Maximizing Students’ Postsecondary Credit Opportunities During High School
Students’ Postsecondary Credit Opportunities During High School Articulated Credit Transcripted Credit Secondary Career Technical Alignment Initiative (SCTAI) Statewide Articulated Agreement offering SCTAI courses Bilateral Agreement offering CTE content for local articulated credit
All secondary college credit opportunities are not the same Advanced Placement requires a third-party assessment, a score of 3 or above for guaranteed USO credit upon enrollment in a USO institution. Articulated Credit is not recognized on a student’s college transcript until that student subsequently enrolls in a college that is authorized to confer the particular credit. Transcripted Credit is recognized on the student’s college transcript upon successful completion of the college course. The high school student is enrolled at the college at the time the student is taking the college course.
Highlights of Ohio’s dual enrollment program This tool is meant to explain selected elements and principles of the College Credit Plus program. It is meant to provide guidance. It is not meant to represent the law in its entirety. Ohio Revised Code Chapter 3365 will govern this program as of its effective date of September 15, 2014.
College Credit Plus (CCP) CCP replaces Ohio’s Post-Secondary Enrollment Options program (PSEO) and all alternative dual enrollment programs previously governed by Ohio Revised Code Chapter 3365. Governor Kasich signed H.B. 487 into law on June 16, 2014. CCP program operational 2015/16 school year.
College Credit Plus REQUIRES TWO FUNDAMENTAL CONDITIONS: 1.Student must be enrolled in both college and high school. 2.Student to earn transcripted college and high school credit upon successful completion of the course.
CCP Participation All public districts and public institutions of higher education (IHE) must participate. All nonpublic secondary schools may participate. All nonpublic postsecondary schools may participate. No eligible public student may be denied participation through a public IHE.
Participating IHE Must… Annually Provide a professional development opportunity to all high school teachers who instruct a CCP course as an adjunct Conduct at least one observation of each section of each college course taught in high schools Assign an advisor to each CCP student Schedule at least one meeting of CCP student and advisor prior to institution’s effective no-fault course drop out date
Participating IHEs and Districts Must… Promote CCP opportunities on their websites Annually coordinate with each CCP program partner to present at least one dedicated CCP event to students and parents
CCP Courses Must… Be the same as those offered on campus (included in IHE course catalogue) Be nonsectarian and non-remedial Apply toward a degree or professional certificate Be taught by instructors who meet BOR’s academic credential requirements
CCP Pathway Requirements Each public high school must develop two pathway opportunities through CCP. o One where a student can earn 15 transcripted credits o One where a student can earn 30 transcripted credits Pathways must be developed in coordination with at least one partnering IHE. Pathways must be published as part of school district’s official course offerings.
CCP Pathway Expectations A “CCP Pathway” is a grouping of college courses and course sequences that total at least 15 and 30 college credit hours. A pathway may: o Be organized by a major or career path o Include various core courses required for a degree or professional certification by the college
CCP Funding STARTING HERE… Funding formulas based on per college credit hour basis Ceiling and Floor based on 83% of K-12 per-pupil foundation funding amount FY15 Example: Per-pupil foundation amount = $5,800 Ceiling = $160 ($5,800 / 30 X 83%) Floor = $40 ($160 X 25%) IHE and District are encouraged to negotiate local agreement within Floor and Ceiling. The default structure highlighted on the “Funding Scenarios” chart applies if no alternative agreement is negotiated.
CCP Funding NEGOTIATING AN AGREEMENT BELOW THE FLOOR REQUIRES… Chancellor approval; and The Chancellor must approve agreement for a per credit hour rate below the Floor, when the agreement complies with all other CCP program requirements.
*Non-chartered non-public high school and home instructed students receive ceiling ($160) per credit hour.
CCP Data CCP participation requires the collection and reporting of program data BOR will express CCP data requirements in Rules.
CCP and Early College High School Programs (ECHS) ECHS beginning operation after 2014-15 school year are subject to CCP requirements ECHSs existing during 2014-15 school year are grandfathered until 2015-16, or until satisfaction of current ECHS agreement, whichever is later CCP governs only portions of ECHS agreement that relate to conference of college credit
CCP Going Forward Rules will be in place February 2015. –Public comment –Public hearing (at least one) Rules will not restate the law Rules will: o Protect CCP integrity for study opportunity o Define procedures o Assist education partners with implementation
CCP Going Forward The Chancellor and State Superintendent will jointly establish a CCP Advisory Committee to… Assist in developing performance metrics Monitor the progress of the CCP program
