This is the image for the news article titled BISD to Offer New Dual Credit Opportunities for Fall 2018On Monday, December 18th, the board unanimously approved the implementation of new dual credit courses and pathways offered through Brazosport College. In partnership with the college, the district will now offer an additional 12 courses in Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathways in conjunction with the already established agreements.

Starting the Fall of 2018, students who meet entrance requirements at both Brazosport High School and Brazoswood High School will be able to enroll in more CTE based pathways. The first pathway is the Automotive Chassis track where students will have the opportunity to enroll in courses beginning their sophomore year all the way through the summer after graduation allowing them to obtain their Automotive Technology, Chassis Specialty Certificate along with additional certifications through Automotive Service Excellence (ASE).

Drafting and Electrical Pathways are also being established proving hands-on, real-world training within the Architecture and Construction fields. Students can expect to earn 12 college credit hours in both of these fields during the duration of their junior and senior year and from there can continue the completion of their program upon graduation. Since the job market within these areas is strong, graduates often complete these programs with lucrative paying positions.

Pathways were also reconfigured within the Instrumentation and Process Technology tracks, providing students with an additional district credit both their junior and senior year to more accurately reflect the work and college credit achieved within these pathways. These new opportunities will be along with the already well established pathways in the areas of Welding, Pipefitting, and Machine/Millwright programs.

These pathways will create more opportunities for our students, allowing them the advantage of receiving college credit coupled with hands-on experience in high-demand and high-wage industry occupations, putting them one step ahead of competitors. This is just another example of how we are raising and setting the standard at Brazosport ISD
