SUBJECT: 2021 Economic Security Report Summary
Florida’s Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) has released their most recent Economic Security Report. The report details the economic outcomes of recent completers from our public postsecondary institutions. Please consider it a useful tool to generate conversations about the potential of the credentials offered by our area technical centers, state colleges and/or universities.
Encouraging families to start college and career conversations early will likely result in higher persistence and success rates. Moreover, it is a statutory requirement to provide a summary of the DEO’s annual Economic Security Report to parents of students in grades 6-12. The 2021 report and summary is now posted at https://www.floridajobs.org/wser-home/products-andservices/public-higher-education and may be distributed by your normal means of communication.
Florida’s Economic Security Report is just one of the many college and career planning tools available to students and their families. For more information and resources, visit https://www.fldoe.org/academics/college-career-planning/ or https://www.fldoe.org/academics/career-adult-edu/.
Again, we encourage you to share the many tools available for students and families to help them make informed career decisions. Should you have any questions or need further assistance, you may contact Cameron Reed at Cameron.Reed@fldoe.org.
