California Partnership Academies (CPA): Grade 10

NOTE: The application due date for this program has passed.


Funding Description

This is special funding for 50 first-year grants for the CPA Program in school districts with comprehensive high schools that are currently operating career-focused, non-funded academies that include grade 10 and commit to using the California Partnership Academies model. The CPAs are effective school/district/business partnerships, providing integrated academic and career technical instruction to students who are at risk of dropping out of school or who are not motivated by traditional curricula. The CPA model, a school-within-a-school, for students in the tenth through twelfth grades, establishes viable partnerships with either the business community or the public sector or both. Emphasis is placed on student achievement, attendance, and program accountability. The remaining balance will be allocated for professional development activities.
