The BRIDGE (Building Resourceful Individuals to Develop Georgia’s Economy) Law (HB400) was signed by Governor Perdue on May 20, 2010.


The BRIDGE Law Requires

  • Students in 6th, 7th and 8th grades to be provided with counseling, advisement, career awareness, career interest inventories and information to assist them in evaluating their academic skills and career interests.

  • Every 8th grader to create an individual graduation plan.

  • High School students to be provided guidance, advisement, and counseling annually that will enable them to successfully complete their individual graduation plans, preparing them for a seamless transition to postsecondary study, further training, or employment.

  • The individual graduation plan must be reviewed annually and approved by the student’s counselor or teacher adviser and the student’s parent or guardian.
Schools have multiple ways of implementing the BRIDGE law. They can utilize the tools on in order to meet the requirements. 


Your students can do all of the following on

We hope that GAcollege411 will help you and your student find ways to Expand Your Opportunities!
