WVCCRS have been developed with the goal of preparing students for a wide range of high-quality postsecondary opportunities. Specifically, college- and career-readiness refers to the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to be successful in higher education and/or training that lead to gainful employment. The WVCCRS establish a set of knowledge and skills that all individuals need to transition into higher education or the workplace, as both realms share many expectations. All students throughout their educational experience, should develop a full understanding of the career opportunities available, the education necessary to be successful in their chosen pathway, and a plan to attain their goals.
WVCCRS for the Arts promote proficiency in performing a range of material or creating two or three dimensional artworks, analyzing and processing feedback, the application of verbal and non-verbal communication, and integrity in responsible collaboration with peers. Students will develop problem solving and critical thinking skills independently and collaboratively as they engage in the common domains of the arts – create, connect, explore, perform, relate, respond, and others germane to specific arts disciplines. College-and career-readiness is supported in the arts as students acquire and further develop abilities to become creators, consumers and advocates of the arts.
