Goals of the A+ Schools Program

The A+ Schools Program is a school-improvement initiative established by the Outstanding Schools Act of 1993.  The program is raising academic standards, opening new doors to higher education and introducing students to the teaching profession through tutoring and mentoring activities.

The program provides incentives for local high schools to:

 Reduce the dropout rate

  • Raise academic expectation and eliminate “general track” courses
  • Provide better “career pathways” for all students
  • Work more closely with business and higher-education leaders.

 The primary goal of A+ Schools is to assure that all students are well prepared to pursue advanced education and employment.
