AT&T gives $50K to GCPS Foundation

SUWANEE — Thanks to a $50,000 contribution from AT&T, the Academic Credit Recovery program at Phoenix High will be expanded to further help at-risk students.

The support to the Gwinnett County Public Schools Foundation will help students graduate and prepare for college.

Phoenix High, an open-campus school in Lawrenceville, offers non-traditional classes for students who may need a less-structured environment, additional time to master material, language and literacy support, or differentiated instruction to complete high school requirements.

Students who attend Phoenix have been identified as at-risk to reach their potential and graduate with their peers.

Since 2008, AT&T, under its Aspire program, has provided support to more than 1,000 national and community organizations including school districts, higher education and education-serving non-profits.
