Specialized Secondary Program Demonstration

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

Funding supports model Specialized Secondary Programs (SSP) at selected high schools. These SSPs have developed programs that offer challenging curriculum and innovative strategies or operating structures in the high school setting. The funding provides staffs from the demonstration sites time to plan programs and host educators from other high schools interested in implementing similar programs/strategies. Visitors receive technical assistance via products, on-site visitations, and other resources.
