Georgia law now requires all students in grades eight through 12 have an individual graduation plan. The BRIDGE Act (Building Resourceful Individuals to Develop Georgia’s Economy) was passed by the Georgia legislature in May, 2010. These plans are required to be updated annually by the student, approved by the counselor and signed by the parent. All Floyd County students in grades eight through 12 now have Individual graduation plans. Individual graduation plans include planned coursework to meet graduation requirements as well as Career Pathway requirements. With early release parent conference days coming up next week on Thursday and Friday, parents can get a head start on checking these plans online.
Floyd County Schools has chosen to use the GaCollege411.org website to develop the plans for students and facilitate parent review and approval. All middle and high schools will have these plans available for parents to review and sign indicating their approval during Early Release days next week. Parents can review these plans online and approve them electronically by having the student electronically invite them to review the plan on GaCollege411.org. If a parent has already signed and returned the plan or electronically approved the plan, they do not need to do this again during during parent conferences.
Parents may contact their child's counselor with questions about this process or about a child’s Individual graduation plan.
