The Board recognizes the value to students and to the District for students to participate in programs offered by accredited postsecondary institutions. The Superintendent will annually develop/revise articulation agreements jointly with postsecondary institutions to provide a comprehensive articulated program including, but not limited to dual enrollment and early admission programs.
The Board may approve students' participation in approved postsecondary programs while in attendance in the District for when they meet the State Board of Education's criteria. Such students will be eligible to receive secondary credit for completing courses contained in any of these programs, and such credit will count toward graduation requirements.
No student may participate without the written consent of parents and the high school principal.
The Superintendent shall establish the necessary administrative procedures to comply with State law which will thereafter be properly communicated to both students and their parents. The Superintendent shall also establish procedures for the awarding of credit and the proper entry on a student's transcript and other records of a student's participation in a postsecondary program.
The District shall deny high school credit for any portion of postsecondary courses which are taken during the period of a student's expulsion. Any District student who is expelled is not eligible for enrollment or continuation in postsecondary courses during the period of expulsion except as determined by mutual agreement between the District and the postsecondary institution.
The Superintendent shall develop and update as needed administrative procedures to implement this policy.
