Norman Schools Tapped for National Pilot Program (Aug 30, 2011)

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Norman Public Schools is one of four school districts across the country selected for a national pilot program that focuses on digital learning.

School officials announced Tuesday the district was chosen by America's Promise Alliance, a group focused on improving the lives of young people that was founded by former Secretary of State Colin Powell. The pilot program is part of the alliance's Grad Nation Campaign that was created to end the increase in high school dropouts.

Norman officials say the three-year pilot program will include supplemental instruction aimed at boosting graduation rates and better preparing students for college. It will focus on creating additional opportunities for students in both remedial courses and advanced placement classes.
