William Chrisman A+ Scholarship Training



Step One: Know the A+ requirements! Review the A+ information provided above. Stop by the Activities Office or e-mail Ms. Playter if you have any questions about your eligibility.

Step Two: In order to participate in A+, students need to complete their Letter of Intent. Once completed, it can be turned into the activities office -- which officially enrolls you into the A+ program. 

Step Three: Once the student is ready to start their tutoring hours, they will need to complete the A+ Tutoring Application and return it to Mr. Alderman or Ms. Playter in the activities office.  We will work with the building principal at the ISD school selected on the application and inform the student once their placement has been approved.

ISD Tutoring Hours Available:

  • T-F  3:15 - 3:50 (Benton, Bingham, Nowlin, Pioneer, Procter, Randall, Santa Fe)
  • T-F  3:15 - 4:35 (Blackburn, Bryant, Cassell Park, Fairmount, Glendale, Hanthorn, Korte, Little Blue, Luff, Mallinson, Mill Creek, Ott, Spring Branch, Sugar Creek, Sunshine, Sycamore, Three Trails, Wiliam Southern)
  • Limited Kids Safari hours also available upon request
  • Limited Monday hours available on select dates, follow this link: 2023-2024 Full Day Child Care Services on Non-School Days (isdschools.org) & 5th Day Enrichment Opportunities
  • Students can also complete their A+ tutoring hours by becoming an AVID Tutor at Bingham, Nowlin or Pioneer Ridge Middle Schools. Hours are 3:18 - 3:50 PM (2-4 days a week). Must provide own transportation; participate in a 2-hour training session and follow-up training as needed; Maintain prompt, regular, reliable attendance at tutoring sessions; demonstrate leadership skills and be a positive role model; facilitate study groups at the middle school level; and communicate regularly with the AVID Coordinator/AVID Elective Teacher. If interested, please complete the following AVID Tutor Form

Step Four: Monitor your status. Check back with Ms. Playter to see if you are still on track with your attendance percentage, GPA, and tutoring hours. The most common reason why students might not get certified is the 95% attendance requirement. Missing just 8 days of school each year can jeopardize A+ grant money.
