The Indiana Area School District is pleased to announce that the District will cover the costs of tuition for students who wish to participate in the dual enrollment program for the 2022-2023 school year. The funding is made available through the Commonwealth’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program and the local businesses and organizations that have donated the funds to the District through that program.
Over the last four years, the Board of School Directors and district officials have worked tirelessly to build a collaborative and productive partnership with respected friends, parents, and colleagues in higher education in order to provide students with a pathway to success.
There is strong evidence that college in high school programs like dual enrollment, concurrent enrollment, and early college in high school, improve college transitions, persistence, and completion. There is also a growing body of evidence from states across the country that college in high school programs save money, not only for the students who participate in them but also for the states that make investments in expanding access to these programs. With this in mind, the IASD Board of Directors is pleased to do its part to invest in our Commonwealth, our community, our students, and our future workforce.
“I am excited about the work we are collectively and collaboratively doing to help provide our students with hope and opportunity. I am proud of the leadership displayed by the IASD Board of Directors to provide increased programming opportunities for our students and families in Indiana at little to no cost,” noted Michael Vuckovich, Superintendent.
