2017 House Bill 4735: Revise high school “dual enrollment” detail
Introduced by Rep. Aaron Miller (R) on June 8, 2017 To revise a program that allows high school students to take a college course and get both college credits and high school graduation credit, with the cost paid by the state through the public school district, based on the average per-pupil state support to public schools. The bill would extend this to a student in a county on the state line who takes a course from a college in the other state, or a charter school student whose school is located less than 20 miles from the college.   Official Text and Analysis.
Referred to the House Education Reform Committee on June 8, 2017
