American Graduate Town Hall

What are the choices that lead to a high school diploma?  Who is there to push a student to reach their potential?  Tom Flanigan moderates a panel of educational and community leaders headlined by Florida Senate President Don Gaetz (R) and Senator Bill Montford (D).  They’ll answer your questions about the varied paths towards a high school graduation.  In particular, we’ll focus on alternative paths to a high school degree and the support available to students outside of school and family settings.

The CAPE Act

Over the last couple of years, many students have been receiving specialized education from career academies.  Created by the Florida Career and Professional Education Act, these academies focus on career readiness while working to meet workforce needs in our state.  Students receive certifications in high demand job fields, aiming to be career ready upon graduation.  How will this alternative path benefit students and local businesses?

Community Support

When the school day ends, parents and caregivers are not always home to supervise students.  There are many organizations that can provide that supervision, providing a positive setting in which children and adolescents can be mentored and inspired.  We’ll discuss the options available, and how to find the best fit for your student.
