I found this on the DOE’s website (
It is the Draft version of Additions/Deletions/Changes to the courses for
15-16 School Year. This is what it is showing for the course. It sounds
like it isn’t DOE law yet. J

25.44000 Essentials of Healthcare Course meets fourth science requirement;
Students who earn 1 unit of credit for this course shall also receive 1
unit of credit for Human Anatomy and Physiology, course number 26.07300
beginning for students enrolled in the 2014-2015 school year and subsequent
years. Course meets fourth science requirement; Pursuant to O.C.G.A. §
20-2-159.3 and State Board of Education Rule 160-5-1- .15 AWARDING UNITS OF
that students who earn a unit of credit for Essentials of Healthcare
(25.44000) will also receive a unit of credit for Human Anatomy/Physiology
(26.07300). This will be the first time a recommendation is being made to
the State Board of Education to award course credit for a CTAE course and
course credit for an associated academic core course that includes embedded
standards from an academic core subject area.

Have any of you heard about this yet? Hopefully, we will get some guidance
from the DOE before the end of the year.

Carolyn and Susan,

I was in a meeting today at Chatt Tech. This information was discussed and
is in IDA3 for next school year. Here is an example of one course. I know
that Marores has stated already that at a state CTAE meeting that this
information was presented to CTAE directors by Pam Smith.

While Marores and I don’t understand how this is not double dipping and
don’t agree that two credits should be awarded for the same course, I just
need to know what either of you have heard. Currently, we only post to
transcript a course that a student is enrolled in with a teacher involved
on one line of transcript history. When a course meets two area
requirements such as CTAE and Science, one course credit is on the
transcript under CTAE. The transcript audit shows that a science
requirement has also been met. However, another credit has not been awarded
meaning two credits for this single course which would mean two CIP codes,
two different department categories, etc. Does this mean that a student
could graduate this year and take only 22 credits because we would manually
update transcript history with another CIP code, course title, credit, etc.?

Of course, we use primary teacher override field for online, dual
enrollment, etc. courses. Would the same teacher’s name be on this added
credit in science in the example above? Is it expected that counselors will
simply add another entry to transcript history for these kinds of courses.
How does this impact the HiQ for the teacher? How does impact anything with

I am lost and confused….please note that this begins this school year. One
example is above.

Thank you for your help,
