(Indianapolis, Ind.) – The Indiana Department of Education invited 133 schools out of 298 districts across Indiana to be honored for dual credit student opportunities.

To be invited, school districts must have met a guideline of at least 30 percent of their high school students successfully completing at least one dual credit class.

Schools received a bronze rating if their percentage was between 30 and 50 percent, a silver rating between 50 and 75 percent, and a gold rating between 75 and 100 percent.

Across the state, only six schools received a gold rating, and only ten schools received a silver rating.

Southeast Indiana schools receiving awards were:

Rising Sun – Silver

Milan – Bronze

Batesville – Silver

Oldenburg – Silver

East Central – Bronze

Franklin County – Bronze

“Last year, 20 percent of graduating RSHS seniors completed enough dual credits to be finished with the first year of college before stepping on campus,” said Rising Sun-Ohio County Schools Superintendent Branden Roeder.
