2017 Wisconsin Act 206 created the Dual Enrollment Credential Grant to assist high school teachers to meet the minimum qualification requirements of the Higher Learning Commission for eligibility to teach dual enrollment courses.
$500,000.00 is available annually with awards to be made to five categories:
Following each school year the school receives an award the school must submit a report to the board including – the number of high school teachers who received the grant; the total of postsecondary credits completed by high school teachers that were funded by the grant; and the number of high school teachers described under the first requirement who are minimally qualified to teach dual enrollment courses.
The program is currently scheduled to conclude June 30, 2021.
The application period Summer 2020 through Spring 2021 is now open. If your school district (public) or school (private or charter) received funds during the 2019-2020 funding period, you are required to provide reporting regarding the previous funding. The reporting will be conducted via an emailed survey sent to the contact listed on the previous year’s application.
No new funds will issue until the mandatory reporting is completed.
The application period will close April 15th, 2021.
