ALBANY, GEORGIA – Albany Technical College (ATC) will sign a “Memorandum of Understanding” (MOU) with Mitchell County Board of Education during a ceremony on Monday, September 30 at 10:00 a.m. in Albany Technical College’s Logistics Education Center, Executive Board Room (second floor).
In the new MOU, Albany Technical College and Mitchell County Board of Education have agreed to work together to introduce dual enrollment and general public credit programs on location at Mitchell County High School, 1000 Newton Rd. Camilla, GA 31730. Under the agreement, these programs are:
- Culinary Arts
- Design and Media
- Environmental Horticulture
This collaborative between Albany Technical College and Mitchell County Board of Education is a continuation of an already existing partnership between the two educational entities. Over a year ago, an agreement to teach dual-enrolled high school students on the campus of Albany Tech was established. Based on the success of this working relationship and expressed interest by the high school, Albany Tech has now expanded its offerings to include the on-location option at Mitchell County High School.
The “Memorandum of Understanding” takes effect January 12, 2020 and expires May 15, 2020, renewable at the beginning of each academic year. All credits are contingent upon the student’s completion of the courses.
