The OKALOOSA COUNTY CHOICE PROGRAM:
This program functions as a critical link in transitioning secondary students into successful high-skill, high-wage careers in the workforce and/or postsecondary opportunities. At the same time, CHOICE provides direction to high and middle school students through rigorous and relevant curriculum offerings. The CHOICE program is an innovative, award-winning program that allows students to earn high school credits, college credits, scholarships, and professional industry certifications, all at the same time and at no cost to the student.
As more and more jobs require advanced technical skills, employers are willing to pay higher wages to those with industry certifications. CHOICE provides the training and the opportunity for students to earn real-world skills which leads to more and better job opportunities whether the student attends college or goes directly into the workforce. CHOICE has been declared a model for career education by the US Department of Labor and has been the recipient of many awards. The program is now being replicated in many different counties across Florida.
There are currently thirteen CHOICE Institutes available in the county with more to follow in the coming years:
Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources Institute
Architecture & Construction Institute
A/V Technology & Communication Institute
Business, Management & Administration Institute
Education & Training Institute
Engineering & Technology Education Institute
Health Science Institute
Hospitality & Tourism Institute
Human Services Institute
Information Technology Institute
Law, Public Safety & Security Institute
Transportation, Distribution & Logistics Institute
According to the Florida DOE, students completing rigorous career and technical education programs in 2010, 15 to 20 percent more students met the reading, math and science college-readiness goals of their states when compared with a matched sample of students who did not have a rigorous CTE experience.
