CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT REQUIREMENTS

Students wishing to take Concurrent Enrollment classes, formally called dual credit, will need to meet certain

requirements to be eligible to take these classes. First, students will need to be proficient in their latest Iowa

Assessment test. Second, students will need to take the WITCC entrance test. This test will be administered at

LCHS in the spring of this school year. Students who are not proficient or do not meet the WITCC entrance

requirements will not be allowed to take the Concurrent Enrollment classes.

The courses listed below will be offered as Concurrent Enrollment classes for the next school year. When taking a

concurrent enrollment class, students will be able to receive LCHS credit and college credit. The college credit

earned will be given by Western Iowa Tech Community College. Students will have to request a transcript from

WITCC to show the college credit. The high school credit will be reflected on your LCHS transcript. WITCC may

transfer to other educational institutions.

The tuition for the college credit will be paid by the school district to WITCC. Students are responsible for buying

the book. The school will provide a list of books with their ISBN’s. Students may pick this up in the office or they

can find it online in Mr. Iverson’s folder. Go t

STUDENT ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

Students are expected to understand these criteria prior to participation in any of the programs offered under this

chapter.

Students must meet any enrollment requirements established by a post-secondary institution providing

coursework under this chapter.

Students must meet or exceed the minimum performance measures on any academic assessment

required by the post-secondary institution.

Students must take the prerequisites, if any, established by the school district or post-secondary

institution.

Students must have attained the approval of the local school district board or its designee AND the post-

secondary institution in order to register for a course at the postsecondary level.

The student must be “proficient” in reading, math, and science as evidenced by the last administration of

the Iowa Assessment. If a student is not proficient in one or more of these content areas, the local board

may establish “alternative but equivalent” qualifying performance measures to meet this expectation.

These measures could include, but are not limited to, additional administrations of the state assessment,

assessments provided by the post-secondary institution (an assessment cut score should be provided by

the post-secondary institution to determine proficiency), portfolios of student work, student performance

rubrics, or end-of-course assessments. The determination of what is permissible in terms of alternate

assessments and equivalent performance lies with the local school district. The classes listed which have
