VAN WERT – Principals and counselors from Lincolnview, Crestview, Parkway, Vantage and Van Wert City Schools, as well as local college representatives will be hosting an informational meeting for parents/guardians beginning at 6 p.m. on Jan. 24, 2018.

The Ohio Department of Education began the College Credit Plus program for all students enrolled in Ohio schools. College Credit Plus has two fundamental positions:

1. Students must be enrolled in both college and high school.

2. Students can earn transcripted college and high school credit upon successful completion of the course.

Eligible students may need a qualifying college entrance exam score that places them in courses above a remediation level to participate.

This meeting will consist of a general session giving more information on College Credit Plus, as well as individual meetings with your respective school. There will be several colleges and universities in attendance. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 24 from 6 - 8 p.m. at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center.

If you have a student who might be interested in earning college credit during their time at Van Wert High School, please plan on attending the meeting. Should you have questions prior to the meeting please contact the Student Services Office at 419-238-2180 or Van Wert High School at 419-238-3350.
