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 to http://www.lemars.k12.ia.us/webfiles/miverson .

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
