Program History &
Three Core Values
Program Core #1:

 Prior to the start of our program, SBCC
 administration met extensively with high
 school administrators and faculty to build
 relationships and create a plan that would be
 a “WIN” for everyone, especially students
 and their parents.
Program Core #2:

 The Dual Enrollment Program has been
 built with the philosophy that SBCC will
 bring college classes to each high school to
 provide access.
Program Core #3:

 Building and sustaining relationships is our
 #1 priority in program management.
SBCC Dual Enrollment Program Details:
1.   We offer college classes on-site at our local high school
     campuses, before school, during the day and after school.
     This is in addition to K12 students taking classes on the
     main SBCC campus. For the purposes of this session, we
     will just be discussing Dual Enrollment classes taught at
     the high school campuses.

2.   Classes at high school sites are offered in 15 academic and
     16 career technical disciplines, with more than 100 classes
     each semester (credit is awarded on an SBCC transcript that

3.   Our enrollment is between 2,500 and 3,000 (non-duplicative
     headcount) per year (fall and spring only).

Potential Pitfalls:
• 9th graders understanding what it means to be enrolled in a
  college course
• Instructors teaching with college rigor
• Struggling student issues
• Funding for textbooks and consumable workbooks
• Logistics of implementing the online 10-Year-Plan
• Touch points (from the college perspective) of connecting with
  students in 10th, 11th, and 12th grades
• The need for a point person at the college and the high school
  for frequent interaction
               Dual Enrollment &
            Career Choices Partnership
Potential Pitfalls:
• Finding the appropriate college department can be tricky
• Most community colleges would choose to “house” the course
  in their Personal Development department, which requires a
  Master‟s Degree in Counseling
• SBCC has a “Professional Development” department, which
  requires a Bachelor‟s Degree. In order to be acceptable to all
  parties at the College, no psychometrics (Myers Briggs, etc.)
  could be included in the course
            Career Choices Relates to
          Career Pathways & Academies
• Career Choices informs students about pathways available at
  their school
• Dual Enrollment offers classes in all local academies
• Dual Enrollment works closely with all academy directors
• Participation in industry-based advisory meetings
• The James Irvine Foundation grant sponsors professional
  development activities
     Career Choices Course & the Link to
           Community College Courses
• Four year vision with Career Choices “touch
  point” Dual Enrollment Courses in 10th -12th
• Integration into College Transfer Initiative,
  President Obama‟s plan, and SBCC local
