The Community College League of California is sponsoring AB 288 (Holden), the College & Career Access Pathways Act (CCAP Act), legislation to reduce statutory restrictions that limit the development of dual/concurrent enrollment partnerships, and promote concurrent enrollment partnerships that target a broader range of high school students. While AB 288 has received unanimous support to date, the bill did take several amendments in the Senate Education Committee. Below please find a link to the summary of the bill as amended July 13, 2015.

As the bill approaches the Senate Appropriations Committee, the League and the Chancellor's Office will make the case that dual enrollment provides cost savings to students, families and the state. If you have questions, or to submit a letter of support, please contact Legislative Advocate Lizette Navarette (lizette@ccleague.org). Let's pass AB 288 and provide more students with early exposure and access to  college education!  AB 288 Summary here.
