School City of East Chicago
Bylaws & Policies


The Board recognizes the value to students and to the Corporation for students to participate in programs offered by accredited colleges and universities in Indiana.

The Board will allow students in grades 11 and 12 who meet the criteria to enroll in approved postsecondary programs while in attendance in the Corporation. Students will be eligible to receive dual credit or be provided dual enrollment programs that meet the educational objectives of the School Corporation and are offered by State educational institutions as defined in I.C. 20-12-0.5-1.

No student may participate, however, without the written consent of the high school principal or if such participation would delay his/her graduation from high school.

Postsecondary Credit

A State educational institution may establish a high school fast track to college programs that offer qualified students an opportunity to earn a high school diploma while earning credits for a degree. To be eligible to earn a high school diploma under this program, the student must be either: least nineteen (19) years of age and not enrolled in a school or; least seventeen (17) years of age and have consent from the principal of the high school most recently attended.

The School Corporation in which the student resides shall pay the tuition for high school level courses taken at the state educational institution each year the student is included in the School Corporation's ADM.

The Superintendent will establish the necessary administrative guidelines to ensure that eligibility criteria are clearly defined and properly communicated to both the students and the institutions offering such programs to students of this Corporation. The Superintendent will also establish guidelines and procedures for the awarding of credit and the proper entry on a student's transcript and other records of his/her participation in a postsecondary program.
