WSPTA seeks amendment to benefit parents and students on College in the High School

HB 1302 would allow 9th graders to earn college credit for taking a College in the High School course. Currently, 9th graders may take the course but aren’t eligible to earn college credit. This bill would change this. After reviewing, WSPTA decided to ask for two amendments to strengthen the bill regarding notification, clear guidance in the course catalog, and how to get the college credit. Hear WSPTA Advocacy Committee member Natalya Yudkovski testify in the House Education Committee.
