Starting with the class of 2024, Ohio students are required to create and maintain a graduation plan that takes into account the various pathways towards graduation. While this requirement is Ohio specific, it does highlight the flexibility Abre carries when supporting state legislative priorities. You can do a lot with Abre. As a connective education platform, it naturally lends itself to school and district frameworks.
For this particular recipe, we’re going to demonstrate how schools can use Abre for their student graduation plans.
If you’re curious about the details of Ohio’s graduation plan requirements, you can visit the Department of Education’s Website. In general, the plan and framework should:
- Be developed WITH the student and the school;
- Contain the pathway and requirements for graduation;
- Document progress (or lack of progress) towards meeting those requirements;
- Contain criteria and procedures for identifying at-risk students, provide those students with supports;
- Contain career advisements;
- Include notifications and communications with parents and students.
Ideally, you want this framework to be efficient, simple, and transparent to achieve its objective of helping students graduate. Abre can help.
The Full Framework
Step 1: Create a Graduation Plan
With Abre, you can create and customize any education plan for students. You want to consider what type of fields you want to be included in a Graduation Plan. For example, you may want fields like:
- Graduation pathway
- Transcript fields (credits awarded)
- Criteria fields that let everyone know if the student is on track or at risk (for example, state assessment scores, MAP data, or ACT scores)
- Career Inventory
Schools can customize and determine what information best supports their graduation plan and build accordingly. To do this, you:
- Open Forms and create a new form;
- Drag,drop and customize the form fields fields;
- Apply the form to “Students” and mark the form a Plan
