Submitted article

Students in grades 6 through 11 are encouraged to attend an informational meeting regarding the College Credit Plus program at Washington Court House City Schools.

According to the district, the WCHCS Board of Education recognizes the value to students and to the district for students to participate in programs offered by accredited colleges and universities in Ohio.

Through the College Credit Plus program, eligible students can take a course and earn high school and college credit that appears on both their high school and college transcripts.

There is no cost to students to participate in the CCP program when the student is enrolled in a public college or university and earning both high school and college credit. Students choosing to enroll in a participating private college or university might incur costs, however students who qualify as economically disadvantaged who choose to attend a nonpublic college or university may be able to do so at no cost.

Students and families must attend an informational meeting in order to be eligible for the program. Meetings will be offered in both a virtual and in-person option for students and parents.

The virtual option will take place on Jan. 20 at 6 p.m. on Zoom. Families must register in advance for the meeting. The link can be found on the district’s website or by contacting the student’s counselor. The in-person meeting will take place on Feb. 2 at 6 p.m., at Liberty Hall.

All students planning to participate in the College Credit Plus program for the 2022-2023 school year must sign a letter of intent to participate by April 1.

For further information about the College Credit Plus program, students and families should contact the student’s counselor at 740-335-0291 for WMS and 740-636-4221 for WHS.
