Description

As school district throughout the country expand dual enrollment and career pathway programs, they faced with an enormous challenge of staffing dual credit classes. Using college professors to offer these courses can be costly, but most districts don’t have enough staff with the graduate credentials to serve as college adjuncts, which has an impact on the district’s ability to offer those courses.   This will webinar will explore strategies that are being used in Denver Public Schools (CO) and Mounds View Public Schools (MN) to deal with these challenges by upskilling current high school teachers, in partnership with two-year and four-year colleges.
