In May 2009, the Colorado State Legislature passed House Bill 09-1319 and Senate Bill 09-285, the Concurrent Enrollment Programs Act. The collective intent is to broaden access to and improve the quality of concurrent enrollment programs, improve coordination between institutions of secondary education and institutions of higher education and ensure financial transparency and accountability. Beyond coordinating and clarifying the existing concurrent enrollment programs, the bill also creates the “5th year” ASCENT program for students retained by the high school for instruction beyond the senior year. For questions about Concurrent Enrollment or ASCENT, please contact Michelle Camacho Liu at 303-866-6596 or email@example.com.
In order for your district or charter school to participate in ASCENT for the 2014-15 academic year, please provide an initial number of ASCENT slots by February 1st, 2014.
