Second Step Statement of Need Resources
The Office of Prevention and Family Support, at the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services, our office is releasing a Second Step Statement of Need (SoN) for the upcoming school year. Please download the Statement of Need (SoN) documents below or visit
http://dfcs.dhs.georgia.gov/future-funding-opportunities to view the SoN and attachments. This SoN is for any public or private school in Georgia, Pre-K through 8th grade. This year we have added a Child Protection Unit requirement for grades Pre-K through 5th. We have made it clear in our SoN that Second Step complements PBIS and is not a replacement.

Career Development is a critical now more than ever to help prepare our students to move seamlessly from middle school to high school and them to the proper path to their future. Possible paths include, but are not limited to technical certificates, technical diplomas,or associates degrees at a local Georgia technical college. If some of your students choose a path to a four-year college or university in Georgia, planning and taking the proper set of courses in high school will be critical to make the most of their class schedule. Your students may plan on entering the workforce after graduating from high school. Making sure that they earn an industry-recognized credential gives them an added boost because they already have specific skills needed in a given career and the employer won't have to provide as much training.
This site is developed to streamline links for middle school counselors to find resources and tools to help them provide the appropriate guidance and advisement to students and parents.

Students can find a career of interest, but do they know whether that career is currently in high demand by employers, or require high degree of technical skills, or provide a high wage?
