Building Awareness of EPSOs; Positive Impact on College and Career Readiness
Nashville, TN – This week, the Tennessee Department of Education, in collaboration with districts and schools across the state, is celebrating the unique role early postsecondary opportunities (EPSOs) play in preparing students for college and career during the 6th annual EPSO Week, happening October 18-22.
Across the state, schools and districts will spotlight and promote these opportunities for students through various activities and events during the week. The department encourages schools, educators, and districts to join in highlighting their work by sharing on social media using #EPSOWeek2021.
In September, the department announced nearly 1,200 high school students representing 102 school districts across the state are participating in the AP Access for ALL program, administered by the Niswonger Foundation. AP Access for ALL provides students with access to virtual AP courses and the opportunity to earn postsecondary course credit.
