ERZ Provides Professional Development On Quality Core Curriculum to its College Preparatory Academy for the Delta (CPAD) Faculty.  

The 12 faculty members for the CAPD faculty were involved in training on the Quality Core Curriculum on Saturday, October 12th.  The CPAD (Academy) is in its 3rd year of service to the Blytheville schools and is directed and managed by the ASU-ERZ. The 144 students, three cohorts of 48 students from the 9th, 10th and 11th grade classes at Blytheville High School, are being provided a very special and intense program of instruction, beyond their regular school year, over their four years in high school to help enhance their college readiness skills. The goal of the program is to assist Blytheville Schools in graduating students that will be eligible to enroll in college with an adequate ACT score and academic skills to enroll in college without having to enroll in any non-credit remedial college classes.  Early indications from ACT quality Core testing indicate the program is on target to meet this goal.  This program is directed by the ASU-ERZ and funded by the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation, Blytheville Public Schools, and ASU College of Education.
