In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Eighteen

 

AN ACT relative to dual and concurrent enrollment agreements between high schools and colleges and universities.

 

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

 

1  Dual and Concurrent Enrollment Program; Definitions.  Amend RSA 188-E:25, I to read as follows:

I.  "Concurrent enrollment'' means courses taught at the high school by high school teachers approved by the community college system of New Hampshire (CCSNH) or the university system of New Hampshire, in which high school students earn both high school and college or university credit while students are still attending high school or a career technical education center.

2  Dual and Concurrent Enrollment Program; Enrollment Requirements.  Amend RSA 188-E:27, I to read as follows:

I.  An interested high school student in grade 11 or 12 may enroll in a course that is designated by the CCSNH or the university system of New Hampshire as part of the dual and concurrent enrollment program.

3  Dual and Concurrent Enrollment Program; School Board Policy.  Amend RSA 188-E:28 to read as follows:

188-E:28  School Board Policy.

I.  No later than July 1, 2018, the school board of each school district shall develop and adopt a policy permitting students residing in the district who are in grade 11 or 12 to participate in the dual and concurrent enrollment program.  The policy shall, at a minimum, include compliance with measurable educational standards and criteria approved by the CCSNH and/or the university system of New Hampshire and that meet the same standard of quality and rigor as courses offered on campus by the CCSNH and/or the university system of New Hampshire.  The policy shall also comply with the standards for accreditation and program development established by the National Alliance for Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships.  The policy shall include, but not be limited to, student eligibility criteria, standards for course content, standards for faculty approval, program coordination and communication requirements, tuition and fees, textbooks and materials, course grading policy, data collection, maintenance, and security, revenue and expenditure reporting, and process for renewal of the agreement.

II.  The department of education and the CCSNH shall develop and approve a model dual and concurrent enrollment agreement that shall be used by the CCSNH and the school board of a school district participating in the dual and concurrent enrollment agreement program.  The model agreement shall include standards established by the CCSNH, shall include elements, standards, and criteria that have been approved by the department of education and CCSNH, and shall serve as the framework for the development, implementation, and administration of the dual and concurrent enrollment program in each school district by clearly defining the procedures related to concurrent and dual enrollment of high school students in college classes.  The department shall further develop guidelines for the program relating to reporting, accountability, and payment of available funds to the CCSNH.  

III.  The department of education and the university system of New Hampshire shall develop and approve a model dual and concurrent enrollment agreement that shall be used by the school board of a school district participating in the dual and concurrent enrollment agreement program.  The model agreement shall include standards established by the university system of New Hampshire, and shall include elements, standards, and criteria that have been approved by the department of education, and shall serve as the framework for the development, implementation, and administration of the dual and concurrent enrollment program in each school district by clearly defining the procedures related to concurrent and dual enrollment of high school students in college classes.

4  Effective Date.  This act shall take effect 60 days after its passage.
