    Counselors Corner

    Lewis-Palmer School District provides opportunities for qualified high school students in grades 9-12 to enroll in college courses and earn credit through The Concurrent Enrollment (CE) program.  Concurrent Enrollment programs may help students significantly reduce college expenses, increase the likelihood of completing college, and develop knowledge, marketable skills and abilities necessary to be ready for college and the workforce.

    LPSD will cover the cost for tuition for the CE college course(s) based on the Colorado Community College System tuition rate less the College Opportunity Fund allocation.  The student/family is responsible for the payment of books and fees associated with each course and securing transportation to and from the campus of which the student is enrolled.  Students/families will also be liable for tuition if the student fails the course(s) or proper drop procedures are not followed – resulting in a withdraw (W).

    Course selection will be in consideration of the student’s college and career goals as indicated on their Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP), the availability of the course either on our high school campus or within the desired Institution of Higher Education’s course catalog for the desired term and whether the course is transferable to the intended degree plan when applicable through the CDHE Statewide Transfer Degree Plans

    In order to qualify for Concurrent Enrollment, students must:

    • Have a minimum G.P.A. of 2.5 and meet all prerequisites and course expectations.
    • Qualify for college-level courses (remediation is only available to seniors in the area of math and English).
    • Maintain an accurate and up-to-date Individual Career Academic Plan (ICAP) with postsecondary goals that align to the pursued courses.
    • Engage in college-planning meetings with the school Concurrent Enrollment Coordinator and comply with all expectations and procedures.
    • Have at least a part-time enrollment status with Lewis-Palmer School District consisting of 2-5 high school courses (unless homeschooled)
    • Be on track to graduate with no failing grades or discipline issues/events.
    • Maintain a record of good standing that reflects adherence to the Lewis-Palmer School District Code of Conduct

    The deadline for Spring 2021  enrollment is October 1st  and there are several Accuplacer testing events in the meantime to fulfill one of the means of eligibility determination.  To learn more about Concurrent Enrollment and the costs, benefits, logistics and expectations, as well as the process for getting started, please complete the Concurrent Enrollment Interest Form located at https://forms.gle/1DkcUXv9rp79GSm58 at your earliest convenience.

    Online High School 

    (for online students only, not hybrid students)

    • The first Grade check is coming up on Wednesday, September 16th. All work, for the first 3 weeks, in your Canvas courses, will be due and need to be submitted/completed by 11:59 p.m. so that teachers may grade your work and enter your grades by the end of Friday, September 18th.
    • Please go back to assignments that have been graded and check for comments from your teachers as this is where your understanding and growth can occur through the feedback received.
    • Issues with online textbooks for Canvas courses, please email LPHSTECHHELP@lewispalmer.org. Our tech help team will be able to take a look and get back to you.
    • IC Messenger emails: I know I have asked you all to only email me using your school email account and you should expect the same from me. I do however need to utilize the IC Messenger email system due to the large volume of emails in my group for Online at LPHS. Messenger only sends emails to the address on file in IC and so some of you may receive a message through your personal email instead of your school email address. PLEASE BE CHECKING BOTH REGULARLY.
