EMPLOYER GUIDE

 

  School Counts! In the Oil Region

 
              


Young people need to know that there is a correlation between working hard in school and
finding a job-whether that job is in a Fortune 500 company or in the stockroom of a local retail
store.  They need to know that attendance, punctuality, attitude and effort count, and that
nothing succeeds like hard work.  The school districts in the Oil Region will soon be offering
students the opportunity to earn a School Counts! in the Oil Region certificate which will
demonstrate these qualities.  Employers can reinforce these messages by asking young adult
job applicants for the School Counts! in the Oil Region certificates. School Counts! in the
Oil Region
will help students understand that school performance is important and will help
develop a more highly qualified workforce. 

 
 

 

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

 
 
  • Sign up to be a School Counts! in the Oil Region employer using the attached form.
  • Use the School Counts! in the Oil Region certificate as one of the criteria used to
    evaluate high school job applicants by simply asking to see a student’s certificate.
  •  Encourage other companies to participate in and support School Counts! in the Oil
    Region.
  • Allow your company to be identified in our participating businesses list.
  • Volunteer to visit schools to talk about your needs as an employer. 
 
 


THE PROCESS

 
 

School Counts! in the Oil Region is a school-based initiative that encourages employers to
use high school performance as one of the criteria used to evaluate high school job applicants. 
Participating employers will ask for the School Counts! in the Oil Region credential during
an interview.  Students can earn a School Counts! in the Oil Region certificate annually in
grades 9 through 12 and a master certificate if they participate in the program for all four
years.  The School Counts! in the Oil Region credential certifies that an individual has: 
obtained a grade of ‘C’ or better in every course, achieved a 95% attendance and punctuality
record, completed high school in eight consecutive semesters (to be eligible for the master
certificate), taken more than the minimum graduation requirements, demonstrated positive
behavior including no school suspensions and have passed a random drug test.
