To better prepare our students for a smooth transition from school to college and career, the district hosts the annual Career Connections event to promote career awareness. This year’s event is set for Oct. 22. At Career Connections, more than 5,000 9th grade students from the district’s seven College and Career Academy high schools will learn about career fields through “show and tell” interviews and activities with community members from across the career spectrum. Prospective exhibitors can learn more on about the event and find a sign-up form on the Academy web page. There’s no cost for exhibitors to participate in the event. To learn more, they can contact Dr. Kyle Jones in the Office of Academies and Career and Technical Education at 678-301-7050 or by email.
