Governor Terry McAuliffe today announced a new series for middle and high school teachers and counselors that will support Virginia’s students as they plan to obtain a post-secondary degree or credential. Life After High School: Navigating education, career and debt was developed in partnership with the Virginia Council on Economic Education (VCEE), its affiliated university-based Centers for Economic Education, and the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond. The program is provided at no charge to Virginia teachers or school divisions through support from the Fund for Teaching Excellence.
Pilot sessions of the new series were launched in the fall and reached over 100 middle and high school teachers and counselors. With 110 additional educators set to participate this Spring, the program expects to collectively reach an estimated 36,000 students by the end of the school year.
