Georgia Career Pathways: Programs of Study, New Rule
Georgia Career Pathways: Programs of Study, Old Rule

This page is available for students, parents, teachers, counselors, coaches and administrators advising first-time ninth grade students in Fall 2008 and will follow the New Georgia High School Graduation Rule (IHF-6). The creation and implementation of career pathways is a national trend in Career, Technical and Agriculture Education (CTAE). The concept has its roots in the over-all education and career planning process involving ALL students. Instructors, counselors and administrators will become familiar with the Education and Career Planning Tools (programs of study) in an effort to maximize opportunities for students to be better prepared for their next step in the education and career planning process—the workforce or postsecondary education.
