(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.
