California Partnership Academies (CPA)

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

Funding Description

This is annual funding for the 290 currently operating CPA programs. Funding is contingent on inclusion in the approved State Budget. The CPAs are effective school/district/business partnership, providing integrated academic and career technical instruction to students who are at risk of dropping out of school or not motivated by traditional curricula. The CPA model, a school-within-a-school for students in the tenth through the 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.
