The Ector County Independent School District’s board of trustees will consider a dual enrollment program agreement with the University of Texas of the Permian Basin.

The program — a memorandum of understanding and articulation agreement — gives high school students a chance to take up to six hours (two courses) of college level classes such as biology and English at the university.

While earning college credit, the high school juniors and seniors also receive high school credit in the process.

“It’s intended to help high school students have an exposure to college or university level instruction while in high school so that their transition to college will be smoother and more successful,” UTPB President David Watts said.

If approved, the program would begin in the fall, Watts said.

Students do pay tuition and would need to apply to UTPB and enroll into classes prior to that time, Watts said.

Also Thursday, trustees will consider approving this year’s Student Code of Conduct.
