Our A+ College Ready Team wants to wish every teacher, student, and administrator a Happy School Year! We know this year has gotten off to a great start, and we are excited for all of the learning and growing in store for our teachers and students!
To kick off this year, join us in welcoming our new cohort, Cohort 12 (listed below)! Each of these schools has joined A+ College Ready as a Program School. These schools will work with us during the next three school years to accomplish these goals:
- implement AP courses in math, science, English, social studies and computer science,
- increase the number of students enrolled in and earning new AP qualifying scores,
- aggressively expand enrollment in courses in 6th-11th grade that prepare students for AP courses and to create a pipeline of students prepared for college-level work,
- and significantly increase the number of students meeting critical college-ready benchmarks on ACT-based assessments.
Additionally, three schools were selected to participate as Pipeline Schools. These schools will institute an aggressive training program designed to increase the number of students succeeding in rigorous coursework in an effort to prepare for a full implementation of Advanced Placement courses the following year.
We are elated that these leaders and classroom teachers have chosen to implement this program in order to increase access and opportunity for their students. Every year it is a joy to welcome new schools into the A+ College Ready family. We look forward to what can be accomplished for Alabama students as a result of these new partnerships. Welcome to the program and have a great year! #ExpectMore19
