AN ACT TO EXPAND ACADEMIC TRANSITION PATHWAY OPTIONS AND TO PERMIT ENROLLMENT IN COLLEGE COURSES AS PART OF A COLLEGE TRANSFER PATHWAY FOR CERTAIN FRESHMAN AND SOPHOMORE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS, AND TO REQUIRE THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION TO INCLUDE CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS AS QUALIFIED TO CONTRACT AS ADJUNCT INSTRUCTORS WITH LOCAL BOARDS OF EDUCATION FOR CAREER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS.
Senate committee substitute to the 1st edition makes the following changes. Deletes the proposed changes to GS 115D-20(4)a., and instead amends that same provision to also allow local community colleges, subject to approval of the State Board of Community Colleges, to collaborate with local school administrative units to offer courses through (1) academic transition pathways for qualified junior and senior high school students that lead to a career technical education certificate, diploma, or State- or industry-recognized credential and academic transition pathways for qualified freshmen and sophomore high school students that lead to a career technical education certificate or diploma in construction and (2) college transfer certificates requiring the successful completion of 30 semester credit hours of transfer courses, including English and math, for qualified freshman and sophomore high school students determined to be academically gifted, who have demonstrated a readiness for the course material, and have the maturity to justify admission to the community college.
