LCSC faculty who partner with high school teachers to develop courses delivered in the high schools are the foundation of the Dual Credit Program. It is through their curriculum oversight, mentoring, and support that program quality and academic rigor are maintained at a college level.
High school instructors teaching courses through the Dual Credit Program must meet the academic requirements for faculty teaching at LCSC as stipulated by the respective instructional divisions. Academic qualifications vary depending on the discipline, meaning each department sets its own standards for selecting dual credit affiliates.
College faculty, high school faculty, and courses offered for dual credit must comply with both the Idaho State Board of Education standards and National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) standards that govern Dual Credit Programs. LCSC faculty and high school faculty must also have the approval of their administration before engaging in any dual credit partnerships.
1. Provide orientation and training to new teachers prior to the start of a new dual credit course.
2. Conduct classroom observations.
3. Provide professional development and continued support for teachers.
At the end of the academic year, all Faculty Liaisons must submit a final report to both the Division Chair and Dual Credit Program for each course overseen. This report includes the Course Observation Form. No payment will be made to faculty prior to the report being submitted satisfactorily.
The report MUST use the following document templates.
Email both documents to email@example.com no later than May 25th.
