Articulation Agreement Between CCS, FTCC Gets ‘Thumbs Up’
The Board unanimously approved the Articulation Agreement: Cumberland County Partnership between the Cumberland County Schools and Fayetteville Technical Community College (FTCC). The goal of the Agreement states that “students will make a seamless transition of identified courses from secondary to post-secondary education for college credit.”
The following criteria will be used to award college credit for identified high school courses within the partnership:
1. Final Mark or B or higher in the course;
2. Scaled score of 88 or higher on the standardized CTE post-assessment or earned industry-recognized credential aligned with the course; and
3. Enroll at FTCC within two years of high school graduation.
This local agreement is built upon the state-wide articulation agreement between local educational systems and community colleges.
