Covington High School will hold an informational meeting Thursday, Feb. 13, at 5:30 p.m. in the CHS cafeteria to discuss new dual enrollment opportunities for the 2014-2015 school year.
According to Marcus Heaston, principal at CHS, dual enrollment is a program that gives high school students the opportunity to take up to 18
hours of tuition – waived college courses while still in high school. The courses will count as both high school credit and college credit.
“I’m excited to have this partnership with Dyersburg State Community College, the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) in conjunction with the South Central Tennessee Workforce Alliance and the State of Tennessee Department of Labor and the Regional Economic Development Initiative (REDI),” said Heaston.
“These partnerships will help fund the program and also give our students an opportunity to better prepared for college and career readiness. We are committed to offer every student at CHS a competitive advantage, so that they may compete in both the local and global marketplace.”
Dyersburg State Community College, University of Tennessee at Martin, and REDI will have representatives on hand to answer and discuss any questions.
In case of inclement weather, the meeting will be rescheduled to a date in the near future.
