One-half of Batesville Seniors will graduate with a full year of college credits

first_imgBatesville, IN— Through an innovative partnership with Ivy Tech in Batesville, one-half of Batesville High School (BHS) seniors graduating in May 2020 will also have earned enough credits to equal one full year of college—at virtually no cost to them.With a steady upward trend in the number of BHS students earning an entire year’s worth of college credits and unique work-based cooperative programs, the partnership between the Batesville Community School Corporation and Ivy Tech is a model for providing comprehensive career pathway options, according to Batesville Community School Corporation (BCSC) superintendent Paul Ketcham.  Because the Ivy Tech course enrollment is provided at no cost to the student, each of them can potentially save between $15,000 and $20,000 on future college expenses.“We are in the seventh year of this partnership with Ivy Tech and, each year, the program gets stronger,” Ketcham said. “Others look to us as a model of how to make this work for students, both in regard to the opportunities offered and the cost (free except for textbooks).“Next May, we expect 80 of our seniors—50 percent of the class—to earn 30 college credits, which is equal to one year of college,” Ketcham explained. “If the students didn’t have this opportunity and instead had to take those classes at a typical four-year institution, the total cost associated with them earning those credits could have approached $1.6 million. That savings proves that this is a worthwhile venture. Like other creative partnerships in Batesville, this cooperative funding effort by the City of Batesville, the school corporation, and Ivy Tech is yet another huge accomplishment for our small city.”Students interested in Ivy Tech programs may participate in two different ways. First, for those who plan to pursue further education after high school, Ivy Tech offers BHS students 16 different college-level courses, some taught at Ivy Tech and some at BHS.  Thanks to the Statewide Transfer General Education Core (STGEC) program, credit for these classes is guaranteed to transfer to all public four-year colleges in the State of Indiana. Students earning 30 hours are often eligible to enter college as sophomores via this transferability agreement. This enables some BHS graduates to gain a college degree in just three years.“We usually have about 170 juniors and seniors who are enrolled in an Ivy Tech class during any given academic year,” Ketcham said.  “Before this program started in 2012, students were lucky to have taken one or two college-level courses. Now, we’re sending them to college as sophomores, at virtually no cost to them. That’s an amazing accomplishment.”last_img read more

NBA Draft rumors: Knicks seriously considering taking Darius Garland over RJ Barrett

first_img NBA Draft 2019 rumors: Hawks interested in trading up for Jarrett Culver Former Duke forward RJ Barrett wants to play for the Knicks, but New York may not want him.The Knicks are bringing in Darius Garland for a last-minute workout, according to ESPN, and New York is seriously considering taking the guard at No. 3. The team is clearly searching for their floor general and doesn’t appear to be enamored with what is has.Garland averaged 16.2 points and 3.8 rebounds for Vanderbilt this season but he played just five games after suffering a meniscus injury against Kent State in November.The 19-year-old was a five-star recruit coming out of Tennessee in 2018. He was the No. 14 player in the nation, according to 247sports, and the No. 2 point guard. “If that ends up and I’m still there at three, I’d love for them to take me,” Barrett told reporters last week, via SNY. “This is the place I want to be, so I hope they draft me.”R.J. Barrett won’t be meeting with any other teams, and says that he wants to be a Knick:”This is the place I want to be, I hope they draft me” pic.twitter.com/E1i11C1C17— SNY (@SNYtv) June 10, 2019It was also reported in May the Knicks preferred point guard Ja Morant over RJ Barrett at No. 3. However, the Grizzlies have reportedly locked in on Morant at No. 2, so it does not appear the Murray State guard will be available for New York to take.That could also explain why the Knicks are considering taking Garland at No. 3. The team has been searching for a point guard for a few years now as they drafted Frank Ntilikina and acquired Emmanuel Mudiay from the Nuggets and Dennis Smith Jr. from the Mavericks.center_img Darius Garland will conduct a last-minute workout in Tarrytown with the New York Knicks tomorrow, a source told ESPN.
