Career Blade Oklahoma: Career Awareness and Preparation System

About Oklahoma CAPS

We Help Students Visualize Careers in Your Community

As employers across the state continue to project a shortage of qualified workers, the state identified the need for a new system that will make career awareness and preparation more seamless for students, parents, employers and educators. 


The state partnered with SAI Interactive to launch a career-based curriculum, the Oklahoma Career Awareness and Preparation System for educators that illustrates localized, career-focused pathways for students in kindergarten through 12th grade.


Teachers will be able to download classroom-ready, age-appropriate lesson plans that illustrate the tasks common to careers that local businesses desire, and then link to actual local businesses near the specific school allowing more students to identify high-demand career paths that tie to new economy jobs, thereby preventing a shortage of qualified workers. 


Career Blade is offered to all schools in Oklahoma.


Partners at local Chambers, employers and schools will benefit from aggregated experience and expertise across the State for the implementation of strategies, systems and resources that improve school-to-career transitions for all students. Pilot partners will collaborate with each other and their respective Chambers to inform SAI Interactive’s development of the localized Career Blade portal.
