Important information for those participating in the WorkReady! Certificate project (Kansas Career & Technical Education Industry-Recognized Certifications and Credentials Project), for students:
KSDE and the Department of Commerce are working together to provide you and your students the best experience for this important project. It is our recommendation that the Department of Commerce Regional Operations Managers (ROM) administer and proctor the ACT WorkKeys assessments for students to earn the Kansas WorkReady! Certificate.
It is critical that each school district and ROM mutually agree when and how the assessments are scheduled.
The timeline for this project is the following:
. January - March, 2011 - Assessment of ACT WorkKeys & Registration in KansasWorks
. April - May, 2011 - Score data to Commerce Regional Managers (ROM); Award Kansas WorkReady! Certificates
. Consider a ceremony for certificate holders to include students, parents, HS teacher/administrators, community leaders, local Chamber representatives
