Community College partners with schools
Kiwanis members met Wednesday at Cazadores Mexican Restaurant.
Doug Heerey introduced guest speaker Amy Kjellin, Director of Butler Community College.
Kjellin spoke to members about what is available for high school students through Butler. Butler Community College is partnering with school districts to allow high school students a chance to get a jump-start on college while in high school.
Qualified students can start taking college courses as early as their sophomore year. High School students must take placement tests or have ACT scores. They can also factor in High School GPA to qualify for classes.
All courses recommended are part of the Guaranteed Statewide Articulation Agreement with KBOR. These classes will transfer to any public school in the state of Kansas. Most transfer anywhere.
Kjellin said students approved to take college classes will receive a tuition waver for a list of 10 general education classes.
High school students can take these classes and only pay the student fee and textbook costs.
