VHS students are not limited to taking only the CCP courses offered on-site. Students may also participate in CCP on-line, or at any other participating institution of higher education. Likewise, students may be concurrently enrolled in, and taking courses from, multiple post-secondary institutions (ex BGSU- Firelands).
For eligible students electing to participate in CCP off-campus, transportation is not provided by the school district, nor are reimbursement costs for transportation, such as mileage. Transportation and associated costs are the sole responsibility of the student and his or her parents/guardian.
CCP courses taken from public institutions of higher education are offered to eligible students cost-free. However, earning a grade of an "F" in a CCP course, or failure to complete the course, other than for reasons generally accepted by the school district, will result in all financial obligations of the course defaulting to the students and his or her parents/guardian.
A student who enrolls in CCP courses at a nonpublic institution of higher education, and who is not economically disadvantaged, may have to pay course fees and associated costs.
Final grades earned in all CCP courses will post to the high school transcript and will be included in the calculation of grade point average.
In order to participate in this academic opportunity, parents and students must attend a mandatory information meeting regarding enrolling in CCP. Similarly, a student must participate in a counseling session prior to his or her participation in CCP.
A student or his or her parents/guardian must inform the VHS counseling office by April 1 of the student's intent to participate in this program during the following school year. This deadline is state-mandated.
