Building a Future-Ready
Community
Bibb County School District
Macon, Georgia
CHALLENGE: Seventy-five
percent of Bibb County
School District high school
students reported feeling
unprepared to interview for
a scholarship or job, which
affected the number who
joined the workforce or went
on to college.
INITIATIVE: The Mock
Interview Fair exposes students to interview situations
and helps them practice the
skills involved. Conducted
annually at all middle and
high schools in the district
from January to March, the

program features a weeklong instructional unit that
includes completing an
application, writing a cover
letter and résumé, and participating in a 20-minute
mock interview with a community partner. In addition,
students learn to dress
professionally.
IMPACT: Since the Mock
Interview Fair program's
implementation in 2012,
more than 7,500 students
have participated and the
district's graduation rate
has increased from 52.3

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT-Bibb County School District's
Mock Interview Fair program connects students with local
business professionals to help teach the necessary skills
to get a job.

percent to 77.1.
"This component is an
essential piece of the puzzle
in reference to the growth
of students graduating
future-ready," says Cassandra Miller-Washington,
executive director of career

technical and agricultural
education.
ADVICE: Gaining long-term
commitment from community stakeholders and business partners is essential to
ensuring sustained success.

Industry Credential Initiative
Sumter County School District
Bushnell, Florida

CHALLENGE: The Florida Department of Education
and CareerSource Florida created opportunities for high
school students to earn nationally recognized industry
credentials in an effort to build a workforce-ready population across the state.
INITIATIVE: The district operates 17 career and technical education programs, providing students with diverse
opportunities to explore career areas and develop entrylevel workplace skills. At least 13 programs allow students
to attain nationally recognized industry credentials in
areas such as AutoCAD, Adobe, Oracle and Microsoft
products. Credentials require more than 150 classroom
hours of instruction and align to high-demand occupations, such as certified nursing assistant and EKG
technician.
IMPACT: Since the program's inception in the 2011-12
school year, the number of credentials earned by students
has increased by 133 percent. The state of Florida pro-

vides bonus funding to districts and programs for each
credential awarded, and in 2016-17 the district received
more than $150,000.
ADVICE: "Gain support from the local workforce," says
Deborah Moffitt, senior director of curriculum and
instruction. "Also, the instruction necessary to help students succeed on adult industry credential exams is often
more than the expectations of secondary curriculum
standards."
READY TO WORK-
Students in
Sumter County
School District can
earn nationally
recognized industry
credentials in 13
programs, including
as a nursing
assistant.
