Note from DOE Regarding Georgia Career Information System (GCIS)

posted Sep 9, 2016, 5:29 AM by GSIS Conference

Georgia Career Information System (GCIS) will be available for the 2016-2017 school year as an alternative to GAcollege411.  As you are aware, GAcollege 411 is now GAfutures and, effective July 1, 2016, no longer supports k-12 students. 

 

As a result of collaborative efforts across divisions and agencies, GCIS will be provided to all school districts at no cost, allowing students the opportunity to explore careers, take career-related assessments, and have a tool to help develop an individual graduation plan.  GCIS will be available for all middle, high, and state schools to utilize in fulfilling the BRIDGE legislation as well as CCRPI indicators.  This is great news for our students across Georgia!

 

Special thanks goes to Georgia Vocational Rehabilitation Agency (GVRA) staff for their partnership with the Special Education and Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education (CTAE) division at the GaDOE to  implement services outlined through the E3 Grant (Georgia’s Career Pathways to Work: Explore, Engage, and Employ) received by GVRA through the US Department of Education, as part of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) to help reach students as early as middle school and to provide more inclusive services to all students.  It is expected that this grant and the opportunities will help many students across Georgia to have a pathway to success.

 

Additional information will be available later this month concerning the rollout schedule and how systems will gain access.  Webinars and face to face trainings will be held this fall.  Please feel free to contact Dr. Myrel Seigler at mseigler@doe.k12.ga.us or Maria Grovner at mgrovner@doe.k12.ga.us with questions.
