Please complete this survey to create more ways for Ohio students to get high-quality training and skills.

The Ohio Department of Education believes every young person deserves a pathway to economic success. That is why we are pursuing a grant from the Council of Chief State School Officers, the National Association of State Directors of Career Technical Education Consortium and JP Morgan Chase. The three-year grant would allow our state to expand and improve career-focused education that prepares students for high-skill and high-wage jobs.

To prepare for the grant application, the department is conducting a survey to gather information from citizens throughout Ohio, including educators, parents, students, businesses and community organizations. We want to learn about the quality of and access to career preparation resources currently available in schools. This includes next steps needed for building programs, courses or other experiences that support career-ready students.

The department will use the information from the survey to create the grant proposal on how Ohio will increase pathways for students to get the training and skills they need to compete for jobs.

Here is the New Skills for Youth survey. We encourage you to participate in the survey and to share it with your family, friends and community. Thank you for helping us in this effort.
