10 C. Rationale for Expanding DE College Enrollment and Graduation Rates

11 C. Rationale for Expanding DE (continued) Lack of financial and social support is the major reason students leave school without completing a degree. 1.Most students leave college because they are working to support themselves and going to school at the same time. 2.Young people who fail to finish college are often going it alone financially. 3.Among students who don’t graduate, the college selection process is far more limited and often seems happenstance and uninformed. 4.Students who leave college realize that a diploma is an asset, but they may not fully recognize the impact dropping out of school will have on their future.

12 C. Rationale for Expanding DE (continued) Of the Virginia CTE completers who graduated in 2010, over 4,500 had taken dual enrollment courses, giving them a distinct advantage in completing an associate's degree. Dual enrollment is increasing in high schools across the state, and when the CTE completer data are released later this fall, it is expected that this number will rise.

13 D. Recommendations (continued) 1. More dual enrollment courses countywide. 2. Support for teachers through professional development and graduate coursework. 3. New pathways and course offerings.

14 D. Recommendations Expand the GCTAA Summer 2012 Academy to offer... Architecture/Construction Management Automotive Technology CyberSecurity Digital Photography Entrepreneurship Web-Based Computer Applications

15 E. Timeline / Schedule Fall 2011Develop new dual enrollment pathways and courses. Continue staff development for dual enrollment certification. Budget preparation and negotiation Winter 2012Align and develop dual enrolled course curricula. Review Program of Studies Spring 2012Finalize Recommendations for Program of studies Professional development for Summer Academy instructors Summer 2012Summer Academy Fall 2012Continuation Academy Late afternoon/evening offerings

16 Summary Dual Enrollment programs provide significant college experiences and college credits to current APS students. Dual Enrollment programs provide instructors that have important pedagogical skills for high school students. Dual Enrollment programs are currently in all high schools and high school programs. Expanding these programs increases opportunities for high school completion, college enrollment, and college success for all APS students.
