Partnership with Colorado Education Initiative brings academic opportunity to Delta
In the fall of 2013 Delta High School became the first school in rural Colorado to be awarded a grant by the Colorado Education Initiative for a new Advanced Placement program. The grant and the new initiative aims to significantly increase the number and diversity of students enrolling in and passing math, science and English AP exams. The program trains and coaches AP and Pre-AP teachers, provides resources and support for AP students, broadens enrollment opportunities, extends learning time and provides incentives.
Studies have shown that students who take AP courses are less likely to need remediation and more likely to graduate from college. A high school student who passes just one AP exam has a 72% chance of graduating from college, compared to a 30% chance without AP. In fact, students who take an AP course but do not receive a passing score on the AP exam are still 24% more likely to graduate from college than their peers who have not engaged in AP coursework.
