FAQs

Will IASD teachers assign additional assignments (portfolios, projects, assessments, etc) to the students in the class who are taking it for CHS credit?

  • Generally, no. There may be an occasional exception which would be communicated to the parents by the IASD teacher.

 

What grading scale will my child be held to; the college or IASHS?

  • Each student will be held to the IASD standard grading policy regardless of enrollment in a CHS course or not.

 

If I have questions, who should I contact?

  • While it is certainly appropriate for students to meet with their school counselors, questions about the CHS program should be directed to Mr. Bob Rizzo at (724) 463-8713 or rrizzo@iasd.cc

 

How will I know if the CHS credits will apply to the university/college my child plans to attend?

  • Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) created a site to help parents understand how credits can transfer from university to university which includes high school CHS courses (also referred to as Dual Enrollment courses).
