Career Readiness Indicators (CRI) are credentials/certifications made available to all students enrolled in a program where career and technical skill proficiencies are aligned with industry-recognized standards. The credential provides proof that the student possesses the minimum skills required for entry-level employment. CRIs may be recorded on the student’s high school transcript.

“Thank you so much for the efforts that you and so many others have put into Wiregrass Works this year. It is one of the best events that I’ve ever attended with my middle school students. I thought it was great last year and even better this time around! There is no doubt that an event like this takes considerable planning and coordination and I want everyone to know that it is most appreciated.

It is my hope that Wiregrass Works will continue to exist and grow.”
