Discussion

Florida Statute 1007.271 requires a school board and college to enter into an inter-institutional articulation agreement to provide dual enrollment opportunities for eligible high school students.  The articulation agreement must be approved and submitted to the Florida Department of Education by August 1, 2022.

It is proposed that the School Board of Brevard County (SBBC) enter into a 1-year Dual Enrollment Articulation Agreement (for the 2022-2023 school year) with the District Board of Trustees for Eastern Florida State College (EFSC). The list of changes below highlights modifications made to the 2021-2022 agreement that are included in the proposed articulation agreement for 2022-2023.

Changes to the 2021-2022 Articulation Agreement between the SBBC and EFSC that are included in the proposed 2022-2023 Articulation Agreement:

ADDITIONS

If the CCC or CTC program cannot be completed due to course scheduling or availability, the student may designate the associated degree program as major with their school’s approval. (page 3)

Full time dual enrollment students are no longer eligible for dual enrollment upon completion of the spring term regardless of their high school graduation status. (page 4)

Prior to their initial registration, students must provide to their high school counselor the EFSC Student Parent Dual Enrollment Participation Agreement signed by the parent/guardian and student. (page 5)

On a case by case basis and with the approval of both institutions, an exception to the GPA requirement may be made for an individual student to dual enrollment in a College Credit Certificate or Career and Technical Certificate program offered at the high school.  The basis for the exception is the student’s demonstrated interest in the specific technical program and the student’s potential to successfully master the course content.
