Between August 4th and September 30th we will be accepting nominations for awards that focus on the courage, vision and heart of reengaged students and the adults who serve them. We are encouraging nominations of at promise students and committed educators, policy makers and other program administrators who are making a difference across the country. There will be five Courage Awards conferred with a $1,000 scholarship for each of the five students!
Nominations will be reviewed by the Alternative Accountability Policy Forum advisory committee for recommendations to the Reaching At Promise Student Association Board of Directors. The RAPSA Board will make the award selections. All decisions of the RAPSA Board are final.
Our intent is to bring the community serving at promise students together to recognize the courageous work that is being done by each of you to serve our remarkably resilient student population. We hope that all nominees and nominators will be encouraged and inspired by their inclusion.
