I am the Middle School Curriculum Coordinator in the Career, Technical and Agricultural Education division of the Georgia Department of Education. I am also the Project Coordinator of the green-focused Program of Study Technical Assistance Academy for the state of Georgia. Georgia was one of five states selected to participate in this Academy to help states develop green-focused programs of study. Georgia chose to focus on greening our Energy Systems Career Pathway to meet our industry partners’ demands of more students choosing a career in energy. Our presentation today will cover the process and plan to increase the pipeline of students to postsecondary studies and green careers in energy.My name is Sheila Caldwell and I work for the Technical College System of Georgia as the High School Initiatives Coordinator. My role is to promote workforce development and create opportunities for high school students to earn college credit while in high school.
