Dr. Gwile Paul Freeman Co-presenter at 4th Jump Start Convention
The Louisiana Department of Education hosted the 4th Annual Jump Start Convention at the Raising Cane's River Center in Baton Rouge on January 23, 2018. More than 1,400 Louisiana education and industry leaders gathered to celebrate the state's progress in implementing the Career and Technical Education Program, to share resources, and to strategize for the future. Launched in 2014, Jump Start is the state's initiative to provide all students with career credentials that allow them to continue their education after high school. To achieve the Jump Start credential, students complete graduation pathways of courses and workplace-based experiences developed by regional teams comprised of high school, college and industry leaders.

Dr. Gwile Paul Freeman, Catahoula Parish Superintendent, was joined by Mr. Richard M. Strong, West Carroll Parish Superintendent, in presenting a session entitled “Jump Start: Rural School District Implementation”. During their presentation, Dr. Freeman and Mr. Strong shared the challenges and successes in the implementation of Jump Start from a rural school district perspective. They shared examples of pathways and funding opportunities for the implementation of Jump Start from a practitioner’s perspective.

Dr. Freeman was proud to represent Catahoula Parish and rural school districts during the presentation.
