8 Other initiatives? CPS Early College initiatives will reach beyond dual enrollment: Dual Credit at High School: Students can take college classes taught at your high school (by your teachers who are certified as adjunct professors or outside adjunct professors). These credits can be transferred to most 4 year institutions and will also give them high school credit. Articulation Agreements: Provide college credit for classes currently being taught in the high school (such as a CTE course). The credit is school specific and earned once they enroll. Early College High Schools: Schools (such as the IBM schools) who offer students the opportunity to earn an associates degree while in high school News Story in the Tribune: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/education/ct-met-cps-vocational-school-1013-20111013,0,706993,print.story http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/education/ct-met-cps-vocational-school-1013-20111013,0,706993,print.story Summer Opportunities: Students can earn college credit over the summer in a variety of formats WHAT OPPORTUNITIES DO YOU WANT AT YOUR SCHOOL?
