High School Teachers & Districts
High School teachers are encouraged to apply to teach dual credit classes that are offered at their high schools. To serve as the Teacher of Record of a class for which college credit is awarded, high school teacher applicants must meet the credential standard of the Ohio Department of Higher Education as well as any requirements established by the respective departments for the hiring of adjunct faculty.
High School teachers who do not meet the credentialing standards of the Ohio Department of Higher Education and the respective departments, but who have some level of academic course work and experience teaching in the discipline, may be eligible to facilitate a technology-enhanced course in which a Columbus State faculty member would serve as the Teacher of Record and collaborate with the high school teacher to effectively and efficiently deliver the class. The responsibilities of the high school teacher as facilitator would be outlined in advance of the class during orientation and training sessions.
All high school teachers interested in becoming Dual Credit Instructors must apply here: CCP Instructor Application. Along with the application, teachers must submit transcripts, a resume, a letter of recommendation from the high school principal, and any additional required documentation. All materials must be submitted at one time. Please do not "submit" the file until it is complete. All new teachers are required to attend the Dual Credit Orientation Day and will be invited to participate in on-going professional development designed to enhance the instruction of the course.
Your approval to teach a course should not change when you move to a new building or to a new district. However, you will need to re-apply and include a new letter of reference from your new administrator. Make sure you include your new contact information when you submit your materials so that we have correct information on file.
Each year's Academic Planning Document should be submitted to the college by the district by March 30. The proposed list of courses for both Autumn and Spring semesters should be clearly identified and a rationale for any variation on the college calendar clearly stated. Districts are encouraged to meet with the Director of the College Credit Plus Curriculum Office to create, edit, and confirm these courses to ensure they are appropriate for high school on-site offerings and encompass a cohesive set of courses toward a degree pathway.
All College Credit Plus requested courses must be college-level. Schools interested in offering developmental or pre-college level mathematics courses may consider College Prep Math in their buildings. College Prep Math is designed to remediate students' mathematics challenges individually and prepare them for college-level course work. Because College Prep Math is designed to remediate math skills and improve placement, it may not be offered for college credit and will not be included on the college transcript.
Textbook Collection and Buyback Information
Due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) safety concerns, our administration made the decision to close the physical Columbus State Bookstore location for now. However, the bookstore website, bookstore.cscc.edu remains open and this site is fully capable of servicing all CC+ students.
Since the bookstore location is closed at this time, the spring semester '20 textbook collection for participating partners and textbook buyback for our partners who collect textbooks from students in their embedded courses will need to be postponed. The spring semester textbook collection will be combined with the summer semester textbook collection period which will occur August 3 – 14, 2020. For those schools who collect books from their students and work directly with the bookstore to coordinate buyback opportunities, please continue to work with the bookstore.
COVID-19 has brought changes and challenges to our lives and caused us all to pause and evaluate how we handle daily tasks. These efforts are driven primarily by safety concerns, but also for logistical reasons. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us with any concerns or questions you have regarding CC+ at Columbus State. Our team will proceed with an understanding and flexible approach to the work as we await further guidance from Governor DeWine and CSCC administration.
