Dear parents and guardians,
Beginning in the 2015-2016 school year, the Ohio Department of Education will begin the College Credit Plus program for all students enrolled in Ohio schools. College Credit Plus has two fundamental positions:
- Student must be enrolled in both college and high school.
- Students can earn transcripted college and high school credit upon successful completion of the course.
College Credit Plus will be replacing Post- Secondary Education options and the Dual Enrollment program for the 2015-2016 school year and beyond.
Eligible students may need a qualifying college entrance exam score that places them in courses ABOVE a remediation level to participate. For example, students interested in attending Northwest State must test into College Algebra or higher. Any math lower than College Algebra would indicate the student is not "college ready" and that student would be ineligible to participate in CCP until the appropriate scores were obtained.
On March 11, 2015 at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center, principals and counselors from Lincolnview, Crestview, and Van Wert City Schools, as well as local college representatives will be hosting an informational meeting for parents/guardians beginning at 6:30 p.m. This meeting will consist of a general session giving more information on College Credit Plus, then each individual school district will have an opportunity to discuss more information and to answer any potential questions.
For more information on College Credit Plus you can check out the website at https://www.ohiohighered.org/college_credit_plus

If you have a student who might be interested in accumulating college credit during their time at Lincolnview, please plan on attending the meeting on March 11. As always, feel free to contact me with further questions.
