Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: December 3, 2020 12:39 PM
From: Senator Camera Bartolotta
To: All Senate members
Subject: Dual Enrollment for Charter Schools
In the near future, I will reintroduce legislation to allow charter schools, regional charter schools, and cyber charter schools ("charter school entities") to offer dual enrollment programs to their students. This measure will be similar to Senate Bill 760 from the previous legislative session.

A dual enrollment program allows high school students to enroll in concurrent college courses through an institution of higher education. However, current state law only allows traditional public schools to enter into concurrent enrollment agreements and offer such programs. My legislation would allow charter school entities to offer similar programs to the students they serve.

Please join me to cosponsor this legislation and to ensure charter, regional charter and cyber charter schools continue operating as strong, quality school choice options for the Commonwealth's children and families.

Introduced as SB237
