Summary

This paper describes the A+ Schools Program that contains financial incentives to encourage districts to pursue three goals: (1) All students will graduate from high school; (2) all students will complete a selection of studies that is challenging and has identified learning expectations; and (3) all students will proceed from graduation to a college or postsecondary vocational or technical school or a high-wage job with workplace skill-development opportunities. The district can receive up to $450,000 over a 3-year period for such things as technology, software, curriculum, and professional development. Following the end of the 3 year period, the district must document that the high school has stopped offering a general education track, developed an ongoing school/community partnership, and provided evidence that the number of dropouts has decreased. With substantial progress toward these objectives, the high school can be designated an "A+ High School." The paper illustrates a case study of a high school that strives to maintain these goals.
