Community Not-for-Profit Supported by Chargebacks911 Looks Forward to New School Year

Paid for Grades, the Pinellas County student incentive program, is back. As outlined in a recent feature by News Break, though, program administrators are looking forward to more than helping another class of Bay Area high schoolers this year. They’re anticipating record enrollment through the end of the 2022 spring semester!

News Break bills itself as “the nation's #1 intelligent local news app.” They feature important, up-to-the-minute reporting on news from all over the country, drawing millions of readers each month.

Despite complications resulting from the pandemic, Paid for Grades has hit a promising stride in the past three years. During the 2020-2021 school year, 91 students successfully completed the program, regardless of the added challenges of remote learning. Thus far this year, 451 students have qualified for the program. The schools participating this year include Boca Ciega High School, Hollins High School, and Lakewood High School.

By the end of the 1st academic quarter, 390 students were still eligible for the program. And, even more exciting, Paid for Grades are hoping to top 1,000 enrollees for next year!

In honor of everyone’s hard work and achievements, PFG organizers are aiming for a celebration on May 20th, depending on the state of the pandemic at that time. The organization will send out advanced notice of any changes to scheduled physical or virtual events in advance of that date.
