Our Voices are Making a Difference

Springfield is a busy place these days, with bills moving and deadlines approaching at a steady clip. Included in all the movement is the progress we’ve seen by supporting more equitable access to Dual Credit classes.

I’m glad to say that the bill to boost equitable access to Dual Credit courses and support the educators who teach them is up for final approval in the Illinois House this week. Now is the time for us to show Springfield the widespread support for this bill from advocates just like you.

Join me and contact your legislators to support Dual Credit students and educators by supporting HB5506.

This bill makes many positive steps for Dual Credit students and educators across Illinois. It will help put more educators on the path to teaching Dual Credit courses and allow more students to benefit from the rigor of these college-level courses.

Districts across the state should be allowed the flexibility to launch and grow Dual Credit programs with their available teachers while still respecting the quality standards of traditional Dual Credit coursework. This bill allows them to do just that.

Thank you for standing with us.
