Final Target Status  > >Partially Achieved

The Math Alignment Strategy Team (MAST) worked with Harper's three partner high school districts beginning in FY2013. In FY2015, the team continued to improve the MTH080 project as well as develop dual-credit opportunities.

The English department created a working group that collaborated with partner high school districts to align curricula. The efforts resulted in a new high school composition course and a dual-credit offering. While the CCSS have not yet been developed for science, Harper faculty members in the sciences have been collaborating with partner high schools to develop dual-credit opportunities.
