The Colorado Career Cluster Model provides a framework for integrated academic and career planning. It provides students with a relevant context to link their school-based learning with the knowledge and skills required to meet their own personal career goals. For more information, please visit http://www.coloradostateplan.com/
A Plan of Study is a coherent, articulated sequence of rigorous academic and career-related courses beginning in the ninth grade and leading to an industry-recognized certificate or licensure, and/or an associate or baccalaureate degree and beyond. It provides a "road map" to a student's career goals. Plans are flexible, allowing students to explore and update a plan of study. A Plan of Study highlights secondary to postsecondary linkages allowing for seamless transition to further education. Below is a general Plan of Study for each LPS CTE program.
Littleton Plans of Study
High School students in grades 11-12 must demonstrate the academic ability and meet the necessary prerequisites to take concurrent enrollment classes. Students receive both high school credit and college credit when taking concurrent enrollment classes. Students begin building a college transcript while they complete their high school graduation requirements. Students must receive a grade of C or better to receive college credit.
Concurrent enrollment creates options for students still in high school. It prepares students for the rigor and culture of college. Students build a college transcript while still in high school. Students may transfer their college credits to any two- or four-year college or university. Check with the accepting institution for credit acceptance.
Tuition is paid by Littleton Public Schools and the College Opportunity Fund. Students are responsible for any textbook or fees associated with the class.
All students taking concurrent enrollment classes must apply for COF. The COF stipend pays a portion of a student's tuition. All students must complete the COF application at http://cof.college-assist.org.
LPS offers two different models of Concurrent Enrollment:
(1) Each of our high schools offer Concurrent Enrollment classes at the high school - see your school course guide for more information.
(2) Junior and senior students can elect to take a concurrent enrollment class at the college. Informational meetings are held at each school in the fall and spring and Concurrent Enrollment agreement forms are distributed.
