Inver Hills Community College’s Leading and Developing Readiness (LADR) program helped Rosemount High School earn the 2012-13 Star of Innovation Award from the Minnesota Association of Secondary School Principals. The award was presented to RHS Principal John Wollershiem and Assistant Principal Kimberly Budde.
LADR allows students who place in the 30th to 70th percentile in their class to take college preparatory courses and, ultimately, college-level courses for credit at their high school. The credit courses fulfill requirements for the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum and are specially developed to meet both high school and college requirements. Credits transfer easily to Inver Hills, other community colleges and four-year universities.
LADR is offered at nine area high schools, including Apple Valley High School, Burnsville High School, Gordon Parks High School, Lakeville North High School, Lakeville South High School, Prior Lake-Savage High School, Rosemount High School, Simley High School and AGAPE High School.
Rosemount High School was one of 22 middle and high schools from around the state that were considered for the Star of Innovation Award.
