What is Outreach Education?
Cloud County Community College is one of nineteen publicly supported two-year colleges in Kansas. As mandated by guidelines established by the Kansas Board of Regents, Cloud County Community College provides post-secondary educational opportunities to a twelve-county service area. The counties served by Cloud County Community College are Clay, Cloud, Dickinson, Jewell, Lincoln, Mitchell, Osborne, Ottawa, Republic, and Smith.
It is the policy of the Kansas Board of Regents (KBOR) and Cloud County Community College to encourage high school students to take advantage of postsecondary education opportunities by enrolling in postsecondary courses while still in high school or participating in home schooling. K.S.A. 2000 Supp. 72-11a01 through 72-11a05 provide for these opportunities through the Kansas Challenge to Secondary School Pupils Act. High school students in 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades are eligible to take concurrent enrollment classes provided they meet specific course pre-requisites and placement testing requirements. For more information about concurrent enrollment classes, email April Benne.
