The content-enhanced high school courses listed in the ATC Course Crosswalk have been found to be substantially equal to the introductory-level college courses indicated. Statewide teams of secondary and postsecondary subject area faculty compared the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for each high school course with the course descriptions, syllabi, and expectations of courses found in the postsecondary Workforce Education Course Manual (WECM). These courses are most often used in technical certificate and degree programs at public community and technical colleges.
If you have a suggestion for a course that is commonly articulated that is not listed on the crosswalk or if you feel that a course is not equivalent let the ATC staff know your opinion. Please submit a written request from your school district or college including:
The rationale for the request and any documentation of demand including local agreements and student participation
