Policies and Programs

“Education for all students should be relevant and provide appropriate transitions to future careers and lifelong learning. SC students can and should learn to apply their knowledge and skills to real life, real work, and real world situations, both predictable and unpredictable.

The SC Education and Economic Development Act of 2005 (EEDA) highlights work-based learning experiences supporting school-to-work opportunities, with a concentration for students in grades 7-12 and into postsecondary education. South Carolina’s work-based learning opportunities are administered through a partnership with regional career specialists; school counselors; school-level career specialists; work-based learning coordinators; and Perkins IV, Title I alliances. These efforts and entities are aligned with the state’s 12 Workforce Investment Act (WIA) regions.”
