Stark State and Kent State start online classes on January 17th. If your student is taking an online CCP class, make sure that your student checks their blackboard and/or flashline account to make sure the course is listed on their course list. If the course is not listed in blackboard and/or flashline, they are not registered for the course. The process for signing up for an online CCP course (through the college) is as follows:
Meet with Mr. Trenger to discuss what course would like to be taken online
Mr. Trenger will fill out an enrollment form for the student to send in to Ryan Palmer at Stark State
The student MUST email the form to Ryan Palmer at Stark State otherwise they are not enrolled.
Mr. Trenger is at Marlington every Thursday and has been accepting scheduling appointments all year to help students get registered for courses
Remember to have your student fill out the Intent Form if interested in taking a CCP course next school year. This MUST be completed by April 1st, 2023 by the State of Ohio otherwise you will be shut out of taking a CCP course. This form has to be completed every school year.
Follow the CCP flow chart (attached to this email) to follow the necessary steps to be ready to take CCP.
