the Wake Young Men's Leadership Academy, subject to the Board Attorney reconciling minor
issues with the County Attorney. On August 6, 2012, the Board of Commissioners approved a
resolution authorizing the County Manager to enter into a lease agreement on the A.A.
Thompson Building with the School Board for a term of up to thirty years, at a rate of $1.00 per
year, subject to other conditions acceptable to the County Attorney. The attorneys for the

and lease are not needed. The attorneys agreed to incorporate the provisions from the Interlocal

SCHOOL PERFORMANCE


12. BOARD POLICY 5534: DUAL ENROLLMENT

Revised; Second Reading
The dual enrollment policy guides students who are seeking academic credit from institutions in
collaboration with WCPSS. The existing policy lacks necessary language to recognize all current
academic opportunities accepted for credit. Staff presented the first draft of revisions to the
policy committee on May 29, 2012. Taking direction from a discussion then, staff presented
acceptable revisions to both the student achievement and policy committees a later dates for
approval. The final draft captures the needed changes for accepting credit from other agencies.
These changes are necessary for updates to the dual enrollment form used at the school level to
establish authorization for students to enroll in acceptable academic institutions other than
WCPSS. These changes are needed to be effective for the 2012-2013 school year. Fiscal
Implications: None. Savings: N/A. Recommendation for Action: Board approval is requested.
