Problems For High School Students Who Wanted To Take College Courses

High school students who planned on taking classes at Pitt Community College as part of the dual enrollment program now may not be able to.

As part of the proposed state budget plan Pitt Community College would not receive the funding it needs to allow high school students to continue to take certain classes at their college.

Around 600 students received a letter within the past few weeks telling them of the issue.

Pamela Hilbert who is Vice President of academic affairs at the college said they wanted parents and students to be aware of what was going on.

Hilbert says they are still waiting to see the final verdict. But right now they're expecting to have to make some changes.

    Amanda, Would you mind telling us where you go to school? Your school's counselor needs to help you invest in a Franklin Spell Device. Would be a great investment!

    It's people like amanda that the government will pay to go to school, doubt she will learn anything.

    Amanda, It sounds to me that you dropped out of school WAY TO EARLY, or you really did not get the education that you need or needed to be successful in life. The attitude of comments that you are making is really showing your smarts(NOT). Get back in school even IF you have graduated because you missed alot.

    Please get Amanda some help....Maybe if school was not so stupid, she could learn how to spell. This blog is about the state cutting out a program that is vital to the rural school systems. These smaller schools cannot keep up without this connection to the community colleges. It has nothing to do with a 'senior project'. You have to take atleast 4 classes at your high school and 2 to 4 at the college (like honors or advanced.) All requirements to graduate are the same. It just offers a chance to take classes that your high school doesn't offer.

    Sadly its the same situation here in Onslow for Coastal Carolina Commuinty College. The county is only funding math, science, & computer classes ( none of which I can take) Hopefully next semster will be better. But on the plus side, it opens up the door for me to take AP World History online =)
