3 Office of Postsecondary Coordination and Alignment The Department of Education established the Office of Postsecondary Coordination and Alignment (OPCA), which is charged with expanding and promoting early postsecondary credit opportunities for high school students OPCA is responsible for collaborating with secondary, postsecondary, and industry partners to implement the vision, policies, and recommendations established by the Consortium for Cooperative Innovative Education. Mission To provide Tennessee high school students access to early postsecondary opportunities and to educate students and families about choosing and completing relevant career pathways. Creating Rigorous Early Postsecondary Opportunities for Students 3

4 Dual Enrollment (DE) 4 Creating Rigorous Early Postsecondary Opportunities for Students Dual enrollment A postsecondary course, taught either at the postsecondary institution or at the high school, by the postsecondary faculty (may be credentialed adjunct faculty), which, upon successful completion of the course, allows students to earn postsecondary and secondary credit simultaneously. Students in these courses are enrolled at the postsecondary institution and pay tuition and fees associated with the course.

5 Dual Credit (DC) 5 Creating Rigorous Early Postsecondary Opportunities for Students Local dual credit A high school course which is aligned with a postsecondary challenge examination at a specific postsecondary institution, which allows students exceeding an established cut score to earn postsecondary credit at that institution (typically not transferrable). Local dual credit agreements occur between one postsecondary institution and one or more LEAs. Statewide dual credit A high school course aligned with a postsecondary challenge examination developed and approved by the Consortium for Cooperative Innovative Education, which allows students exceeding an established cut score to earn postsecondary credit at any Tennessee public postsecondary institution. This course is taught by high school faculty at the high school. The Tennessee department of education administers the challenge exam and maintains record of student scores/earned credits.

6 Knowing the Key Differences 6 Creating Rigorous Early Postsecondary Opportunities for Students Dual credit courses are high school courses. Dual enrollment courses are postsecondary courses. Statewide dual credit courses are currently in pilot form and should only be reported by pilot sites.

7 Benefits of Dual Enrollment and Dual Credit Courses 7 Creating Rigorous Early Postsecondary Opportunities for Students Students can earn postsecondary credits in high school, Become familiar with postsecondary learning expectations and requirements, Develop confidence and study skills necessary for success in postsecondary coursework, Make more informed decisions about postsecondary plans and career goals, and Decrease the time and cost of completing a certificate or degree.

8 Importance of Accurately Reporting Student Participation in DE and DC Courses 8 Creating Rigorous Early Postsecondary Opportunities for Students Districts and the states will be able to distinguish the different types of early postsecondary opportunities available to students, Identify where students have access to these opportunities and where greater access is still needed, and Better understand how these opportunities help to create rigorous and relevant pathways for students.

9 Process for Reporting Dual Enrollment and Dual Credit 9 Creating Rigorous Early Postsecondary Opportunities for Students STEP 1 Identify the appropriate person at the school and/or district level who is able to identify and track dual enrollment and dual credit courses (e.g. school counselor, instructional supervisor).

10 Process for Reporting Dual Enrollment and Dual Credit 10 Creating Rigorous Early Postsecondary Opportunities for Students STEP 2 Compile a list of all dual enrollment and dual credit courses that includes the local class number/section, course code, and course type (dual enrollment, local dual credit, or statewide dual credit). o For the dual enrollment and local dual credit courses, also include the name of the postsecondary partner institution – this will be the university, community college, TN College of Applied Technology, or independent postsecondary institution where the student has the opportunity to earn credit.

11 Process for Reporting Dual Enrollment and Dual Credit 11 Creating Rigorous Early Postsecondary Opportunities for Students STEP 3 Provide information to the person responsible for entering course data. This person should have the list of dual enrollment and dual credit courses described in step one, as well as the definitions provided on the front side of this sheet.

12 Process for Reporting Dual Enrollment and Dual Credit 12 Creating Rigorous Early Postsecondary Opportunities for Students STEP 3 Choose the correct flag for the course– Dual Enrollment, Local Dual Credit, or Statewide Dual Credit. After flagging the course as Dual Enrollment or Local Dual Credit, the system will prompt you to enter the postsecondary partner institution.
