By Linsey Edwards & Katherine L. Hughes

This guide, created in partnership with the Career Academy Support Network at the University of California, Berkeley, provides practitioners, schools, and districts with a road map for incorporating college coursework into high school academies and pathways.

Included in this how-to guide is a list of steps, considerations, and resources, with examples from the Concurrent Courses Initiative—a study of eight dual enrollment programs in California.
