Students will receive this incentive for TWO years. A student must be considered a FULL-TIME student by the institution. Students must complete the two years of full-time enrollment at a public community college or a public vocational/technical school within FOUR years after graduation from Kirksville High School.

GOOD CITIZENSHIP To be eligible for the A+ Schools Financial Incentive students must maintain a record of good citizenship and avoidance of the unlawful use of drugs (including alcohol).

Compliance with provisions of the Kirksville R-III Activity Code. F. No person less than 18 years of age shall possess tobacco products.

When violations of the Good Citizenship policy occurs each case will be reviewed individually, and one of two responses will result. 1. A warning statement will be issued to the student and the student s parents/guardian placing the student on probation. 2. The student and the student s parents/guardians will be notified that the student has been removed from the A+ Schools Program and is not eligible for the tuition reimbursement.
