Agenda Item #16
2015-2017 Inter-institutional Dual Enrollment Articulation Agreement with Eastern Florida State College
Florida Statute 1007.271 requires a school board and college to enter into an inter-institutional articulation agreement to provide dual enrollment opportunities for eligible high school students. The articulation agreement must be approved and submitted to the Florida Department of Education by August 1, 2015.
It is proposed that The School Board of Brevard County (SBBC) enter into a 2-year Dual Enrollment Articulation Agreement (for the 2015-2017 school years) with the District Board of Trustees for Eastern Florida State College (EFSC). The list of changes below highlights modifications made to the 2014-2015 agreement that are included in the proposed articulation agreement for 2015-2017.
Changes to the 2014-15 Articulation Agreement between the SBBC and EFSC that are Included in the Proposed 2015-17 Articulation Agreement.
Addition of the following:
Based on FY15 dual enrollment tuition costs, it is estimated that funding in the amount of $2,590,000 will be needed for payment of dual enrollment tuition costs for FY16. We anticipate a similar amount will be needed for FY17. This amount may vary for FY16 and FY17 based on the number of students that register for dual enrollment courses. Currently $2,000,000 is budgeted for dual enrollment.
A copy of the proposed Dual Enrollment Articulation Agreement for 2015-2017 is attached below for your review.
