Oklahoma City Public Schools Receives Grant for Programs Assisting At-Risk Students

Education is so fundamentally important that schools must do everything that they can from preventing students from dropping out before they have graduated. Students who drop out of school significantly reduce their chances of establishing a good career for themselves because they limit their opportunities since most jobs require at least a basic level of education.

AT&T has recently offered its support to reducing the number of drop-outs by offering a grant to Oklahoma City Public Schools (OKCPS). The $15,000 grant was recently provided through the National Academy Foundation (NAF), and it will be used to establish career-themed academies in schools that have a high percentage of at-risk students.

There are currently ten academies offered by OKCPS, and they are actively working with NAF to establish two more academies byAugust. The academies will help students prepare for higher level career programs like engineering. They will also offer special assistance to help each student improve their math skills.
