GHS Expands Dual Credit to Include Criminal Justice

 

 

This past week GHS Principal, Keri Allen, GHS Senior Counselor, Susan Swick, and GISD Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum, Keri Thoele, met with officials at Navarro College to discuss adding a Criminal Justice certification and possibly an additional Associate’s degree to the Groesbeck High School curriculum.  The Criminal Justice Department Head, Dr. Brad Richardson, was very excited about Groesbeck bringing this type of innovation to the high school. 

 

The 17-hour Criminal Justice Corrections Certificate would be an opportunity for students who want to serve a local law enforcement agency or who want to work in a correctional facility.  The certificate, which includes coursework in correctional systems and practices, community resources in corrections, and the juvenile justice system, would allow students to enter directly into most police academies, with the exception of DPS or a large metropolis that requires additional criteria.
