DUAL ENROLLMENT AGREEMENT WITH LACKAWANNA COLLEGE
The Towanda School District is pleased to announce the approval of a dual enrollment agreement with Lackawanna College for the 2019-20 school year. Dual Enrollment is an effort to encourage a broader range of students to experience post secondary coursework and its increased academic rigor, while still in the supportive environment of their local high school. This program allows school districts to partner with eligible post secondary institutions to offer high school students the chance to earn college credit while completing their high school requirements. The intent is to increase the number of students that go on to post secondary education and to decrease the need for remedial coursework at post secondary institutions.
One of the goals of dual enrollment is to allow students to formally enroll in a post secondary institution following high school graduation having already accumulated post secondary credits. Students that choose to participate in the program will receive secondary (High School) and post secondary (College) credit for the successful completion of the following dual enrollment courses at the rate at $100 per credit hour: Accounting I, Accelerated Physics, Accelerated PreCalculus, Accelerated Statistics, Accelerated English III, Anatomy/Physiology, Accelerated World History, AP Biology, AP Calculus, AP Chemistry, AP English, AP History, Spanish III or IV, Forensic Science, and Sociology/Psychology.
