The practice of aligning curriculum and instruction to offer a seamless career pathway transition between courses or schools is called articulation. An articulation agreement is a written one, and one such agreement is between a school district and a postsecondary program such as a community college. This agreement creates a sequence of progressive, nonduplicated education leading to technical skill proficiency, a credential, a certificate or a degree. For example, when a school district articulates a course with a community college, a student can earn dual credit, at the high school and at the college, by meeting certain grade criteria. This is a good way for a student to earn college credit without incurring the financial expense.
Escondido Union High School District currently maintains the following articulation agreements, some with Palomar College, and others with Mesa College (IMPORTANT: Please contact your school counselor to confirm college eligibility as the following list is subject to change):
Escondido High School
Orange Glen High School
San Pasqual High School
