Art and design are poised to transform our economy in the 21st century in the same way that science and technology did in the last century, and the STEAM movement is an opportunity for America to sustain its role as innovator of the world.” John Maedea, “STEM to STEAM: Art in K-12 Is Key to Building a Strong Economy,” Edutopia, October 2, 2012.

  19. Science – Move On When Ready • Science courses assigned to a dual enrollment number can count as the 4th science for high school graduation credit. • For a college course that has been aligned to a high school course, institutions can request the college course to be also assigned a dual enrollment number. • When a college course is aligned to both an actual high school course number and a dual enrollment number, the high school should: • Always give the student credit for the actual high school course as long as the student has not previously taken that course • Give the student credit for the college course by using the dual enrollment number if the student has previously taken the high school course Contact Juan-Carlos Aguilar at jaguilar@doe.k12.ga.us
