See your counselor for current year foundation allowance. For the 2021-22 school year, the maximum amount allowed for all expenses excluding transportation related to the course is $684.50. If charges exceed such payment the student and his/her parents are responsible for the remaining charges.
5. Agree to repay the district the tuition fees paid on the student’s behalf by the District if the student drops the course, as quoted here: "If a student participating in the postsecondary (dual) enrollment program fails to successfully complete an eligible course, the student and his/her parents are responsible for reimbursing the District for such charges incurred by the District for such enrollment or direct payment to the institution. In the event reimbursement is not made in a reasonable period of time, the Superintendent is authorized to file claim against the student and/or his/her parents in Small Claims Court for collection." Note: The student will not be permitted to enroll in a replacement class at CHS unless this reimbursement has been received.
6. Understand that it is the student’s responsibility to provide a copy of the official grade (transcript from the college or university) to the Student Services office by June 1st in order for the grade and credit to be included on the student’s transcript for the school year. Seniors should have all dual Enrollment grades turned into their counselors by the Friday prior to graduation.
