• Concurrent Enrollment Options Act

    The Concurrent/Postsecondary Enrollment Options Act, Iowa Code section 261C was enacted in 1987 to promote rigorous academic pursuits and to provide a wider variety of options to high school students by enabling eleventh and twelfth grade students to enroll part time in nonsectarian courses in eligible postsecondary institutions of higher learning in Iowa. A ninth or tenth grade student who is identified as a gifted and talented student according to the school district's criteria and procedures may now participate under this Act. Post-secondary courses are those that are not comparable to the courses offered at Durant High School.  A student pursuing a Concurrent/PSEO class must select a class that is not offered at DHS.  Student’s, who successfully completes and passes a Concurrent/PSEO class, will receive credit that may be applied toward high school graduation.

    *PSEO ONLY COURSES: The district will pay up to $250 for the cost of the class.  Any student not successfully passing a PSEO class will be required to reimburse the district the cost of the class. * 

    The parent or guardian shall furnish transportation to and from the post-secondary institution for the student enrolling.  More information regarding Concurrent/PSEO coursework and requirements may be obtained from the high school principal or guidance counselor.

    **PLEASE NOTE that these guidelines apply to ALL dual credit options:

    1. Courses taken during the summer do NOT qualify for reimbursement and will not be granted course completion.
    2. It is NOT DHS responsibility to provide any technology outside of the designated devise already offered to every student ie: iPad.
    3. Students who receives an F for a Concurrent/PSEO college course will NO longer be allowed to take further courses unless the following is completed: Students will have the opportunity to retake the course and ONLY the course for which they failed. The student must receive a grade no lower than a C in order to be allowed to take other courses. This will also affect eligibility in sports and co-curricular programs.
    4. College semester hours will be converted to DHS units according to this ratio: 3 MCC semester hours=1.0 DHS credits.
    5. Students enrolling in all dual credit courses must demonstrate proficiency in math, reading and science through Iowa Assessment test scores. For a college transfer course (AA Degree) the student must also pass the ACT test and meet the Math, Reading, and Writing placement requirements of the college.
    6. All textbooks must be kept clean and in good condition and will be returned to the high school at the end of the course or the student & parent will be billed the replacement cost of the textbook(s).
    7. All students will be responsible for any costs charged by the college not covered by the Senior Year Plus legislation.
    8. Students enrolling in a Current/PSEO courses must have a GPA of 2.75.
    9. Students may NOT take any Current/PSEO without taking the same corresponding course at Durant first.
    10. The deadlines for registration for Concurrent/PSEO courses are as follows: Fall semester: June 1st, Spring Semester December 19th. ALL paperwork must be completed accurately and submitted to Mrs. Badtram before or on these deadlines.
    11. Academy courses are offered at the community college, consist of a combination of concentrated courses in one vocational area. This program will occupy ½ of a student’s daily schedule. 
    12. Any and all College/Concurrent/PSEO classes will count towards a student’s Grade Point Average and eligibility status. 

     

    *Composition 1 and 2: Completion of Junior-Level High School English: Students must complete Durant High School 11th Grade English Class. That is 3 years of English. (Basically you can’t take these classes until your senior year)
