Requirements for High School Teachers to Offer Dual Credit at Clackamas C.C.

The new articulation process hopefully will streamline communication, cut down on the length of waiting time for internal and external partners and ultimately be a very clear and easy way for new articulation requests to be established all while ensuring alignment. Attached, please find the New ACC Articulation Request Process that will walk through the process of submitting a new articulation application. Any articulations still in process for this spring term will finish up in Dual Enroll before the end of the school year.


Here are a few new things you can expect with the new ACC articulation process:




Current ACC instructors who have articulations up for renewal will be required to complete curriculum maps as well for each college course renewed. Renewal notices and instructions will be going out in the coming weeks to appropriate instructors.


Additional information about the ACC articulation process can also be found at

CTE Success Stories

Career Journeys is about helping students find their own path

Navigating the uncertainty of our formative years takes courage, curiosity, and outside support. A single conversation can spark a passion that leads to a lifetime of reward. Knowing where to start is often a challenge for students. The Career Journeys project seeks to help middle and high school students from across the state of Oregon–and beyond–to dream big. It’s all about exposing students to in-demand career pathways through “near-peer mentoring”.

This innovative approach to learning acknowledges that students often find it easier to relate to individuals close to their age. All our profilees are in the early stages of their careers. It is our hope that Oregon’s students can see themselves in the video profiles, lesson plans and website materials.

The stories we selected profile Oregonians who navigated the public school system. During their interviews, we touch on some of the challenges they faced when navigating their own career journeys. We cover the present, of course, but also, the past decisions that lead our profilees to where they are today. We invite students to discover their own pathway through this shared exploration of the next generation of Oregon’s leaders.
