Some programs have Career Pathways articulations with Lake County high schools and/or articulations with Lake-Sumter Community College or other postsecondary institutions. Articulations allow students to receive credit for courses that do not have exact matches at the articulating school, but which the accepting institution has agreed to accept as credit. All articulations have formal agreements with the articulating institution, which are on file in the Lake Tech Curriculum Office.
Statewide articulations between technical centers and community colleges articulating credits for selected programs were established in 2006. These statewide articulation agreements allow students to earn up to the maximum number of articulated credits based upon similar curriculum as determined by the accepting institution.
The articulations in place between Lake Tech and Lake-Sumter Community College are for Lake Tech’s Accounting, Administrative Assistant, Early Child Care, Fire Fighter, Law Enforcement, Practical Nursing, EMT and Paramedic programs. Some of these agreements offer more articulated credit than the statewide articulations. See program information in this catalog for individual agreements. Contact a guidance counselor or instructor for more information about these articulations.
