Interest in High Schools on the Rise:
High Schools from all around the state are taking interest in WorkKeys and the NCRC. WorkKeys satisfies the essential skills requirements for HS graduation at the Gold (5) level in Reading and Math! Students who were not able to pass the OAKS test in order to graduate are now graduating after obtaining a Gold level 5 in the math and reading Workkeys assessment! This has been true of over 100 students at ECCO! This new trend is becoming a reality for many students across the state! In addition, students are taking the WorkKeys assessment in Locating Information and earning their NCRC just in time for summer jobs! This is a WIN/WIN for students, educators, parents, employers and the community!
