I write to inform you of two valuable opportunities for students.
First, Woodstock Union High School is offering Dual Enrollment credits. In short, these are college courses which may be taken by juniors or seniors either on a college campus or online. These courses count for both high school and college credit and they are available at no charge to students or families. A student who takes a course is able to finish high school with college credits already completed. Students are limited to two courses and may take the course during the school year or the summer. Additional information is available at: http://tinyurl.com/woodstock-dual-enrollment and students may apply for a tuition voucher at: www.vtdualenrollment.org.
Please note that these are VT college courses available at schools such as UVM, Castleton, and CCV and they are free of charge to your students. Interested students should contact their school counselor. Fall registration is fast approaching, so don’t wait.
Second, WUHS is pleased to offer Supplemental Educational Services. These are tutoring services which may be accessed by any student whose family qualifies for the Free and Reduced Lunch Program. Tutoring services are available from approved providers, and you can access a list of these providers at: http://education.vermont.gov/documents/EDU-SES_Vermont_Approved_Providers.pdf A hard copy of this list is available in the HS office. Supplemental Educational Services are free and can be tailored to meet the academic needs of individual students.
If you are interested in signing up for these services, please call me at 457-1317 ext. 1050 in order to make an appointment. We will work together to develop a contract with the provider of your choice from the list of approved providers. There is a cap on the amount of money available to each student and transportation to the tutoring site is not available. I ask that you please contact me before October 1, 2014. Families who have not yet applied for the Free and Reduced Lunch program may still do so and may access these Supplemental Educational Services even if you do not wish to participate in the Free and Reduced Lunch program. You need only be eligible to participate.
Please contact me if you have questions.
