Post Secondary Enrollment Option
Students may receive credit that counts toward graduation requirements for successfully completed courses at community colleges, private colleges or state universities. It is the responsibility of the student to inform the building principal whether or not the PSEO course is to be counted for credit and therein become part of their cumulative grade point average. Ninth and tenth grade talented and gifted students and all students in grades eleven and twelve will be reimbursed for tuition and other costs directly related to one course up to $250 per semester.
Second semester seniors may be reimbursed for a maximum of two PSEO courses. Any additional PSEO classes must have prior approval of the Administration prior to reimbursement. Students who take a college course and receive less than a C will not be encouraged to take another with school financial support.
The school district pays only for courses which are not offered by the high school and which are offered during the regular school year by the community college, private college or state university. The school district does not pay for the costs of summer school classes. However, summer school classes taken independently by the student are eligible for credit.
Students who fail the course or fail to receive credit in the course paid for by the school district must reimburse the school district for all costs directly related to the course. Prior to enrolling in a course, students age 18 or over or the parents of students under age 18 shall sign a form indicating they are responsible for the costs of the course should the student fail the course or fail to receive credit for the course. The school district may waive the cost of the course for students who fail the course for reasons beyond their control, including, but not limited to, the student's incapacity, death in the family or a move to another school district.
