An agreement between the Garden Grove Unified School District and the Rancho Santiago Community College District which could make it easier for students to advance their college careers was approved by the GGUSD Board of Education Tuesday night.

The board voted 5-0 in favor of the “memorandum of understanding” with the RSCCD – which operates Santa Ana College and Santiago Canyon College in Orange – to allow students to take courses that will have college and high school credit.

Those students must be attending GGUSD high schools within the boundaries of the RSCCD.

It also clears the way for a full early college program for students at Santiago High School in Garden Grove starting in fall 2019.

The GGUSD serves most of Garden Grove and parts of Anaheim, Cypress, Fountain Valley, Santa Ana, Stanton and Westminster.  The next meeting of the board is scheduled for Feb. 5.
