“HB 5 requires school districts to partner with at least one institution of higher education (IHE) to develop and provide college preparatory courses in math and ELA. These courses must be designed for 12th grade students who have yet to demonstrate college readiness. Students graduating under the foundation high school program, who successfully complete the math or ELA college preparatory course, may use the credit to satisfy advanced content-area credit requirements for graduation. Students who successfully complete the course are granted an exemption to TSI in the corresponding content area at the partnering institution. The college preparatory courses outlined in HB 5 must be made available to students 2014-2015 school year.”
