Early College Credit/Start College Now Opportunities
The Early College Credit/Start College Now Programs allows public high school students who meet certain requirements to
take post secondary courses at a UW system college or university, a Wisconsin technical college, a Wisconsin private,
nonprofit college or university or a Wisconsin tribally-controlled college. ​Approved​ courses count toward high school
graduation and college credit.

The school board will determine if the college course can be taken for high school credit and is not comparable to a current
course offered by the district. The district will pay the cost of tuition and fees and the student will receive both high school
and college credit unless the student fails to complete or get a passing grade in the course. The high school credit will
count toward the student meeting high school graduation requirements needed to earn a high school diploma.

                                                      Eligibility
The Early College Credit/Start College Now Programs are available to public school students who meet these requirements:

❖ Have completed the 10​th​ grade (specific to Start College Now Program).
❖ To attend a technical college, students must be in good academic standing and have an acceptable disciplinary record.
❖ Apply to the postsecondary institution in the school semester prior to the one in which the pupil plans to attend the
  postsecondary course.
❖ Notify the school board of the pupil’s intention of enrolling in a postsecondary institution no later than ​March 1​ for a
  course to be taken in the fall semester; ​October 1​ for a course to be taken in the spring semester. See ​Forms You
  Need​ section below.
❖ Maintain satisfactory attendance and comply with the compulsory school attendance law under 118.15(1)(a) Wis. Stats.

                                                      Forms You Need:

An Early College Credit Program Agreement Form or Start College Now Application is used to notify the school board of a
pupil’s participation in the program(s). It may be obtained from the Kiel High School Counseling Office or the Wisconsin
Department of Public Instruction. Students will also need to complete the appropriate college admission steps after district
approval of courses.
                                                  Children with a Disability:

Students with a disability are encouraged to participate in the Early College Credit Program or Start College Now Program.
The school board may refuse to permit a pupil with a disability to attend a technical college if the cost would impose an
undue financial burden on the school district.

                                                Payment of Tuition and Fees:
The school board must pay for any course that is taken for high school credit and ​is not comparable​ to a course offered in
the school district. A pupil must pay for any postsecondary course taken that is comparable to a course offered at the
school district. A pupil must pay for a postsecondary course that is not used for high school credit.

The school board must pay for the cost of any books and fees for approved courses and materials for students
attending an IHE. ​The student is to return any books purchased by Kiel Area School District to the high school
counseling department​.

A student must pay for incidental college fees (parking permits) and for equipment, tools, supplies and
consumables (workbooks, notebooks, uniforms) which become property of the student.

                                                               6
The student will be required to reimburse the school district for tuition and fees if the student drops or fails the
course.

                                  Determining High School Credit/Comparability:
The school board determines whether a postsecondary course is eligible for high school credit, how much high school credit
may be awarded, and whether the course is comparable to a course offered at the school district.

                                                          Appeals:
A pupil may appeal a school board’s decision regarding awarding of high school credit/comparability of a postsecondary
course to the State Superintendent of Public Instruction within 30 days of receiving notification from the school district.

                                                       Transportation:
Parents or pupils are responsible for transportation between the school and the college. Transportation assistance is
available from the DPI for low-income parents (eligible for free/reduced lunch under the federal school lunch program).
Transportation costs may only be reimbursed if the pupil is taking a postsecondary course for high school credit. A claim for
transportation reimbursement is available from the Kiel High School Counseling Office or the DPI and must be submitted to
the DPI no later than 30 days after the end of the school semester to which the claim pertains. Students are to use the least
expensive, safe means of transportation possible.

Dual-Credit Opportunities
AP - Advanced Placement
AP is a program of college-level courses and exams that give high school students the opportunity to receive advanced placement
and/or credit in college. Teachers of AP classes may provide the course text, syllabus, and recommended list of readings for students
interested in starting course work during the summer or prior to the AP course beginning. If a student is doing college level work in high
school - in an AP or honors course, through independent study, AP examinations may be taken at the conclusion of the course work.
The score on the AP exam determines college credit and advanced placement in college. Check with individual college/university
requirements for credit or placement. For all UW schools, you can also check on the web at uwhelp.wisconsin.edu/admission/ap.asp

HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM PLANNING

                                             Selection of High School Courses
Students and parents are asked to carefully plan course selections each year. A student’s selection of courses should have direction
and purpose. Choosing classes with a definite goal in mind will better prepare the student for the future. Course selections should
reflect a student’s interests, abilities and goals. In summary, course selections should:

                                                  Course Selection Changes
Students will have a determined window of time after the initial scheduling process in which they can make course request
changes. Students will be informed of the window. Once the window closes, requests to CHANGE course selections must
meet the following guidelines:

General Guidelines for Class Schedule Changes:
1. Changes may be made upon recommendation of a teacher, principal, and/or a school counselor, in order to improve the overall
school schedule and/or to correct an inappropriate class placement.
2. Any change in a schedule must be initiated in time for a student to make the physical change in classes ​by the end of the first week
of the course​.

Guidelines for Requesting a Schedule Change​ shall be followed in changing class schedules to provide a procedure to meet specific
student needs:
1. Classes cannot be added or dropped beyond the first week of a term. Exceptions may be
   made if an online course is added to a student’s schedule.
2. Seniors must maintain at least 6 credits; all other students must maintain 8 credits.
3. The following are allowable reasons for requesting a schedule change:
         A. Mistake on a schedule – having a class that you didn’t sign up for, missing a required
             class, two classes scheduled at the same time, unbalanced schedule etc.
         B. Inappropriate class placement – not having the necessary prerequisites for a class, or
             the teacher and counselor recommend a change to correct an inappropriate class
             placement.
         C. Change in post-secondary plans (​seniors only​) – Schedule changes to accommodate
             changes in postsecondary plans will only be permitted in order to ADD a specific
             course or courses necessary to support those plans.
         D. Students cannot repeat a course they have passed to receive additional credit.

Students will not be allowed to drop a class for reasons related to academic performance (unless the teacher of the course
determines that there was an inappropriate class placement).

                                                                   11
Full Credit Class Schedule Changes​ A student who is registered for a full credit class is expected to continue the class until completion.
Exceptions will be made ONLY when a teacher and school counselor intervenes to correct an inappropriate class placement.

Course Selection Changes - continued

Procedures for Adding or Dropping a Class
1. Classes may not be added after the first week into a course. (exception: an online course)
2. Classes may be dropped up to 1 week into the course and the student will be granted a “withdrawal” without penalty. ​Any classes
dropped AFTER the first week of the course will result in the student receiving an end of semester grade of “W/F” for that
class​.
3. Any student wishing to drop a class must obtain written permission from a parent/guardian. An Add/Drop form will be issued by a
school counselor, and must be returned to the School Counseling Office with the appropriate parent and teacher signatures before any
 schedule changes will be made.

                                                                   12
Four Year University/College Course Requirements and Recommendations
Requirements for admission into four year colleges or universities vary according to the specific school. The University of Wisconsin
System and Wisconsin Independent Colleges and Universities recommends specific course selections to prepare the college bound
student. ​The ​minimum​ course selections include 17 high school credits:

         English                    4 credits

         Math                       3 credits         Algebra, Geometry and Algebra 2

         Social Studies             3 credits

         Natural Science            3 credits         2 credits must be lab science

Additional 4 credits​ may be chosen from English, mathematics, natural science, social science/history, foreign language, fine arts,
computer science and other academic areas. Two years of a single foreign language is required for admission to UW-Madison and
strongly recommended at other colleges/universities.

Students are encouraged to exceed the minimum number of college preparatory credits required for admission.​ Strong
academic preparation for college helps to ensure success. Students who choose a rigorous high school curriculum including senior
year coursework are more successful in college. Colleges with highly selective admissions standards recommend four credits or more
in academic areas.

Wisconsin Technical Colleges
​

Wisconsin Technical Colleges provide education and training in over 500 different specific career areas. Acceptance into technical
colleges in Wisconsin requires a high school diploma, HSED or GED certificate. Technical colleges do not require the same types of
courses required for admission into four year colleges. If planning to attend a technical college program of study, it is recommended to
take as many high school courses as possible that are related to the student’s career choice.

Laude Program
​

A student can receive laude recognition by multiplying the number of advanced, transcripted or advanced placement courses by their
individual cumulative grade point average. Students must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.4 to qualify for the
program. The three levels of designation are cum laude, magna cum laude and summa cum laude. The following pages contain
detailed information on Kiel High School’s laude program.

​RECOMMENDED ELECTIVES FOR CAREER CLUSTERS
The United States Department of Education divided the world of work into 16 groupings of occupations called Career Clusters. The
groupings are based on common knowledge, skills and abilities required for success in a career cluster. Each career cluster is divided
into career pathways because of the diversity and number of occupations within the career cluster. Career pathways are grouped by
similar knowledge and skills required of occupations in the career field. Additional information can be found at:

 Government and Public Administration
 Government affects Americans in countless ways. In a democratic society, government is the means of expressing the public will. This
 includes a variety of activities. In fact, virtually every occupation can be found within government. There are, however, some activities
 that are unique to government. The federal government defends us from foreign aggression; represents American interests abroad;
 deliberates, passes and enforces laws; and administers many different programs.

 State and local governments pass laws or ordinances and provide vital services to constituents. There are many opportunities in
 government in every career area. The Government and Public Administration Career Cluster focuses on those careers that are unique
 to government and not contained in another Career Cluster.
