As of Fall 2016, Inclusive Higher Education Kentucky is partnering with the Kentucky Department of Vocational Rehabilitation to establish the Dual Enrollment Pilot Project (DEPP). DEPP has one major goal – to expand access to create a statewide dual enrollment system through which students with disabilities can have the same opportunities as any other student in secondary schools in Kentucky. Programs are in development at this time (March 2017).
In order to achieve this goal, we will establish two classifications of student eligibility:
- Diploma track students will include degree or certificate seeking students with disabilities. Acceptance criteria will include academics, family support, student motivation to pursue college as a viable transition path to employment and fall within the Pre-ETS definition of student as defined by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunities Act (WIOA).
- Alternate diploma students with disabilities who are interested in Comprehensive Transition Programs (CTPs) or non-degree or certificate seeking and who demonstrate motivation and family support to pursue a viable transition path to employment and fall within the Pre-ETS definition of student in WIOA.
