Legal Opinion 16-02 Addresses Dual Enrollment and AB 288 (CCAP)

17 Mar 2016

Legal Opinion 16-02, issued by the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office, addresses two key legal issues: CCAP partnerships under AB 288; and districts’ ability to operate outside of the CCAP framework (that is, either develop or continue existing non-CCAP partnership agreements and other dual enrollment, non-cohort programs in general).

“This Legal Opinion represents the judgment of the Chancellor’s Office and reflects experience in audits and minimum condition reviews on the subject of dual enrollment. It also provides legal analysis and opines on areas that require statutory interpretation.”

The Chancellor’s Office has also issued Guidelines addressing apportionment eligibility for CCAP Partnership Agreements. The Guidelines include a list of required elements that should be used as a guide in the preparation of these agreements/contracts.

Both documents can be found on the CCCCO’s Legal Division website.
