ESSA Metrics

ESSA School Quality and Student Success Indicators

Arizona’s College and Career Readiness indicator is weighted at 20 percent of the overall high school score. Under the plan, schools receive points for students who complete a CTE sequence, earn industry-recognized credentials and complete at least 120 hours of work-based learning, among other activities. Schools are eligible to earn bonus points for students completing both college and career readiness activities.
