YES GETS $400,000
The U.S. Department of Education has awarded the Anne Arundel County School District a grant totaling almost $400,000, for the Youth Experiencing Success Plus program (YES) operated by the district.
The program targets students who are at risk if dropping out of school before graduation, by providing them special social skills and integrating them into the business community. This provides both work experience and academic credits for work performed.
