Can AP or Dual credit CTE classes count as math or science graduation credits?
Yes, West Ada has computer science and pre-engineering classes that count. West Ada's Graduation Policy Code No. 603.20 line 125 reads: "AP Computer Science, Dual Credit Computer Science, and Dual Credit Engineering courses may also be counted as a mathematics credit IF the student has completed Algebra II standards. Students who choose to take AP Computer Science, Dual Credit Computer Science, and Dual Credit Engineering may not concurrently count such courses as both a math and science credit."
If you are not familar with West Ada's computer science and pre-engineering classes, you will find a listing of the district's program classes in the CTE Magnet Program section of a current copy of any comprehensive zoned-home high schools' course description handbooks. If you need clarification about the policy, visit with your high school counselor or contact the CTE Administration Office at 208-350-5051.
