The school has been affiliated with the XQ Super School program for the past two years, with the student-inspired Bartleby Program. XQ provided $200,000 for the start up and first two years of that program.
Under the new agreement between the school and XQ, Bartleby will change. Director of Schools Corey Gardenhour said the Bartleby name will be phased out in favor of XQ Super School Elizabethton High School.
The agreement comes after the school was selected by SQ to receive the full $2.3 million to be distributed over four years. XQ is a California nonprofit public benefit corporations organized and operated for charitable and educational purposes.
The agreement has detailed restrictions on how the grant money is to be spent, focusing on the XQ project and establishing performance milestones for the disbursement of funds.
