Many college bound high
school students require
remedial work
• Majority of students from
CPS are college bound.
• Majority of CPS students
coming to CCC require
remediation.
• Growing majority of jobs
require post-secondary
education.
• Over the past ten years,
early college existed at
both CPS and CCC as
separate entities.
• Goal: To create a
sustainable and
predictable early college
program that benefits high
schools and CCC.

Benefits
Four Positives from Early
College Initiatives
1. High school students with
college credit are more likely
to persist and graduate.
2. Early college students will
not require remediation.
3. CCC has a growing body of
transfer agreements that
could retain students.
4. Early adoption of college
placement testing
(COMPASS) at CPS can
identify college ready
students and remedial needs
prior to high school
graduation.
Articulated Programs| Career and technical education courses at CPS work
together with CCC courses to produce more certificates
Articulation Agreements will be
evaluated annually and revised
based on industry partner input

Dual Credit| As part of the application process, a Dual Credit scorecard
was designed to help schools identify if they are good candidates:
Qualified Teacher
Qualified Students
Weigh course options (AP vs DC)
AP PASS Rates (2010-11)
Pass Rate
(3+)
As a school determines which classes to offer going forward (Dual Credit or AP), they could
consider current pass rates for the AP exams. In some schools it may make sense to continue
offer AP in all subjects, in some offering both AP and Dual Credit, while others may benefit
from switching all courses to Dual Credit. Benchmark studies across the country show
students tend to perform strong in Dual Credit classes (75%+ success rates) where they have
a full semester to show their mastery of a subject matter rather than a high stakes exam.

Qualified Teachers
United States History
Qualified Teacher data reflects those teachers within your school that
may be qualified to teach Dual Credit (and thus gain adjunct status
through the City Colleges of Chicago). Note, however that the information
has been pulled form PeopleSoft and may incomplete. Please verify with
each department to determine if you have teachers who qualify.

Data Sharing| A strong collaboration benefits from sharing information
used to determine student placement and success.
Though initially driven by the need to share data in order to award credit, creating
sustainable data sharing infrastructure will enable CCC and CPS to better support student
transitions and provide feedback to HS and college departments on program outcomes.

Lessons Learned|Early College isn’t new to either
institution, but the intentional and sustainable
collaboration is new.
• Respect boundary conditions for partner institutions.
• Agree to share data early on in the collaboration.
• Internal and external marketing for all early college
programs.
• Appoint a person at the high schools who is
responsible for Dual Credit activities.
• Identify criteria for schools to participate, process for
selecting schools, and schedule for participation.
• Clearly identify the metric for success.
• Academic calendars and processes differ between
institutions; start early.
