PENNSYLVANIA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION PROGRAMS OF STUDY – In accordance with the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act of 2006 (Act), all Postsecondary Institutions receiving funds under the Act are required to award college-level credit or equivalent clock hours to a matriculated student and apply that credit toward the completion of the approved Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) Program of Study, leading to an industry-recognized credential or certificate at the postsecondary level, or an associate or baccalaureate degree. The purpose of this Agreement is to ensure that students make the transition from a school entity (Steel Center) to another school entity, college or university or a business/industry without experiencing delays in or duplication of learning. This Agreement sets forth the terms and conditions for the awarding of college-level credit or equivalent clock hours to students who complete the approved PDE Program of Study at a Secondary School so that those students can seamlessly continue their education in a related Program of Study at a Postsecondary Institution.  This agreement outlines the general conditions between secondary and postsecondary institutions.
