Good news from The Road Map Project. One of their efforts is to make sure that as many eligible students as possible sign up for the College Bound Scholarships. Looks like it paid off as a record 91% of eligible students signed up (as compared with 74% lat year). Thank you to everyone who reminded a kid or their PTA.
The scholarship will cover students who pledge to graduate from high school, demonstrate good citizenship and seek admission to a college.
The area covered includes South Seattle, Auburn, Federal Way, Highline, Renton, and Tukwila. Tukwila signs up 100% of all eligible students while Auburn climbed from 38% to 67%. Over 3900 student signed-up.
The Seattle schools covered are Secondary BOC, Merce, Aki Kurose, Orca, South Shore, Washington and Denny. Secondary BOC, Mercer, and Aki Kurose enrolled 100% of their eligible students. South Seattle schools overall went from 91% to 95%.
