PECHS is the model school for College and Career
Readiness. Data from our first graduating class

college credit, 15/40 students (38) earned an
Associates Degree.

PCS CFCC Enrollment Data
273 students took CFCC courses last school year
The decline in enrollment for the Spring of 2012
was due to the January 1st implementation of the
Career and College Promise (CCP). Several CFCC
courses were no longer available to our students
on our high school campuses and some students did
not meet the new Accuplacer requirements for
certain courses.

CFCC courses.

NC Career College Promise
  • Offers NC high school students a clear path to
    success in college or in a career. The program is
    free to all students who maintain a B average
    and meet other eligibility requirements.
  • Gov. Bev Perdue's commitment to helping every
    qualified student gain access to an affordable
    college education. Through a partnership of the
    Department of Public Instruction, the N.C.
    Community College System, the University of North
    Carolina system and many independent colleges and
    universities, North Carolina is helping eligible
    high school students to begin earning college
    credit at a community college campus at no cost
    to them or their families. Three pathways offer
    students the opportunity to earn
  • College credit completely transferrable to all
    UNC System Institutions and many of North
    Carolina's Independent Colleges and Universities.
  • A credential, certificate or diploma in a
    technical career.
  • A high school diploma and two years of college
    credit in four to five years through innovative
    cooperative high schools (limited availability).
  • Effective January 1, 2012

  • PCS schools will continue to seek other options
    to offset textbook costs.
  • Students may purchase new or used textbooks. CFCC
    now has another option which is to rent college
    textbooks

CCP Implementation
  • How do we implement CCP and continue to increase
    college course offerings for all students at all
    high schools in Pender County?
  • Option 1 Implement Approved Calendar Waiver
  • Option 2 Implement a Modified Calendar Waiver
  • Option 3 Explore Other Options
  • Expand PECHS
  • Continue to work with CFCC to offer CFCC on high
    school campuses

18
Option 1 Implement Calendar Waiver

    calendar for a seamless transition for high
    school students taking college courses
  • Allows PCS high school early graduates to enroll
    in a college or university in January (Spring
    semester)
  • Increases the number and variety of college
    course offerings from 6 CFCC courses to 36.
    Allows more students to obtain college credit,
    not just the students who can navigate between
    two different calendars and/or not just the
    students who are interested in certain college
    courses at CFCC
  • Allows 14 additional days of instruction for AP
    courses
  • Allows traditional high schools to replicate the
    early college model on their campus
  • Cons

  • Requires some parents to navigate between 2
    school calendars if they have children in high
    school and elementary school or middle school
  • Requires some students who work in the summer to
    re-arrange their work schedules so that they may
    attend school

Option 2 Implement a Modified Calendar Waiver
  • Pros
  • Allows the 3 high schools to align with the CFCC
    calendar for a seamless transition for high
    school students taking college courses
  • Allows PCS high school early graduates to enroll
    in a college or university in January (Spring
    semester)
  • Increases the number and variety of college
    course offerings from 6 CFCC courses to 36.

Under Option 2 Modified Calendar Waiver, Spring
Break for the ES and MS would move to March
11-15th to align with the High School calendar.
23
History of Calendar Waiver
  • NC State Calendar Law enacted 2005-2006 (opening
    date shall not be before August 25th and closing
    date shall not be after June 10th)
  • PCS high school principals and district
    administrators have discussed the need for a
    calendar waiver at the high school level since
    2005-2006
  • High school principals are 100 in support of the
    calendar waiver
  • Increases college offerings for PCS students
  • Increases instructional time for AP courses
  • Ends 1st semester in December (EOC exams)
  • Positively impacts athletics (Football Soccer)

24
Option 3 Explore Other Options
  • Pros
  • Expand PECHS from a max enrollment of 250 to 300
    students
  • Collaborate with CFCC to increase course
    offerings on the high school campuses
  • Collaborate with CFCC to transport some students
    to the North campus.
  • Cons
  • Additional teacher positions _at_ PECHS
  • Additional transportation costs
  • Provides limited enrollment in CFCC courses for
    some students
  • The intent of CCP is for college classes to be
    held on college campuses, therefore any college
    classes offered on the high schools campuses will
    be based on CFCC instructor availability, not
    student need (Huskins 1998)
  • Students would be on 2 different school calendars
    (HS and College)

25
CCP Options Summary
  • Options 1 2 Allows for increased CFCC college
    offerings for our high school students
  • Option 3 Allows for limited CFCC college
    offerings for our high school students.
