General Information


For districts wishing to include the completion of a career pathway as part of the graduation requirements for certain students, districts will find that many career pathway courses also need to have their credit included in other subject areas. This makes it difficult to create a Career Pathways Subject Area.


To solve this problem, Aeries now includes a simple Career Pathway Graduation Option for Career Pathway Completion.  This can be flagged on specific Graduation Tracks.  When enabled and applied to students, the system will look to the Career Pathways (CPW) table to determine if a pathway has been completed.  It will not use subject area requirements or credit evaluations.


When the new option has been turned on for a specific Graduation Track, a Career Pathways Status will display on the Graduation Status page.




The Career Pathways Status will also print on the Graduation Status report and the Transcript.





Security


Users who will be enabling the Career Pathways Requirement option, will need Update permissions to the Update Graduation Requirements Table in Security.





Graduation Requirements


The new option will display on the Graduation Requirements page. Access the Graduation Requirements page from the Secondary Grades Dashboard, under A. Setup/Config.

The student's Graduation Track can be changed on the Graduation Status page under Student Data | Grades node on the navigation tree.


For more information on Graduation Tracks, please refer to the following Transcript and Course History document: Graduation Requirements


If multiple Graduation Tracks are configured, a dropdown will be available on the Graduation Status page for the student.




Career Pathways


When the Career Pathways Requirement option is enabled for a specific Graduation Track, the system will look to the student's Graduation Track (STU.GRT) and the Career Pathways (CPW) table to determine if a pathway has been completed. It will not use subject area requirements or credit evaluations.

If the Completed option is checked (CPW.CM), the student will display as Career Pathway Requirement Met on the Graduation Status page.




If the student does not have a Career Pathways record flagged as Completed, the student will display as Career Pathway Requirement Not Met on the Graduation Status page.
