High school students should know that there is a correlation between working hard in school and finding a job.
They need to know that attendance, punctuality, attitude, and effort count and that nothing succeeds like hard work.
Schools implementing the School Counts! program award students one certificate each year of high school that they meet the 4 criteria. Students can use the certificates as evidence of a professional-level work ethic when applying for jobs or to apply for scholarships at select NJ colleges.
- achieved a 95% attendance and punctuality rate
- obtained a ‘C’ or better in each course
- completed school in 8 consecutive semesters (or are on time and on target for graduation)
