Important 8th Grade Parent Information
8th Grade Parents and Guardians
As part of the BRIDGE Law (House Bill 400), your student worked on their individual graduation plans, future career interests, learned about Georgia’s dual enrollment Move On When Ready (MOWR) program and Georgia’s HOPE and Zell Miller Scholarship programs Their individual graduation plans and self-selected careers can be accessed through their GCIS Portfolios at http://www.gcic.peachnet.edu. The BRIDGE law was signed into law May 2010 to create an atmosphere motivating middle- and high-school students to learn because they see the relevance of education to their dreams and future plans. Please log on and check it out with your child!
