An agreement between South Tama High School and the Iowa Valley Community College District for contracted courses which allow high school students to earn college credit was approved on Monday night, Aug. 18, by the STC School Board.

The program will be made available to all eligible resident students in grades 9 through 12.

To qualify for dual credit Arts and Science coursework, the student must have either demonstrated proficiency (41 percentile) in all of the content areas of reading, mathematics and science as evidenced by achievement scores on the most recent administration of the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) or the Iowa Test of Educational Development (ITED) for which scores are available for the student or met the school district board approved alternative assessment.

In order to be offered each course must have an enrollment of at least ten students and provided, further, that if the enrollment is less than 10 students and the school district still wishes to proceed with the course, the school district will reimburse the college for the difference between the tuition revenues paid to the College, the sum of $130 per credit per student for non Internet coursework and $141 per credit per student for Internet coursework and for Welding program courses, $199 per credit student.
