VINCENNES, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — After numerous years of flawless national scores, Indiana JAG programs are set to double by next school year.
Jobs for America’s Graduates programs mainly focus on college and career readiness along with workforce development. This will allow for schools to introduce these programs, along with expanding the sizes of the schools, that already have it in place.
These expansions will range from many different things, depending on location.
It will allow programs that are already in place to add room for up to 40 more students into their programs. This will also allow schools with lower graduation rates and higher rates of reduced and free lunch, to add JAG to their school.
Shaun Brames is the JAG College and Career Success Program Manager at Vincennes University, and he expresses that this program was well-worthy of these expansions.
“Every year that we keep achieving that national six of six standard that shows the success that we are having with the JAG program in Indiana, it most definitely justifies the continued expansion,” Brames said. “I am very excited about it. That is more students I can introduce to Vincennes University and the great things that we do with our JAG college success program. “
All of the programs JAG provides to students are completely free of charge.
