Early college at Western High School (sounds great!)

The Jefferson  Community and Technical College and the Jefferson County Schools are finalizing plans to offer college level work at Western High School.   

At least initially, JCTC faculty will provide the courses that count both toward high school graduation and for credit at the college level.  An option is being built in for Western teachers to do some additional study and start also teaching some of the dual-credit classes.

The C-J has a long, impressive report on the plan here.

I'd add one further plus of this plan.  In a district committed to offering students and parents a choice among diverse schools, this option seems likely to get many takers.
