A Fresno high school is losing federal funding after they failed to meet all of their goal requirements.
Since 2006 Roosevelt High School has received funding as part of the Quality Education Investment Act, a program geared towards helping under-performing schools reach performance and resource benchmarks.
While Roosevelt did make advancements, the school's Academic Performance Index (API) score dropped last year.
Fresno Unified Superintendent Michael Hanson released the following statement regarding the funding change: "Fresno Unified is committed to providing a high quality education for all students. In recent weeks, we have announced several significant accomplishments in our district: Fresno Unified is among the top five in the nation in advanced placement test-taking gains and we were proud to announce that a total of 3,543 students have applied to one or more colleges and universities, many of those students are from Roosevelt High School."
