Angela Hoston heads the program:</p><blockquote><p>"The goal is to have every school have a partner, and not just one partner but multiple partners. We want to raise the academic achievement levels of the bottom one-third of every classroom, and get them to the highest achievement level possible."</p></blockquote><p>Hoston says each business can work with a principal to craft a unique program based on what the school needs and what the business can offer.</p><p>The initiative was announced at Gompers Elementary, where staff from the Doubletree Fort Shelby Hotel have built a garden and mentor students.
