About this Grantee
At this comprehensive high school, Ms. Brady and her partners improve the career and technical education curriculum for ninth grade students who are achieving below their potential. Faculty and students conduct joint site visits to career and technical education programs in neighboring communities to determine ways to strengthen the scope and sequence of curriculum at their own high school. The teachers also ensure that the new instructional modules reinforce achievement of essential standards and proficiencies required in core content areas. The goal is to make learning more hands-on and relevant for students who often fall behind in the core subjects during their freshman year.
