18A:61C-1. College-level instruction for high school students
1. The Commissioner of Education, the Commission on Higher Education, in consultation with the Presidents' Council, shall establish a program to promote increased cooperation between the State's high schools and institutions of higher education. The objective of this program shall be to increase the access of our State's able high school students to the educational resources available in our institutions of higher education. This program shall supplement the efforts of local school districts to provide appropriate education to their students and shall not relieve a district of any obligation established by statute or regulation.
The program shall increase the availability of college-level instruction for high school students through courses offered by institutions of higher education at their campuses and in high schools. The program shall seek the involvement of all institutions of higher education, two-year and four-year, public and nonpublic, and all school districts, including those which are not located in close proximity to an appropriate institution of higher education.
