Slater School District A+ Program
Slater High School A+ students must have 50 hours of tutoring as part of their eligibility criteria.
Full criteria is outlined in the Slater High School Participation Agreement (see below) and on the Missouri Department of Higher Education website. Students may pick up copies of their participation agreement, tutoring logs, and attendance appeal forms just outside the HS Principal's Office. Students may also download their own documents from this site.
Students and parents can view A+ hours by signing into their SIS Student or Parent Portal. If you need assistance with your portal log in, please contact Mrs. Barb McWhirter at 660-529-2278.
The Coordinating Board for Higher Education approved the following qualifying scores for the ACT exam alternative to the A+ Algebra I End-of-Course Exam requirement. The CBHE is charged with establishing these minimum scores annually. Graduating A+ Seniors must meet one of the ACT math score/high school GPA in accordance with the following scale if they do not score proficient or advanced on the Algebra I or a higher level math end-of-course exam (EOC).
ACT Math Score/GPA
ACT 17 and 2.5 or greater GPA
ACT 16 and 2.8 or greater GPA
ACT 15 and 3.0 or greater GPA
With these alternatives, students now have at least four opportunities with which to meet the A+ Scholarship’s college preparedness criterion. Once a student meets one of the following criteria, the student is considered to have met this requirement regardless of previous or subsequent scores received on any of the other options. For example, a student that scores basic on the Algebra I EOC, scores proficient on the Algebra II EOC, and scores a 16 on the ACT math subtest is eligible based on the Algebra II EOC score even though previous EOC and subsequent ACT scores did not meet the eligibility threshold. Students can also retake all of these exams in an effort to achieve a qualifying score.
1. Achievement of a score of proficient or advanced on the Algebra I end-of-course exam requirement
2. Achievement of a score of proficient or advanced on any DESE-authorized mathematics end-of-course exam that is at a higher level than Algebra I
3. Achievement of one of the scores listed above for the ACT math score/high school GPA in accordance with the CBHE approved scale while in high school. Students in this category will not be eligible for A+ reimbursement until a qualifying score has been achieved while in high school. Until eligibility is established, students can seek assistance to remediate their math deficiencies, including taking developmental coursework at their own expense.
