JoLynn Wilson
36:32
can we get a copy of the presentation?
Jennifer Gunn

Yes, JoLynn. We’ll send a follow-up email with the presentation.
Daniel Hutchins
36:54
Ditton on the presentation, also how long is the program (weeks, etc)?
Ray Weaver
37:44
Will the TSIA exemption count toward the CCMR Accountability bonus?
Jennifer Gunn
39:07
@Daniel, students can move through the online courses at varying paces. More to come on that.
Jennifer Gunn
39:52
@Ray, the college prep courses count for TSI under CCMR accountability but not for the outcomes bonus.
Ray Weaver
41:09
Thanks for clarifying, Jennifer! I'm guessing that since the course is TSI aligned though that it is a solid method for preparing for the TSIA2, correct?
Jennifer Gunn
41:16
For those who’ve recently entered, this informational session is being recorded. At the end of the session, we will stop the recording and open it up to your questions. You will get access to the slide deck in a follow up email. Glad you’re here!
Sarah Jensen
42:23
@Ray - Good timing! Timi just shared too. :) Even though it wouldn’t count for the outcomes bonus it would absolutely set students up for success for TSIA2.
Anna Daniels
42:46
Does the teacher individually get that or the school?
Jennifer Gunn
44:59
@Anna, I missed the context for your question. What were you referencing?
Jennifer Gunn
45:28

We are recording so please turn off your video.
Anna Daniels
46:25
@Jennifer she was talking about funding and TCLAS?

Daniel Hutchins
48:53
May have been stated previously, but is there a cost to districts for this program or is the Commish footing the bill?
JoLynn Wilson
50:11
We need clarification on a few slides back where you discussed partnering with a college/university to set up courses. We thought the curriculum was within the TCB program?
Jennifer Gunn
50:19
@Daniel, I believe more information will be presented coming up. I believe funding is covered up to June 2024.
Anna Daniels
50:41
Who needs to apply for TCLAS? The teacher or the school?
Jennifer Gunn
51:11
@JoLynn, she was presenting the requirements for the college prep courses. TCB does provide a curriculum that is in partnership with IHEs.
Jennifer Gunn
51:23
@Anna, the district would apply for TCLAS.
Anna Daniels
52:08
Ok, thanks
Randall Ashford
54:05
Can we register students throughout the year?
Julie Rush
55:08
Is there enough content to support a year long College Prep Math course?
Jennifer Gunn
55:22
@Randall, you would be able to register students throughout the year.
Timi Creekmore
56:03
@Julie - depends on the level of the student knowledge.
Jennifer Gunn
58:01
@Julie, I will add that the online course could be supplemented in a F2F setting if your needs are that students are in a full-year math course.
Julie Rush
59:10
Is there an average time that a typical student takes to work through stage 1 and 2?
Virginia Blanco
01:02:32
Just to clarify, does the student have to take/pass the TSIA in order to receive the certificate of completion?
Cynthia Cid
01:03:04
If students do well on the diagnostic, does that mean that they have less modules to work on in both stages?
Jennifer Gunn
01:03:12
@Virginia, the TSIA2 is not a requirement for these courses.
Sarah McKimmey
01:03:37
Do most schools use CP Eng and CP math as the last credit or in addition to English IV and a fourth math credit
Virginia Blanco
01:03:42
Thank you!
Jennifer Gunn
01:03:47
@Cynthia, the diagnostic will determine how much the student has to work through to complete the course.
Jennifer Gunn
01:04:15
@Sarah, implementation practices vary greatly around the state.
Shannon Celestine-Brown
01:05:00
Do they receive HS credit for taking the Texas College Bridge?
Robert Hamil
01:05:15
So if we have an MOU with one of these colleges already do we need to do anything else?
Daniel Hutchins
01:05:23
Does this have to be a full-length class period or can it be used in an Intervention/Enrichment type period which is shorter? Also, do they receive CCMR without the certificate?
Jennifer Gunn
01:05:29
@Shannon, depending on how the course is implemented, students can receive HS credit.
Shannon Celestine-Brown
01:05:58
How would I get help with knowing which implementation= HS credit?
Jennifer Gunn
01:06:10
@Robert, your individual MOU with any one institution will not give you Texas College Bridge access. Next steps will be provided at the end of the session.
Ray Weaver
01:07:18
Is that increase in pass rate for dual credit students?
Jennifer Gunn
01:07:31
@Daniel and @Shannon, your questions will be more fully addressed in our upcoming sessions. I’ll repost the registrations and we’ll circle back to these topics at the END of today’s session.
Sarah McKimmey
01:07:53
Are these courses accepted by NCAA

Nicole McCabe
01:08:48
@Ray: the increase in pass rates Dallas College saw were from Class of 2020 graduates last summer before they started college classes in the fall
Jennifer Gunn
01:08:59
@Sarah, these classes are specific to TX and (unless something has changed that I haven’t heard about) not recognized by NCAA.

Who do we send sections to they will populate>
Randall Ashford
01:13:42
That might be a problem for my district since we begin the school year on the 11th. What can we do about that in the meantime?
Virginia Blanco
01:14:10
How can we register for the live trainings?
Anna Daniels
01:15:07
Where can we view these slides?
Jennifer Gunn
01:15:50
We’ll return to these questions in the chat in the Q&A about tot start.
