Morgan County high schools join A+ College Ready Program

Special to the Enquirer

Morgan County Schools continues the plan for academic excellence with the addition of Falkville High School and Priceville High School as A+ College Ready Program schools.

These schools be joining the ALSDE/A+ College Ready Program for Cohort XI.

Last year, Brewer High School, along with Cotaco, Eva, Lacey’s Spring, Sparkman and Union Hill implemented pre-AP and AP courses for students in grades six through 12. Morgan County Schools and A+ College Ready have a plan to implement the A+ College Ready Program into Danville High School, Danville Middle School, West Morgan High School and West Morgan Middle School next year.

As a result of their hard work, Brewer High School students earned 46 qualifying scores, and Brewer was recognized by A+ College Ready as one of only five Schools of Excellence in the state of Alabama.

“We are elated that the Morgan County School system leaders, principals and classroom teachers have chosen to implement this program in order to increase access and opportunity for their students,” said Tammy Dunn, vice president for academic affairs with A+ College Ready. “Every year it is a joy to welcome new schools into the A+ College Ready family. We look forward to what can be accomplished for Alabama students as a result of these new partnerships.

For the 2018-19 school year, Falkville High School, Priceville Junior High School and Priceville High School are projected to accomplish the following goals:

  • Implement AP courses in math, science, English, social studies and computer science.
  • Expand enrollment in pre-AP courses, leading up to AP courses to create a pipeline of students

prepared for college-level work.

  • Increase the number of students meeting critical college-ready benchmarks on ACT-based assessments.

In addition, teachers from Danville High School, Danville Middle School, West Morgan High School and West Morgan Middle School will attend pre-AP and AP training this summer to provide pre-AP and AP classes to their students. This training will allow teachers to gain insight into the program and prepare them to become A+ College Ready Program Schools.

All secondary schools are on track to become A+ College Ready program schools by the 2019-2020 school year.
