Questions on elementary schools

We had the following questions submitted by email. Responding here for the benefit of all challenge participants.

1) Are “Priority Schools” limited to high schools only?

Answer: No. Elementary schools may also be categorized as "Priority Schools."

2) Under the School and Student Needs criteria, “college access” is listed as one of the four areas to be addressed in addition to attendance, behavior, and course performance. If we focus on poor performing elementary schools, how do we connect to the college access criteria?

Answer: For elementary schools, college access needs and service resources/activities would focus generally on college and career awareness. Sample service activities could include a college fair at a school, college visits with students, or visiting speakers talking about their career and the college education required to pursue that career.
