Steps to Becoming a Partner School
The first step to becoming a partner school is for teachers to apply to become a UWHS teacher for the course or courses they want to teach. Not every course accepts teacher applications every year.
Once a teacher has been approved and trained by the UW department offering the course, he or she is eligible to teach the course for UW credit.
Schools and school districts that plan to offer UW courses through UWHS sign an interlocal agreement with UWHS in August before the school year begins.
Note that the approval to teach the course stays with the teacher. If the teacher changes schools, their former school can only continue offering the course for UW credit if the new teacher goes through the approval and training process.
