    Jump Start

     

    Louisiana’s Jump Start program is a new framework for career and technical education (CTE), requiring students to attain an industry-promulgated, industry-valued credential in order to graduate high school.

    Jump Start regional teams – consisting of school districts, colleges, businesses and workforce / economic development experts – collaborate to provide career courses and workplace experiences to high school students. Students have the opportunity in high school to earn industry-valued, industry-promulgated credentials in the career fields most likely to lead to high-wage jobs, while preparing them to continue their post-secondary education (in 2- and 4- year colleges) and career development.
