Creating Equal Access to Dual Enrollment & Advanced Placement

Glens II (Lower Level)
18 January
Time:  3:00 pm - 4:15 pm
Location:  Glens II (Lower Level)

54 percent of Michigan counties do not have a college main campus, and unfortunately, more than 35 percent of Michigan public high schools offer no Advanced Placement courses. Even for schools near a college or university, students experience barriers in the form of transportation, scheduling, or affordability. In this session, we’ll explore how online learning and creative partnerships help to level the playing field for students lacking access to accelerated learning opportunities through their local district. Listen in as Principal JoLynn Clark from Frankenmuth High School creates pathways for students to pursue a college degree and acclimate to the rigor of college-level learning.
