The Okaloosa Walton Community College Charter High School: A Charter School of the Okaloosa School District.
Okaloosa-Walton Community Coll., Niceville, FL.
The Okaloosa-Walton Community College (OWCC) proposes a Charter High School that will allow college-level study for serious high school students. The combined high school and college educational programs will enable students to complete a high school diploma and an associate degree simultaneously in either academic transfer or technical education options. The program will apply varied instructional delivery and learning styles, a technology-across-the-curriculum approach, and incorporation of an integrated academic seminar series at each grade level. The four educational principles on which the school is based are: (1) students should develop the capacity to think critically, solve problems, and communicate effectively through a mastery of academic courses with emphasis on language and mathematics; (2) students should learn about themselves, their heritage, and the interdependent world through academic courses; (3) students should prepare for further education and work through elective academic and technical courses; and (4) students should learn to fulfill their civic obligations through school and community service. The school will offer 120 high school classes, 34 associate degree options, and will meet the transfer prerequisites of over 200 bachelors degree programs. The report contains 16 attachments, including organizational structure and job descriptions, a 3-year budget, and high school credit course offerings. (NB)
