 Career Clusters.

Ohio has adopted state administrative rules that support Career Clusters and has integrated them into the state plan. Several strategies are currently supporting these policies. All technical content standards reflect a Career Cluster framework which includes both breadth and depth.

Each Career Cluster technical content standards document includes embedded academic content standards and an emphasis on core business processes/systems as well as technical competencies appropriate to Cluster pathways and occupational specializations.
Ohio is supporting the enactment of Career Cluster curriculum with the following resources: curriculum models (e.g., a model course of study or scope and sequence), inquiry-based projects as a framework for instruction and teacher institutes to prepare teachers to teach core business processes, integrating academic and technical standards and using inquiry-based teaching strategies. Ohio also requires accountability information to be collected by Career Clusters.
Ohio names their Career Clusters differently:

• Agricultural and Environmental Systems
• Arts and Communications
• Business and Administrative Services
• Construction Technologies
• Education and Training
• Engineering and Science Technologies
• Finance
• Government and Public Administration
• Health Science
• Hospitality and Tourism
• Human Services
• Information Technology
• Law and Public Safety
• Manufacturing Technologies
• Marketing
• Transportation Systems

The data in the above chart was taken from the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act Reports to Congress on State Performance (see below). The Consolidated Annual Report, or CAR, is a mandatory fiscal and accountability report submitted by each state to the U.S. Department of Education. It provides performance information on Perkins indicators. A red X means a state did not meet its adjusted level of performance and a green checkmark means that the state did meet its goal. A blue bar in the Secondary Indicators table means that the state does not offer students the opportunity to earn both a high school diploma and other credential (e.g., a skill certificate) or that the data was not otherwise provided by the state. A blue bar in the Postsecondary Indicators table indicates that the state did not provide data. CAR narratives for individual states are hyperlinked below.

Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act Reports to Congress on State Performance State profiles for each of the core indicators (academic attainment, attainment of diplomas or degrees, placement and retention in further education or employment, and participation and completion of non-traditional training programs) for secondary and postsecondary programs. Also included are federal allocations, enrollment by gender, and a brief description of program improvement and data quality efforts for each state.
