The ECISD Board of Trustees demonstrated their commitment to college and career success by voting to cover the cost of dual credit classes taken by EC High School Students. Dual credit classes are unique in that they allow high school students to acquire college credits while also receiving credit for the associated high school course. This financial support will actually start this Spring as students who are currently taking dual credit courses will be reimbursed for the cost of those courses. Dual credit courses taken through Lee College are transferrable to any Texas State College. There are currently 21 hours of college courses available to EC High School Students with plans to expand the course selection to best support the careers in the region.
