DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

As the start of the school year approaches, officials want to make sure parents know about the Move On When Ready Act (MOWR).

It allows students in the 9th grade and up to take college courses for free. 

All parents need to do is contact school administrators and let them know they are interested. 

Dougherty County Superintendent Dr. David Mosely said that the system had about 300 dual-enrolled students last school year.

"It's a great opportunity for children who are ready, to take on that responsibility, it gives them a head start, and best of all they have two years of academic instruction, and it doesn't cost their parents a dime," said Dr. Mosely.

Mosely said that many seniors graduate high school and get an associate's degree at the same time.
