Policy Title: 

Consistent with ORS 340.005 to 340.090 ("Expanded Options Program"), the Board is committed to providing additional options to students enrolled in grades 11 and 12 to continue or complete their education, to earn concurrent high school and college credits and to gain early entry into post-secondary education.

Eligible students may apply to take courses at Lane Community College through the Expanded Options Program. A student is eligible if he or she is in grade 11 or 12 or is 16 years of age or older, has developed an education learning plan and has not completed four years of high school. A student must demonstrate preparedness for the intended courses at Lane. A student who has graduated from high school may not participate; however, a student who has completed course requirements for graduation, but who has not received a diploma, may participate in the Expanded Options Program.

Lane Community College will provide written notice to the student's school district and the State Department of Education and shall enter into a financial agreement with the student's district such that each district will be responsible for their students' tuition, fees or other required instructional costs associated with the student's enrollment.

The College does not intend to provide special education and related services to the student.
