Learn how to navigate the opportunities and challenges for California Community Colleges and secondary school partners to better serve underrepresented students.
This session is designed for secondary and post-secondary partners who will help shape the agenda by noting key questions they have about dual enrollment implementation. Information shared will be designed to support the development of new and the scaling up and strengthening of existing partnerships with a focus on students from underrepresented groups. Participants will:
- Learn about relevant research
- Discuss implementation challenges and barriers
- Share promising practices and models
- Review legislative guidelines
Small group activities will provide an opportunity to identify ways to accelerate students' academic outcomes and to ensure legislative compliance. Special attention will be paid to similarities and differences for AB 288 College and Career Access Pathways (CCAP), and non-AB 288 partnerships. CCAP supports community college and school district partnerships to create seamless pathways from high school to community college as part of their college and career readiness efforts, even for students who may be struggling academically. Non-AB 288 partnerships are guided by previous legislation that allows high school students who have been shown to benefit from advanced scholastic or vocational work to enroll in commmunity college courses with parental permission.
