EEDA.What is it?
1.
  • EEDA stands for Education Economic Development
    Act, 2005
  • What does EEDA call for?
  • The South Carolina legislature created this Act
    to focus on a curriculum aligned with state
    content standards organized around a career
    cluster system.
  • Why a Career Cluster System?
  • The Career Cluster System provides students with
    both strong academics and real-world problem
    solving skills. Students must be provided
    individualized educational, academic, and
    career-oriented choices and greater exposure to
    career information and opportunities.
  • How does it work?
  • This system must promote the involvement and
    cooperative effort of parents, teachers, and
    school counselors in assisting students in making
    these choices, in setting career goals, and in
    developing individual graduation plans to achieve
    these goals.
  • What are the goals for EEDA?
  • High school students must be provided guidance
    and curricula that will enable them to complete
    successfully their individual graduation plans
    (IGP), preparing them for a seamless transition
    to relevant employment, further training, or
    postsecondary study.

E-IGP formerly the Four Year Plan
  • E-IGP stands for Electronic Individual Graduation
    Plan
  • Every student going into the 9th, 10th, or 11th
    grades will have an E-IGP
  • The E-IGP is documentation of high school
    courses, post-secondary objectives, planned and
    completed extracurricular activities, and
    extended learning opportunities of a student.
    The E-IGP includes the School of Study, Cluster
    of Study, and Major(s) chosen by a student.
  • The E-IGP will be updated yearly and will be
    accessible through a secure connection to parents
    and students on the internet.
