The Cherokee County School District invites students and parents who are interested in learning more about dual enrollment to the annual information nights coming up Nov. 7 and Nov. 11.
Georgia’s dual enrollment program allows students in grades 9-12 to earn high school and college credit simultaneously. Students do not pay for tuition, fees or books; they are only responsible for course-related fees and transportation.
Two information sessions are scheduled (each session will share the same information, parents and students can attend either one).
Nov. 7 in the Etowah High School Auditorium, 6565 Putnam Ford Road near Woodstock from 6-7 p.m.
Nov. 11 in the Sequoyah High School Auditorium, 4485 Hickory Road near Canton, from 6-7 p.m.
Details about the program can be found at www.cherokeek12.net/Content2/divisions-curriculum-mowr as well as the Georgia Department of Education site at www.gadoe.org/Curriculum-Instruction-and-Assessment/CTAE/Pages/Transition-Career-Partnerships.aspx.
Students who plan to participate in dual enrollment for the 2020-21 school year should be prepared to meet application deadlines in the early spring, as college admission deadlines vary.
