Supplemental Course Academy

                The Supplemental Course Academy (SCA) gives school districts and other public schools an MFP allocation related to the cost of high school credit courses.  It is individualized to the needs of secondary students and is provided outside the traditional secondary school.

Funds allocated through SCA will target the following types of courses for high school credit:

•             Career and technical preparation

•             Academic work required to achieve TOPS

•             Advanced coursework not available at the school due to limited resources

•             Dual Enrollment

•             Intensive remediation for students struggling to stay on pace for graduation

The SCA registration portal can be accessed at http://lacourses.net/.
