N
amed Mid-West's Exceptional "Getting Ready" Initiative by the College Board Innovation Award 2010College Board

Their innovative programs will serve as models so that others, by adopting these successful strategies, will be able to help more students successfully pursue a college education. - Gaston Caperton, College Board President
 
The efforts of educators across 17 school districts and six partner colleges and universities received special recognition in Chicago this week as Stark County's high school-based dual credit program was recognized as one of three exceptional college success initiatives in the midwest region (13 states) by the College Board.
 
Dual Credit courses, which served over 1,200 students last year, enable high school students to earn both college and high school credit for the same course. Enrollment this year, across all 17 of Stark's districts has surpassed 2,350.

This is the first year the College Board has extended such recognition through its new CollegeKeys Compact Innovation Awards. The award comes with a $5,000 prize for the Stark Education Partnership to continue the evaluation of the program.
 
Founded in 1900, the College Board is composed of more than 5,700 schools, colleges, universities and other educational organizations. Among its widely recognized programs are the SAT®, the PSAT/NMSQT® and Advanced Placement Program® (AP®).
