Greenfield High School         Program

What is         ?

Who do I contact?

Participation in the A+ Schools Program is both an honor and a privilege.  Good citizenship is a measure of the quality of a student’s conduct both in school and away from school.  All of the A+ program’s eligibility factors are indicators of good citizenship.  A+ Program participants are expected to exhibit standards of behavior that will bring credit to themselves, the A+ Schools Program, our school, and the community.


To qualify for the A+ financial incentive, a student’s behavior will be in compliance with the Board of Education policies, the guidelines in the student hand book , the A+ Program guidelines, the Safe Schools Act, and the state and local regulations and law.

 

In an effort to make college or vocational education available to every Missouri high school graduate, the Missouri General Assembly established the A+ Schools Program as part of the Outstanding Schools Act of 1993. Greenfield High School became a designated A+ school during the 2011-2012 school year. 

Graduates of designated A+ schools who successfully complete the requirements of the A+ Program may be eligible to receive reimbursement for the cost of tuition and general fees while attending a Missouri public community college or vocational/technical school.

A+ enrollment is voluntary.  Students may participate in the program by completing an A+ agreement/citizenship form.  This form is available in the A+ Coordinator’s office. 

Students should begin their participation in the A+ Program at the beginning of their freshmen year.  Early enrollment in the program allows the students and parents to receive updated information on the A+ Schools Program from the A+ Coordinator.  Parents/families of A+ students will also receive a status report twice a year.

It is recommended that a student enroll in the A+ Program during their freshmen or sophomore year.  A student can enroll at any time, as long as the student realizes that he/she must have sufficient time to complete the eligibility requirements, specifically the completion of 50 hours of tutoring/ mentoring activities during his/her junior and senior years.
