FCS Professional Development Survey
Throughout this next school year and summer 2020, ODE will host Professional Development Sessions for Family and Consumer Science Educators. Please take the short six-question survey and share with other FCS teachers you may know. The purpose of this survey is to solicit feedback from FCS teachers on what content areas you would like covered during Professional Development sessions.

We want to make the day a meaningful way to get contact hours as well as help assist you in the classroom. Also, use the opportunity to connect with other FCS teachers. Dates for the Professional Development Sessions will be coming soon.

Reminder: Personal Finance CTAG for Family and Consumer Sciences
In February this year, Ohio Department of Higher Education added new Career-Technical Assurance Guide (CTAG) that facilitates transfer within Ohio’s Public Colleges and Universities, as well as, Public Secondary Career-Technical Education programs in Personal Finance

Process for Students to Earn Credit: The following steps must occur for secondary students to access college credit for this course: 
  1. Secondary institutions must submit their course information through CEMS for the ODE course taught at the institution, and according to the submission requirements for CTPF001- Personal Finance.
  2. The Certificate of Affirmation is here: https://www.ohiohighered.org/transfer/ct2/affirmation. The Affirmation document, signed by a district administrator, affirms that faculty teaching the course recognize that the course provides an opportunity for articulated credit and assures adherence to the SCTAI alignment document as part of the course delivery. 
  3. Students must pass the corresponding End-of-Course (WebXamtm) examination with a qualifying score of 55 or higher.
  4. Students must work with their secondary institution to ensure that their official high school transcript, official WebXamtm score, and the (CT)2 Verification Form, available at the ODHE website https://www.ohiohighered.org/node/5076, are submitted to the post-secondary institution where the student chooses to enroll. The post-secondary institution must also be a part of the statewide agreement or offer the career-technical discipline in which to facilitate credit transfer.
