Spain Park High School National Contender for College and Career Transition Award

From Alabama Department of Education's PROS publication:

2-April-2014 (SPHS) - The main goal of Alabama's Plan 2020 is for all students to leave high school prepared for college and career. ACT assessments help to show the trajectory of a student’s learning and can be used for instructional guidance and customization of teaching. For the second year, ACT has launched a College and Career

Readiness Campaign to celebrate achievement and create awareness around the goal of college and career readiness for all. This year, ALSDE has submitted state nominees for all four categories:

• Student Readiness Award – Jared Crawford, Section High School, Jackson County Schools

• College and Career Transition Award – Spain Park High School, Hoover City Schools

• Career Preparedness Award – Shelton State Community College

• Workplace Success Award – Rheem Manufacturing, Inc.

The Alabama State Department of Education has submitted the nominations to ACT and they will soon choose a national winner from all states’ submissions for each category. On April 9, we are celebrating our nominees with a luncheon before, and a resolution at, the board meeting.
