College courses at GGUSD schools?

COLLEGE courses will be offered at some local high schools if an agreement is approved Tuesday night by the Garden Grove school board with the Rancho Santiago Community College District. Above, Santa Ana College (RSCCD photo).

Students in the Garden Grove Unified School District may be offered a streamlined route to two local colleges with classes offered on their home campuses.

That’s the partnership on the agenda for Tuesday’s meeting of the GGUSD Board of Education.

The memorandum of understanding between the district and Rancho Santiago Community College District – comprised of Santa Ana College and Santiago Canyon College –  “will create a clear pathway of aligned, sequenced coursework that will provide both high school and college credit,” available to current GGUSD students at 9-12 campuses within the boundaries of the RSCCD.

Also a full early college program will be launched at Santiago High School in Garden Grove beginning in fall 2019.

The GGUSD serves most of Garden Grove and parts of Anaheim, Cypress, Fountain Valley, Santa Ana, Stanton and Westminster. The board meets at 7 p.m. at the district office at 10331 Stanford Ave. in Garden Grove.
