A+ and Testing Office Communication
A+ Info for the Class of 2020 This information applies to 2020 graduates only.
TUTORING: The A+ Scholarship requires students to complete 50 hours of unpaid tutoring or mentoring. For the 2020 seniors, the number of tutoring/mentoring hours has been reduced temporarily to 25 to accommodate those students who are unable to complete 50 hours prior to high school graduation. This temporary guidance has been set by the Department of Higher Education and Workforce Development (MDHE) and only applies to 2020 seniors.
ATTENDANCE: The days which Rockwood is conducting school under the Alternative Learning Plan will not negatively impact your student's A+ attendance.
MATH REQUIREMENT: The Algebra I EOC requirement is waived for all 2020 high school seniors, including those who have already taken the exam but did not meet the requirement as well as those who have not yet taken the exam. Waiver of this requirement also exempts the 2020 seniors from having to meet the ACT math subscore/high school GPA alternative.
Please check the MHS A+ and Testing Coordinator's website and the Missouri Department of Higher Educations A+ site for updates.
