Health and Human Services
Please note that if a student has taken dual credit courses before and they have a transition plan in their file at their home school then that student will need to ensure that the pathway they selected previously is still in accordance with the program they are applying for. Ex If a student took the TASK program under the trades pathway, then the student could apply for an electrical (trade based) program the following semester. That student could not apply for the Health Care Assistance Program option as this falls under the Health pathway. Please see your Career teacher for more support.
