DVD families with students in: Art & Design 1 (opting for honors), Art & Design 2 (all) or Art & Design 3 (Architecture Pathway with Ms. Gavagan only):
Today your student should have received a letter with two enrollment documents from El Camino College (ECC) attached.
- The letter outlines the enrollment process students must go through to obtain the dual enrollment credit for Architecture classes.
- The Concurrent Enrollment document must be completed and signed by both STUDENT AND PARENT
- The last document is something students should fill out at home and bring to school with them so that they have all necessary info when/if working with a teacher, counselor or ECC rep during enrollment.
Currently the El Camino College Reps are scheduled to be on campus during the school day on Monday, February 12 and Tuesday, February 13 to support with enrollment during classes. This means students need to turn in their concurrent enrollment forms and info documents on Wednesday, February 7 or Thursday, February 8 (depending on the day their Art & Design pathway class falls). The deadline for us to send over enrollment forms is Friday, February 16.
If you need to access another copy of the documents, there is a link to each grade level packet below. Please do not hesitate to contact the school with any questions.
