5 Distance Learning East Allen County Schools is committed to offering the most rigorous curriculum and course offerings to our high school students while still remaining within our financial constraints. To that end, we offer to each of our high school students the opportunity to enroll in any East Allen County Schools high school course through Distance Learning. Students who want to participate in a Distance Learning course (an approved course not taught at their home school) will obtain approval from the building principal and enroll in the course through the guidance department. The method of instruction for these courses is video conferencing. Course offerings are subject to sufficient enrollment. Some Fine Arts and Family and Consumer Courses are not able to be taught through distance learning. Our mission is to inspire in all students a passion for learning while developing knowledge, skills, and character necessary to become responsible contributors to the local and global society. 5

The student s Graduation Plan (including four year course plan) is reviewed.

21 DUAL CREDIT WITH IVY TECH COMMUNITY COLLEGE - FORT WAYNE Ivy Tech Community College has partnered with East Allen County Schools (EACS) to offer students an opportunity to obtain Dual Credit which means eligible students are able to earn college credit while still in high school. EACS students have this opportunity for coursework taken and earned at Anthis Career Center and Woodlan Jr/Sr HS. Traditional Dual Credit is defined as simultaneously earning high school and Ivy Tech Community College credit for coursework taught by high school/career center faculty at the high school. Dual Credit coursework may be comprised of a single course or sequence of courses. While the student is in dual credit status, both the Career Center/High School credit and Ivy Tech credit are earned during the semester in which mastery of the subject matter is achieved. DUAL CREDIT AGREEMENTS via ANTHIS CAREER CENTER Academic School Year IVY TECH CREDITS AUTOBODY REPAIR/ AUTO COLLISION TECHNOLOGY 3 6 AUTOMOTIVE SERVICES TECHNOLOGY 3 15 CAREERS IN EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION * 3 6 CONSTRUCTION TRADES TECHNOLOGY 3 6 CRIMINAL JUSTICE PROGRAM * 3 CULINARY ARTS CAREERS * 3 6 FIRE SCIENCE PROGRAM 3 9 HEALTH CAREERS AND HEALTH OCCUPATIONS * 3 11 WELDING TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM (ECA Required) 3 * Dual Credit Courses Require Applicable PSAT/SAT/ACT Scores or College Assessment. DUAL CREDIT AGREEMENTS via WOODLAN Jr/Sr HS Academic School Year IVY TECH CREDITS ADVANCED MANUFACTURING PROGRAM COURSES (MSSC) 3 6 < Subject to Change or Revision per Dual Credit Agreement and MOU > ENROLLMENT Dual Credit students are to be enrolled at Ivy Tech as high school courses-only students. Students are eligible to earn Dual Credit for coursework completed while in grades, Enrollment for Dual Credit is not automatic upon enrollment in a high school course covered by a Dual Credit Agreement. EACS students must choose to enroll for the Dual Credit option, and must submit a completed and signed Ivy Tech High School-Based Dual Credit Application - Course Enrollment Form. Prior to registration, each Dual Credit student is responsible for meeting individual course prerequisite requirements/demonstrating college-ready in Reading, Writing, and Math. Students must earn a passing grade in the courses (or sequence of course, culminating in mastery), including all applicable prerequisite requirements, assessments, end of course outcomes, and special conditions to receive credit at Ivy Tech Community College. The academic grading system reflects the quality of performance and level of competency achieved by students who complete a dual credit course. Formal grades are assigned at the end of each enrollment period. Dual Credit instructors determine grades based on objective evaluation of students performance. College credit will be awarded upon notification from Ivy Tech Community College that the student has earned the required grade. TUITION EACS s students taking a dual credit course taught by an approved and credentialed High School or Anthis Career Center instructor are NOT charged tuition. TRANSFER OPTIONS Ivy Tech Community College credits may transfer; we advise you to check with the Admissions Office of the academic institution in question to determine which credits transfer. Visit for more details. CONTACT INFORMATION For additional information and questions, please contact Carroll s Guidance Office and/ or Ivy Tech Community College Dual Credit office at (260) or IVY LINE. Visit 21
