This episode of Systems Sessions further explores how access to dual credit is being supported and expanded throughout Illinois with the adoption of the Model Partnership Agreement (MPA). Marcus Brown, Senior Director for Academic Affairs with the Illinois Community College Board, joins us to discuss the current landscape of dual credit and the need for the Dual Credit Quality Act and the MPA. Josh Stafford, Superintendent of Vienna High School will also join us to describe how a rural community in southern Illinois has provided extensive access to dual credit and the impact the MPA is having.
Our first episode of Systems Sessions dives into the work of the State of Illinois Dual Credit Committee to develop the Model Partnership Agreement. This Agreement guides local partnerships between school districts and community colleges to expand and support quality dual credit access and offerings. We will hear directly from members of the Dual Credit Committee about the development process and how this Agreement is shaping dual credit delivery across Illinois. Joining us for this conversation are Vice President of Teaching, Learning, and Student Development at Elgin Community College, Peggy Heinrich, and Pontiac Township High School Educator, Jesse Faber.
