CASE Rubric for Elementary School 21st Century Workforce Development

  • The criteria for 21st century workforce development programs were developed with the help of Shawn Blessing (Director of Career and Technical Education) and Stephanie Cook (Director of Guidance, Counseling, and College Readiness).  Information concerning 21st century workforce programs at the elementary level was collected via a survey distributed using Survey Monkey.  The survey was sent to the principals at each campus and asked questions related to the criteria developed.  Certain information concerning 21st century workforce programs for middle and high schools (e.g. career fairs, college field trips, etc.) was collected via Survey Monkey.  The survey was sent to the campus’ principals for completion.  Information on CTE programming and internship participation was provided by Shawn Blessing, and information on 2015 AP testing was provided by College Board.  Specific criteria for each rating can be seen in the tables below. When converting ratings for the CASE system, a score of Exemplary was converted to an A, a score of Recognized was converted to a B, and an acceptable score was converted to a C.  Should overall scores fall below a C grade, they were rated on a case by case basis to determine grade (e.g., either a D or an F).
