         More to Come
   Using the Business Associate Degree
    as a template, other CHS departments
    are working cooperatively with IVY Tech
    to develop:
       • AG (Agriculture, Natural Resources & Environment)
       • ART – (Arts, Media & Communication)
       • Life Sciences – (Health Services)
       • PLTW (Industrial & Engineering Technology)
       • General Studies & Education (Social and
        Consumer Services)
               Next Steps
   CHS ECHS is constantly evolving to add additional
    classes as teachers obtain the required credentials.

   Students and parents should make themselves aware
    of the ECHS opportunity (all information is printed in
    the CHS Career Planner and posted on the CHS
    website) to aid in planning for future education and

   Make CHS ECHS courses a part of yearly high school
    course planning.

   Spread the word!!!!!
