Earning the Technology Seal

  • Each Child, Our Future, Ohio’s strategic plan for education, calls for a student-centered system that addresses the needs of an increasingly diverse student population and prepares students for a rapidly changing economy. Specifically, the plan seeks to promote the importance of students acquiring essential knowledge and skills in a wide range of academic content areas, including the effective use and understanding of technology.

    State law created a state system of 12 diploma seals for students to demonstrate academic, technical and professional readiness for careers, college, the military or self-sustaining professions. Each seal allows students to demonstrate knowledge and skills essential for future success in their chosen post-high school paths.

    Students must earn two seals to qualify for a high school diploma. Students who earn Ohio’s Technology Seal will understand the global impact of technology and use it to design solutions and communicate ideas. Students will earn the Technology Seal by demonstrating knowledge and skills on Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate courses and tests, through College Credit Plus coursework or by completing a qualifying technology course.
