Fruita, GJ high schools selected for AP program

Fruita Monument High School and Grand Junction High School are among seven Colorado schools tapped to participate in an Advanced Placement improvement program next school year.

The goal of the program is to increase diversity in AP classes and get more AP students to perform well on Advanced Placement tests.

As participants in the program, Advanced Placement English, science and math teachers at high schools from Colorado Springs, Denver, Grand Junction, Littleton, Northglenn and Pueblo will receive training in how to improve student success in those courses.

Students at those schools will get extra resources and support, more time in AP classes, and both students and teachers will be incentivized to succeed.

The program, known as Colorado Legacy Schools, will be implemented through the Colorado Legacy Foundation, a private, nonprofit group focused on education.

The foundation has so far gathered $128,640 from various organizations to implement the Colorado Legacy Schools program, and a challenge grant will provide an additional $150,000 for the program.

Samantha Long, director of Colorado Legacy Schools, said the seven schools selected for the program were chosen based on their “readiness and interest” in implementing the program in 2010–11, according to a press release from the Colorado Department of Education.
