Career Readiness - KOSSA

The Kentucky Occupational Skills Standards Assessment (KOSSA) took place at Nicholas County High School on February 27, 2015.  Scores were released to the district on April 16, 2015.

KOSSA is one of two measures that can be given to students to meet the career ready technical portion of college and career readiness. KOSSA tests are aligned to CTE Career Pathways.
