Minnesota State received notification December 19 that the Higher Learning Commission has approved its extension request relative to the credentialing of high school faculty teaching within concurrent enrollment programs.
“This decision is good for our school districts, teachers and students,” said MSBA Executive Director Kirk Schneidawind.
The approval gives each college or university within Minnesota State that offers concurrent enrollment programming the five additional years requested (until September 1, 2022) to ensure that all high school faculty teaching within concurrent enrollment programs meet qualifications for faculty providing dual credit instruction.
This extension applies not only to those high school faculty currently teaching within these programs, but also covers new faculty who may begin teaching within a concurrent enrollment program prior to September 1, 2022.
Effective September 1, 2022, all high school faculty teaching within concurrent enrollment programs will be required to meet qualification standards, as will all new faculty assigned to provide dual credit instruction for the first time after that date.
