hsbeth Posted August 20, 2012 Share Posted August 20, 2012 The recent changes this year have me a bit confused. Those of you with high school students, are you planning to do only the minimum annual reporting or are you going to continue to report monthly? I've got one dd who currently holds a permit and will test for her DL this year and another child who will be eligible for her permit in December. I'm slightly concerned that there will be snags with this new reporting system. How will DDS keep tabs on attendance if reporting is only done annually? Thoughts? Also, I was unaware until this week that the requirement for the Accel program (dual enrollment) had been changed. The definition of eligible student/school has been broadened to allow students in non-accredited programs to participate and receive funding equal to those in other settings. Apparently this changed happened back in May. We were set up to participate in dual enrollment via an accredited umbrella program, but I'm now re-thinking that. During my research this weekend I also noticed that most colleges and universities have not updated their information about dual enrollment and accel to explain these changes. I did confirm via phone on Friday that our local uni. is aware of the guideline changes and that home school students who are unaffiliated will be welcome and should be able to access Accel funding via the paper application. Also, that it was not too late to make such a change for the fall semester although classes start today. Another noteworthy change to Accel is that hours funded will no longer be deducted from the available Hope hours as of spring 2102 semester. This makes dual enrollment an even better deal! Thought I'd share this info. as a PSA and wonder if I'm the only one who's been under a rock and unaware of the changes with dual enrollment and Accel?!?
