Vision Statement

The vision of Hampshire Unit School is to EMPOWER ALL students to succeed in a changing world.

 

Ready Graduate

Tennessee Department of Education has set graduation requirements that best prepare students for opportunities to be successful in their post K – 12 experiences whether they choose college, career institutes, or immediate transition to the work force. Students who meet one of the following criteria demonstrate they are a “Ready Graduate”:

  • Scoring 21 or higher on the ACT or
  • Completing 4 EPSOs or
  • Completing 2 EPSOs + earning industry certification or
  • Completing 2 EPSOs + ASVAB designated score

An EPSO is an early post-secondary opportunity – a course and/or exam that gives students a chance to obtain postsecondary credit while still in high school. At HUS, there are four types of EPSO classes: Statewide Dual Credit, Local Dual Credit, Dual Enrollment, and Capstone Industry Certification-Aligned. In addition to meeting State graduation requirements, our goal is for students to be “Ready Graduates” who have skills and confidence required for success after high school.

 

EPSO: Statewide Dual Credit Courses

A Statewide Dual Credit course is a high school course that incorporates postsecondary learning objectives and is aligned with an approved dual credit challenge exam. There is no charge, and all students are required to take the online challenge exam. Students who pass the challenge exam earn a college credit that can be applied to any TN public postsecondary institution. Due to the increased difficulty and workload of the Dual Credit classes, four points will be added to the Dual Credit course grade for a maximum of 104. The following Dual Credit classes are provided at HUS:

Math

Statistics; Pre-Calculus

Social Studies

World History; American History

Agriculture

Intro to Plant Science; Agriculture Business

Business

Intro to Business and Marketing

Elective

Speech Communications

 

 

EPSO: Dual Enrollment at HUS

The TN Colleges of Applied Technology (TCAT) at Hohenwald and/or Pulaski offers Dual Enrollment courses at HUS that is taught by a HUS teacher. Students earn hours toward an industry certification or diploma through the TCAT while also earning high school credit. These courses also may count toward a Focus Area for graduation purposes. The following Dual Enrollment class is available to juniors and seniors:

Business Communications

Construction I

Construction II

 

EPSO: Dual Enrollment at Northfield

TCAT Hohenwald also offers the following program for high school juniors and seniors at their Mount Pleasant location:

Cost of enrollment may be covered through the Dual Enrollment Grant program funded by the Tennessee Lottery and administered by the Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation (TSAC). The award amounts are as follows: up to $500 for the first course; up to $500 for the second course; up to $200 for the third course; and no award for the fourth course. Any balance for a class above the grant amount is the responsibility of the student.

 

Steps to enrollment (Access all forms online at CSCC dual-enrollment.)

  1. Go to www.columbiastate.edu and complete the Dual Enrollment Application AND the DE Grant Application. (If first time for the grant, create a TSAC account.)
  2. Print and complete the CSCC DE Consent Form. Take the Consent Form to your counselor and request that it be sent to CSCC along with your transcript and ACT scores. (Students who have participated in DE through a TCAT must also send TCAT transcript directly from the TCAT to CSCC.) You must have a 3.6 and an ACT score of 19 to dual enroll. If you do not have these scores, you must take the CSCC placement test. This is to be scheduled through CSCC, by the student.
  3. After you receive your CSCC log-in, register for CSCC classes. (There are prerequisites for many courses.) CSCC class times MAY NOT CONFLICT with your HUS schedule.
  4. Take a copy of the CSCC Student Detail Schedule to your School Counselor for the class to be included in your HUS schedule.
  5. Notify the School Counselor before dropping a class. Failure to do so may result in the denial of future requests to participate in Dual Enrollment.
  6. For each subsequent semester, reapply for the grant, register for classes, and turn in a copy of the CSCC Student Detail Schedule for your counselor.
  7. See your counselor if you have any questions.

 

To stay in the DE Program while in high school, a student must maintain a 2.0 GPA in the college courses taken. To remain eligible for the Dual Enrollment Grant, students must maintain at least a 2.75 GPA in their dual enrollment college courses.
