Barrow County School System is proud to be one of six school districts to receive Economic Development Partnership (EDP) designation for the fiscal year 2022. The recognition from the Georgia Department of Education, in collaboration with the Georgia Economic Developers Association and Georgia Power, surrounds our Work-Based Learning opportunities and our Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education (CTAE) courses and programs.
BCSS Superintendent Dr. Chris McMichael says, "Some amazing work went into bringing this home to Barrow County! It's great for the community and our school system."
GaDOE CTAE Director Dr. Barbara Wall says, "Over the last year, district CTAE leadership and stakeholders worked closely with our EDP team, including a series of virtual meetings, a site visit, and required documentation submission. This designation certifies that CTAE programs in their community are at the center of workforce development by creating career-related opportunities for students through high-level stakeholder engagement practices. CTAE will continue to do our part in ensuring Georgia remains the number one state for doing business."
