The A+ Schools program was established as part of the Missouri Outstanding Schools Act of 1993 in order to provide incentives for local high schools to raise academic expectations, reduce their dropout rate, establish relationships with the business community, and provide better career pathways to students. The legislation requires the Scott City R-1 School District to establish guidelines and policies in order to administer the A+ Schools program in a fair and consistent manner.
Scott City High School voluntarily chooses to participate in the A+ Schools Program as a commitment to provide all students with a rigorous education that prepares them for college, post/secondary career/technical training, and a high wage job.
Eligible students graduating from an A+ high school may qualify for the student financial incentives of the A+ schools program. As of August 2010 the administration of the scholarships of the A+ program has moved to the Missouri Department of Higher Education. Up to date changes will be communicated as they are made known.
The purpose of this Web site is to provide students, parents, and staff with information about the guidelines and policies of the Scott City R-1 School Districts A+ Schools Program. It is the responsibility of the students and parents to read, understand, and comply with the program requirements for eligibility.
