Lenawee Intermediate School District provides new program
The Lenawee Intermediate School District continually explores
ways to prepare LISD TECH Center students for college
readiness. A new program, College Now, provides
increased dual enrollment (college classes that are required to
obtain an associate’s degree in their CTE [Career Technical
Education] pathway) opportunities for students enrolled at the
LISD TECH Center.
There is no cost for these classes to the student, their family
or their school district. In order to qualify, LISD TECH Center
students must take the college course placement test and be
eligible to take 100-level coursework, parents and their student
must attend a College Now program orientation, and
students must be “soft skilled” licensed to ensure they are
ready to face the challenges of college coursework.
To maintain eligibility, students must meet the “soft skill “
requirements in the CTE* classroom (a 3.0 GPA in their CTE*
program and a 2.0 GPA in their college coursework), all the
college course work must directly apply to an associate’s
degree aligned to the students Educational Development Plan (EDP)
and Career Pathway and students must attend an advisory
appointment with both the LISD TECH Center representatives and a
college advisor every semester.
Students who participate in dual enrollment are more likely to
pursue a bachelor’s degree, have higher first semester college
grades and earn more credits during their first 3.5 years of
post secondary education.
