Industry Based Certifications
House Bill 22 (85th Texas Legislature, 2017) requires the state to account for high school students who earn an industry-based certification as one indicator within the Student Achievement domain of the state’s public-school accountability system. Industry-based certifications represent skills and learning that open doors and act as a springboard for higher levels of achievement to ensure students’ independence and success in life beyond high school; hence industry-based certifications are one of the measures to demonstrate college and career readiness.
