Purdue Extension's Learning Network of Clinton County has joined a partnership with the Indiana University High School (IUHS), and Community Action Program, Inc. of Western Indiana to provide a facilitated learning program for high school students seeking alternative forms of education.
Under the partnership, traditional and nontraditional students take online IUHS courses that apply toward their local school’s diploma requirements, or toward an IUHS diploma. Through the Clinton County Learning Network, students receive access to computer labs, on-site tutors, and licensed teacher-facilitators funded through a grant from the Clinton County Department of Child Services. Support services such as career planning, mentoring, and Department of Workforce Development — funded scholarships are also available. IUHS is also providing a 25 percent discount on tuition to students participating through this partnership.
“The collaboration among these three organizations provides a unique and exciting opportunity for students in Clinton County,” said IUHS Director Bruce Colston. “We hope to form similar partnerships in other communities so that students across Indiana can realize their educational goals.”
Indiana University High School is an accredited virtual high school offering more than 100 distance education courses, 60 dual-credit courses, and AP courses in English, history, and chemistry. More information about IUHS is available at scs.indiana.edu.
