LIT Dual Credit Pathways

LIT can help your district attain CCMR indicators by assisting students in meeting TSI criteria, completing CTE (9 hours) and/or ELA/Math courses (3 hours), attaining industry certification, all the way up to earning an associate’s degree while in high school.

If you are interested in adding any LIT Dual Credit pathways to your course offerings, please contact us and we will work with you to create pathways that are tailored to your district’s needs. 

In this guide, you will find over 27 suggested pathways that span 12 different career clusters and 20 programs of study. These are suggested pathways and may be modified to meet the specific needs of your district. The crosswalks created within this guide are aligned with TEA’s Programs of Study to give your district options for achieving CCMR indicators, as well as provide your students with an array of CTE options for beginning their post-secondary studies while still in high school. Many of these pathways even provide students the opportunity to complete a post-secondary credential before graduating from high school!
The App Development and Entrepreneurship program of study prepares CTE learners how to plan, direct, and coordinate the management and operations of public or private sector organizations with an emphasis on the development of computer applications and technology integration. Through this program of study, students will learn the skills necessary to formulate policies, manage daily operations, analyze management structures, and plan for the use of materials and human resources. Learners in this pathway will have the option to further obtain industry certification in Apple's swift programming language.
The Programming and Software Development program of study explores the occupations and education opportunities associated with researching, designing, developing, and testing operating systems-level software, compilers, and network distribution software for medical, industrial, military, communications, aerospace, business, scientific, and general computer applications. This program of study may also include exploration into creating, modifying, and testing the codes, forms, and script that allow computer applications to run. Learners in this pathway follow a comprehensive coding curriculum which prepares students to obtain industry certification in Apple's Swift programming language.
