All Students Ready: A Process and Outcome Evaluation of the Region 9 Dual Credit Program Columbiana, Stark and Wayne Counties under House Bill 115
Rochford, Joseph A.; Gelb, Adele
Stark Education Partnership
In Ohio, and in Stark, Wayne and Columbiana County communities, there is a growing realization that students must not only complete high school but also pursue some form of postsecondary education to be successful in the workplace of today and tomorrow. Since 1989, there has been a program for students presenting the opportunity of taking college coursework while still in high school. An option of this program has also involved dual credit. Known as the Post Secondary Enrollment Option (PSEO) the intent of the original law unfortunately was never clear. The opportunity for Columbiana, Stark and Wayne Counties to seek the answer to some of their questions came about with the passage of HB 115 in 2006 which appropriated $3.6 million in FY 2007 to support implementation of the Ohio Core Program through contracted instruction with institutions of higher education in mathematics, science, or foreign language for high school students that results in dual high school and college credit. One of the researchers has both served on the state level sub-committee and participated in many of the meetings and discussions between the Region 9 partners. The first part of this paper presents an assessment/diagnosis of that process, what it accomplished, and the issues raised for future consideration within the region. A corresponding outcome evaluation (part two) was conducted with the assistance of Adele Gelb. Appended are: (1) List of Participants; and (2) Questionnaires. (Contains 27 footnotes.)
