Andrews, Suzanne; Gahris, Cynthia; Reeder, Marcia; Tizzano, Anthony
This document, which is intended for parents of Ohio students in grade 11, explains the purpose and content of the Career Passport and provides activities through which parents can help their adolescents make a successful transition to life after high school. The document begins with an overview of the Career Passport, which is a five-part document designed to serve as a hands-on summary of Ohio high school students' educational experiences and career goals and reflects the career thinking that they have done since kindergarten. Presented next are a series of activities designed to enable parents to help their teens accomplish the following tasks: make full use of the Career Passport; develop a resume; make the changes needed to earn a transcript containing good grades, good attendance, and the courses employers want; write a thoughtful career narrative; develop critical employability skills; and learn to plan for change. Concluding the document is a calendar that lists things parents can do in each of the months of their teen's 11th grade year to add depth and quality to his or her Career Passport and use it as a means to keep his or her career dreams in focus.
