College & Career Planning
Because MECHS is committed to its career/college program a new position was created to focus on helping students plan for their futures. Career Specialists work one-on-one to guide students in assessing and identifying their interests, skills and abilities, exploring careers that match them, and considering their postsecondary options to prepare for those careers. This guidance not only complies with the requirements of the BRIDGE Legislation, but it is also a principle that MECHS adhered to before it was mandated. MECHS Career Specialists utilize the GAfutures website and a customized checklist of activities to ensure that students are in compliance. Students are also encouraged to do more than is required and complete “Tools for College,” a course for credit.
