Louisiana has two main graduation pathways for all students, including those with disabilities.
Each pathway has its own set of requirements. Your IEP Team can help you and your child decide which is best.
TOPS University Pathway
The traditional high school pathway
Prepares students to go on to a 4-year college
Jump Start Career (or TOPS Tech) Pathway
Prepares students for a technical or community college AND trains them for a specific career
Students will get a diploma and one or more "Credentials" for a certain type of job
You may also hear about the Alternate Assessment or 833 pathways, which are part of Jumpstart. You can learn more about these in the FAQ section.
