Agenda Item #47


Title
Articulation Agreement with Florida Institute of Technology (FIT)

Discussion

Brevard Public Schools does not currently have an articulation agreement in place with the Florida Institute of Technology (FIT).  In order to give high school students in Brevard Public Schools an opportunity to earn college credit at FIT that can be used towards a four-year degree at FIT or another post-secondary institution, the attached articulation agreement must be ratified.



Recommendation

Approve the articulation agreement between Florida Institute of Technology (FIT) and the School Board of Brevard County for dual enrollment.
