Legislative Update April 28, 2021

(Apr 28, 2021)

The purpose of this bill is to allow communities to better maintain municipal owned lands used for parks and recreation purposes for residents. Education Committee HB358 would allow charter schools to enter into agreements with postsecondary institutions to allow charter students to attend and earn credits at post-secondary institutions through a dual enrollment program. A dual enrollment program allows high school students to enroll in concurrent college courses through an institution of higher education.

Increasing participation in "advanced coursework, such as dual enrollment" is part of Pennsylvania's Every student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Consolidated State Plan, which Read more
