Any student in grades 9 through 12 may enroll in a postsecondary program provided s/he meets the requirements established by law and by board of education policy 2271. To be eligible to participate, a student must have a grade point average of at least 3.0 on a grading scale of 4.0, or its equivalent, in any high school courses the student has taken in the same subject area as the college course in which s/he intends to enroll.
Students will be able to elect to take courses for college credit only or for both high school and college credit. Students who choose to receive only college credit must pay the college’s tuition and fees themselves. Students who enroll in a college course for both high school and college credit will receive on their high school transcript the grade issued by the college. While the course will be clearly designated on transcripts as a college course taken for high school credit, the grade will be computed in the grade point average as if issued by the high school faculty.
By March 30th of each year, a student or his/her parent must complete and submit the Intent To Participate Form 2271 F1 filed with the high school administration which signifies the student’s intent to participate in the program for the following school year.
Prior to completing this form the student and his/her parents must participate in a special counseling session and confirm receipt of this counseling service by signing at the prescribed place on the intent form. A student will be denied high school credit for any portions of or for the entire class if taken during a period of expulsion. Any interested student should contact the guidance office to obtain the necessary information.
