Information Regarding Changes to the Ohio Careeer Information System (OCIS)

As mentioned in previous messages, effective July 1, the Ohio Career Information System (OCIS) will be transitioning to OhioMeansJobs K-12. The initial phase of this transition requires current OCIS users to print or save their Portfolios outside of OCIS. In addition, as of today, students can now register with OhioMeansJobs K-12 and create their Backpacks.

One feature of the Backpack allows a student to upload documents. Therefore, any files a student has saved from an OCIS Portfolio can now be uploaded to his or her OhioMeansJobs K-12 Backpack. This action will not be done automatically. A student will first need to print or save his or her OCIS Portfolio outside of the system. Then, visit OhioMeansJobs.com to create an OhioMeansJobs K-12 Backpack. There are several resources available to support you and your students with this transition:

o   Click here to log in to your SAFE account and register for a session via STARS.

o   Enter “OhioMeansJobs” in the event name search box (no spaces).

o   Choose 9 a.m. or 3 p.m. on these dates: 4/18, 4/21, 4/23, 4/29, 5/8, 5/12, 5/13 or 5/15.

The documents above are accessible on the department’s website here or by visiting education.ohio.gov and searching for Career Connections. I encourage you to share this email with your colleagues and look forward to answering any questions you have during an online information session. You also may contact CareerConnections@education.ohio.gov with any questions or concerns.
