Chalkbeat: What other schools can learn from two Colorado Schools of Opportunity

Hinkley High School students attend a rally on January 24, 2018 to celebrate the school's recognition as a School of Opportunity.

Story excerpt:

"[Hinkley High School is] among eight in the nation recognized as Schools of Opportunity by the National Education Policy Center at the University of Colorado.

Principal Matthew Willis said all these efforts go toward 'helping students access a better life.' Disciplinary referrals are way down, and graduation rates are way up at a school that serves a lot of students from low-income families. The school has one of the highest rates of concurrent enrollment – high school students taking college courses – in the state."
