Again, these are our plans now which we hope do not change. It is possible that if there is an increase in the number of cases in El Paso county as these dates get closer that this plan may have to be altered. We hope that in an effort to keep our plan in place, and to get students back to school, that our community is taking all of the health mandates seriously and wearing masks when in in-door public spaces and practicing social distancing guidelines.
Students attending Welte have the opportunity to earn college credit by taking a Career Start course at Pikes Peak Community College (PPCC) starting their junior year. Students will earn high school credit by passing a course with a "D" or better and college credit by earning a "C" or better in a course. The school district covers cost for tuition and provides transportation to PPCC for students. High school sophomores and juniors interested in taking a Career Start course at PPCC for their following year will have an opportunity to tour programs on the campus in February through a sign up sheet provided by the school counselor in January. Eligibility to participate in a Career Start course depends on grades, attendance, and behavior. In addition, Career Start courses must align with credits needed to graduate on time.
