Current Leaders in the 2010/11 Allstate "Expanding Opportunities" Initiative

The Allstate “Expanding Opportunities” Initiative is designed to help support and expand competitive academic debate programs in the CDL high schools with the highest Title I percentages, sponsored and funded by the CDL’s Premier Sponsor, Allstate Insurance. (Title I, everyone should know, refers to the level of family income below which a student is eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, and certain other federal benefits. It is approximately $33,000 or less annual income for a family of four.) The threshold level for a school being part of the Allstate “Expanding Opportunities” Initiative is having an 85% or higher Title I student population.

Here is an alphabetical list of the 29 high schools that are part of the 2010/11 Allstate “Expanding Opportunities” Initiative.
