Gov. Robert Bentley on Tuesday announced that 20 more Alabama high schools — including two in Elmore County — soon will join 43 other schools already participating in A+ College Ready’s Advanced Placement Training and Incentive Program.
A+ College Ready, which is funded by a $13.2 million grant from the National Math and Science Initiative, was established to increase the number of Alabama students taking math, science and English AP courses and earning qualifying scores on AP exams.
“A+ College Ready is a proven investment that is preparing our students today for the jobs of tomorrow,” Bentley said. “The expansion of Advanced Placement training into 63 schools proves that Alabama is not only committed to building and sustaining a world-class workforce, but that our teachers and students are most definitely up to the task.”
The 20 new high schools, selected through a competitive application process to participate in the Advanced Placement Training and Incentive Program, include Stanhope Elmore High School and Tallassee High School.
