Career, Technical, & Agricultural Education

Bulloch County Schools' Career Technical and Agricultural Education program prepares students for their next step after high school whether it is college, to begin a career, a registered apprenticeship, or a branch of the United States military. Career Technical and Agricultural Education leverages partnerships with industry and higher education to ensure students have the skills they need to thrive in the current and future workforce.

With a variety of career programs offered at the middle and high schools, Bulloch County students are able to explore their interests and demonstrate advanced applications as they take courses in their chosen pathway.  As students gain technical skills, they also connect the relevance of the academic skills embedded in their coursework through real-world scenarios, labs, and work settings.

End-of-Pathway Assessments

All students enrolled in the final course of a Career Technical & Agricultural Education pathway are required to take an End-of-Pathway Assessment assigned to the respective program area. Assessments are provided free of charge to Bulloch County students. End-of-Pathway Assessments are authored by national industry agencies.

Upon passing an End-of-Pathway Assessment, students may be issued an official certificate from the testing agency and will receive an honor cord to wear with their school’s graduation regalia.  Students who do not initially pass the End-of-Pathway Assessment may be allowed to retest once, but students must attend the required study/remediation session offered by the teacher. The opportunity to take the End-of-Pathway Assessment is only offered during the school year in which the student completes the final course of their Career Technical and Agricultural Education pathway.
