NEW - Senior Year Plus Programs (including PSEO)

Senior Year Plus was established in May 2008 when the Iowa legislature passed House File 2679. The enacted statute creates a new Iowa Code Chapter 261E that consolidates and standardizes several existing programs that have the potential to provide college credit coursework to high school students. Providing more opportunities for students to earn college credit while still in high school was an early proposal of Governor Chet Culver.
Senior Year Plus programs include:
  • Advanced Placement ®
  • Post Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO)
  • Concurrent Enrollment
  • Career Academies
The Iowa Department of Education issued it's Senior Year Program Guidebook on November 11, 2009. Any and all homeschooling teens who think they might want to utilize one of the Senior Year Plus programs should read this guidebook.
