Career Education Credit

Graduation is dependent upon three areas: Courses, State Testing and Career Development.

The State of Oregon requires all students to earn 0.5 credits of career education in order to graduate. Students at Beaverton earn 0.125 career education credits each year through the College and Career Readiness Program.   Career education activities happen in the community, in classes, and in Beaver Lodge.  Each student’s progress towards earning 0.5 career education credit is housed in their Career Information System (CIS) electronic portfolio.  Progress towards completing these activities is also reported on the 2nd semester report cards.
