Student Services Standards
Every five years, a technology center is evaluated on the services it provides to its students. Guidance (which includes assessment and special needs services), Job Placement, and Integrated Academics are the standards the ODCTE Career and Academic Connections Division assesses in the student services area. Please click on the links below to see the instrument we use for each standard to help us evaluate and accredit technology centers.
- Standard Four: Guidance and Training Assistance
- Standard Five: Job Placement Assistance
- Standard Six: Academic Integration
Quality indicators delineate strategies and elements that are important for student success at a technology center and are used to help define and enhance student services during accreditation visits.
Rubrics - Student Services Modules
These rubrics were designed to help show what a successful student services system would look like in a technology center. Use these rubrics to benchmark your current services and to identify areas of strengths and opportunities for improvement.
- Services to Students with Disabilities and other Special Populations
- Academic Integration

Comprehensive Guidance Program
