At a check presentation ceremony held at VUSD administration office, AT&T is contributing $200k to help more students graduate from high school and get ready for careers and college.
Contribution is part of the AT&T Aspire Local Impact initiative supporting best-of-best organizations. Through a nationwide highly rigorous and competitive process, Vallejo Unified School District will be awarded a $200,000 contribution from AT&T in recognition of the district's successful and effective "Wall-to-Wall" Career Academies Initiative. Vallejo Unified is one of 47 recipients nationwide that were selected through AT&T's Aspire program.
The Vallejo City Unified School District will use AT&T's contribution to expand the program's implementation of Wall-to-Wall Career Academies that provide specialized learning in different focus areas to every high school student in the district. As part of the regular curriculum, these academies are designed to reduce the dropout rates, narrow the achievement gap, and increase class attendance. The academies give the students the tools they need to succeed, helping pave the way for their college educations and future careers.
