Welcome to the Option B Resource Center for districts!
Our goal is to provide you with the resources and support you need to build a successful Option B program.
We have gathered information from state agencies as well as best practices from current Option B districts.
We have compiled the information and best practices into a comprehensive “Guide to Dual Enrollment Graduation Option B.”
We have also compiled a Model PowerPoint with slides designed to explain Option B in a graphical format. You could incorporate these model slides, as you deem appropriate, in various presentations to students, parents, staff, counselors, community groups and employers. Some of the slides could also be used as handouts by counselors when meeting one-on-one with students and/or parents.
Here is the Table of Contents for the Guide:
