|SUBJECT / RECOMMENDATIONS|
|Approve Amendment #1 To The Dual Enrollment Articulation Agreement Between Hillsborough Community College and The School Board of Hillsborough County, FL (Workforce Connections)|
|On October 4, 2016, the School Board Approved Item C1.02, the Dual Enrollment Articulation Agreement Between Hillsborough Community College and The School Board of Hillsborough County, FL.
We are requesting approval of this Amendment, which will permit the students with an unweighted high school GPA of 2.50 or higher to be eligible to enroll in the Associate in Science Program for Engineering Technology or in the College Credit Certificate in Internet Services Technology Web Design Specialist – Designer.
This will provide additional Dual Enrollment opportunities for a broader group of students who would otherwise not have access to this acceleration option. Florida Statute Section 1007.271, establishes the student eligibility requirements for Dual Enrollment.
|• Improve the high school graduation rate • Provide a student-centered learning environment that engages every child|
|FINANCIAL IMPACT (Budgeted: No)|
|This agenda item has no financial impact to the district.|
|We will evaluate the program by the number of students participating at the end of the 2016/2017 2017/2018 school year and the number of students that enroll in and complete courses in the Associate in Science Program for Engineering Technology or in the College Credit Certificate in Internet Services Technology Web Design Specialist – Designer program.|
