Online College Credit Options for High School Students
How do I access these courses:
Students in grades 9-12 can request courses not currently offered at the high school through ECCP (Early College Credit Program). The deadline for Spring and Summer courses is Oct 1st and the deadline for Fall courses is March 1. Paperwork is available on the district website. Students need to plan far in advance. Completed requests are submitted to the student services assistant in your school and approved by the School Board.
Students can register and pay for the courses on their own if they’ve missed the deadlines for ECCP. If students plan on requesting that the course get added to their transcript and count towards elective credits they must go through the Outside Course Request Process. The request and approval should be made prior to taking the course. Requests are submitted to your high school counselor and approved by the High School Principal.
