Throughout all grade levels, Paulding County students and parents will focus on Mission Possible: Graduation and Beyond. This important initiative began spring of 2008 and focuses on the importance of ALL students graduating from high school. In addition, students work collaboratively with school counselors and graduation coaches to make certain that academic and career goals are identified and met.
Under this initiative, students are referred to as the “Class of ….”. Therefore, a Kindergarten student (for the 2017 school year) is referred to as the Class of 2029. Elementary students from Kindergarten through 5th grade participate in classroom guidance career lessons and Career Fairs. Another key component of Mission Possible is the transition and advisement focus from elementary to middle school.
All middle school students complete career portfolios using GCIS JR (Georgia Career Information System JR and the Georgia Career Information System resources. Individual Graduation Plans are completed within the Course Planner in the Infinite Campus portal. In addition to these worthwhile activities, students receive academic support and major advisement/transition opportunities. Information is provided for students and parents as the student both enters and leaves middle school.
Finally, high school counselors also provide academic and career support through major advisement projects, classroom guidance, Career Fairs, Reality Fairs and an enhanced use of www.GSfutures.org and the Georgia Career Information System resources. Individual students who need additional support are provided with credit recovery opportunities, individual counseling sessions, and mentoring support.
Please join us in our support of ALL students graduating from high school!
