Students are able to take college level courses to count both for college and high school credit through the DPS Concurrent Enrollment Program. DPS will reimburse a student for classes taken through Concurrent Enrollment up to the community college rate. An example of Concurrent Enrollment would be taking a college level math course and having it also count for a year of high school math.
HS counselors will hold an informational meeting about Concurrent Enrollment on Monday, October 13, 2015 at 7:35 am and again at 2:45 pm in the Counseling Center Conference Room.
They will hold a second round of these meetings on March 3, 2016 at 7:35 am and 2:45 pm in the Counseling Center Conference Room
