California Partnership Academies Program (Proposition 98 funds)

This is annual funding for the currently operating CPA programs included in the State Budget. 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 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.
