High school credit will be awarded to students who enroll in and complete approved courses offered by accredited colleges and universities, as follows:

  1. A student who wishes to participate in college courses must meet specific academic, grade level and course-work requirements as set forth by the Superintendent.
  2. A student must get approval from the Superintendent prior to enrolling in a course he or she wishes to submit for high school credit. The course content, equivalency of instruction, and time requirements must be approved in advance by the Superintendent. In the case of students with disabilities, the above must also be approved by the Committee on Special Education (CSE).
  3. One high school credit will be awarded for a three- or four-credit college course.
  4. Students must receive a passing grade in the college course in order to receive high school credit.
