16 sign at Floyd County Schools College and Career Academy’s 7th Annual Georgia Future Educators Signing Day

Across the state last week, local school systems hosted their own Georgia Future Educators Signing Day. The Floyd County Schools College and Career Academy (CCA) was proud to participate in this special event. This initiative provided the opportunity to recognize high school students who have decided to dedicate their service in the field of education. Seniors at the CCA in the Teacher Education pathway signed with Georgia Highlands College, Shorter University, Jacksonville State University, Georgia Northwestern Technical College, University of Georgia, Young Harris College, and Piedmont College. These students have been in the Teacher Education pathway for two years, working in classrooms across our system. They have had the opportunity to work in elementary and middle school classrooms, completing internships, and spending more than 275 hours observing and working with children and teachers in our local schools. So, by the end of the two years, they have enough experience to make a solid decision about the career they have chosen. While the agreement the students signed was not a legal, binding agreement, it was a great way to express their commitment to a future career.
