UNION — Monday night’s meeting of the Union County Board of School Trustees included a presentation from Director of Secondary Education Cindy Langley regarding the possibility of dual credit courses — through USC Union — for Union County High School Students over the summer.
Langley said the district is always trying to increase dual credit options, and rising juniors and seniors will now have the option of taking coursework over the summer for dual credit.
“This is an exciting opportunity,” Langley said.
Langley said the same dual credit courses offered during the school year would be offered during the summer, and in addition, a political science course has been added. She also said the district and USC Union are in the process of making other dual credit courses available such as U.S. History, Chemistry 101 and 102, and Biology 101 and 102.
Langley said USC Union representatives will provide board members with more information about the dual credit courses in early March.
