Director of Baton Rouge General Medical Focus Program
As part of the Focus Choice Schools network, the program is preparing students to work in diverse healthcare fields and become proficient graduates of the Baton Rouge General Medical System in a discipline outlined in the agreement. A partnership with the Baton Rouge General Medical System creates a strong foundation and an essential link to the healthcare industry while helping students to develop and apply leadership, social, civic, and healthcare skills in a professional setting. It is also important for the district and school to explore the diverse and changing healthcare system to promote interest at the elementary level and build capacity during the process.
The agreement with the Baton Rouge General Medical System will be divided into two phases: the first phase will begin with a PK-8 grade phase-in approach which will provide a year of planning for the district and the medical center to adjust and redefine the instructional process to meet the needs of students as they matriculate to Captiol High School.
Students have access to the wide multitude of resources that the hospital offers that provides students with standard-based resources necessary to be successful in the medical field and to become work-force ready.
