Districts can offer one-year Career Pathways. A one-year Career Pathway will include a minimum of 300 hours of instruction and the course must be a Completer (Capstone) course. If the student earns a letter grade of “C-“ or better in a one-year Career Pathway, the student is reported and is considered a Completer. Other Participant levels (Introductory or Level 2) are never reported in a one-year Career Pathway.
In the event of an audit, districts must be prepared to prove that the minimum required hours were met.
