KOSHKONONG-- Koshkonong High School received A+ designation April 18 with a vote of the Missouri State School Board at their meeting in Jefferson City. Thirty-three schools over the state received designation that day including the Thayer School District in Oregon County.

A+ designation will allow eight graduating seniors who qualify at Koshkonong to receive reimbursement for tuition and books at Missouri community colleges and vocation/technical schools, including SMSU-West Plains.

According to Koshkonong High School A+ Coordinator Brenda Lambe, just over 170 schools statewide have received A+ designation, approximately 35 percent of the schools in the state.

Lambe said, Koshkonong students celebrated the A+ designation at the school May 1 with staff and students. She said cake was served and prizes were awarded.

A reception was also held at the school to honor the A+ graduates, the Quiz Bowl team, Interscholastic team, as well as students who received a five on the MAP and students with a GPA of 10 points or nine points. Beta Club installation was held and academic letters were handed out that day.

In order for students to qualify for the A+ program they must have attended an A+ school for three consecutive years, have a GPA of 2.5, 95 percent attendance over four years, and 50 hours of tutoring for younger students and a record of good citizenship.
