Dual Enrollment After Spring Break 2020

  • Dual Enrollment Students,

    As of today, we have the most recent information regarding Dual Enrollment students. Here is the update straight from the source, Dr. Southerland from CCC.

     

    • Dual enrollment students will not be given the option of an “Incomplete” grade because high school courses (including dual enrollment courses) cannot extend into the summer and there is no guarantee that the dual enrollment instructor will be able to help them complete the course requirements next year. Dual enrollment students will have three options:
      • Complete the college course outcomes by the end of spring semester and receive the earned letter grade.
      • Complete the college course outcomes by the end of spring semester and choose a “Satisfactory” grade instead of the earned letter grade (if they perform at a “C” level or better). **NOTE: A “Satisfactory” grade will not satisfy a course prerequisite when a grade of “B” or better is required.
      • Drop the college course for a full refund. No college credit will be earned, but the course will not appear on the student’s transcript.

    If you are doing assignments and planning to continue earning your grade, there is no change as far as what I have been communicating to you. Essentially, we are proceeding with earning grades based on work as we were, but through Google Classroom. Please read those options carefully, though.

    Other Important Updates:

    • At this time, I will not require the second reading, The Opposite of Loneliness, by Marina Keegan. I’m sorry if you have already purchased the book; I could not have anticipated this epidemic and I’m trying to make the best judgement call as to how we shorten our remaining objectives under the circumstances. If you do have the book, chances are you will like it and it may be a great read during this time of social distancing.
    • Our two final essays are the current essay in progress, the Research-Based Place Essay, and the final research paper which will be a top priority during the later weeks of April and most of May. (Stay tuned for those guidelines and focus on our current essay).
    • We will do the podcast analysis, but I might shorten it. This one tends to be an interesting and fun assignment. But then again, aren’t they all?
    • Right now, I’m trying to determine whether or not we will do the portfolio. Honestly, if we (meaning you) do a good job on these last few objectives, you will be more than prepared for success at the next level.
    • AS OF THIS WEEK, DUE DATES ARE BACK IN EFFECT. It was reasonable to give you some leeway last week. However, you need to turn in work on time to receive full credit. As a rule of thumb, I will not give any credit for work that is a week late.
