More options for college-bound Commerce students

Commerce – Commerce Schools will be offering more college-level courses for students in the coming school year. The Commerce Board of Trustees approved enhancements and changes to the dual-credit program that allows students to receive both high school and college credit at A&M-Commerce for some courses. Courses have been added to the program and high school juniors will be allowed to enroll for the first time, provided they meet grade and test score requirements.

Financial help through the district and A&M-Commerce also helps make the program viable for students. Superintendent Keith Boles said 9 hours of classes would cost just under $160, and that could be a big help financially for parents.

School officials meet with parents today to discuss the program and requirements. You can contact the Commerce district offices at 903.886.3755 for more information.
