Roxbury college, nearby high school to team up

Grads may get diploma, associate’s degree

Students at Madison Park Technical Vocational High School would be able to enroll at Roxbury Community College, enabling them to earn both a high school diploma and an associate’s degree, under a proposal being announced Tuesday by Governor Deval Patrick and Mayor Thomas M. Menino.

The proposed partnership, if approved by the Boston School Committee and the RCC Board of Trustees, would start with a small group of students this fall and would eventually allow every 11th and 12th grader at Madison Park to enroll at RCC, according to a Patrick administration official with knowledge of the proposal.
