Skill Map

Skill Map is a career-focused feature for our students.  It is designed to help define your career next steps and point to appropriate courses to acquire those needed skills. In the near future, students can see localized job demand, companies that are hiring, average salary numbers and understand the exact skills they need for the career they want. Students will also be able to create a profile to add skills, experience, education, and favorite careers and locations.

Per Texas CTE (powered by TEA)...

Texas Education Agency (TEA) 2019-2020 Approved Industry-Based Certifications for Public School Accountability.  The new list of industry-based certifications is scheduled to go into effect for the 2019-2020 school-year and will apply to school accountability ratings in August 2021.

Industry-Based Certifications are valuable in multiple career clusters. An example of this is the Autodesk AutoCAD certification which aligns with several careers. If the certification is earned, a district should report the certification regardless of the primary cluster identified on the list.
