Students earned 5,432 U credits in District 196 schools last year
A University of Minnesota statement shows that students in District 196 earned a combined 5,432 college credits from the institution last year.
The credits valued at more than $2.5 million were all earned through the College in the Schools (CIS) program, which offers advanced courses taught at their high school by regular high school teachers.
There were 1,299 students enrolled in CIS classes last year from the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District's five high schools. The district paid the university $145 per course for students to enroll.
