The purpose of the credit-by-examination program is to allow students to accelerate to courses that will challenge them without having to take pre-requisites that cover information they have already mastered. See the campus counselor for more information.
Two Types of Credit-by-Examination:
Students that score at least 80% on any exam can attain subject acceleration/credits. In order to qualify, a student cannot have any prior instruction in the grade level or course for which they are seeking credit. A student may not attempt to earn credit by examination for a specific high school course more than two times. The test score will be entered in the student's transcript and the student will not be required to take the end-of-course assessment for that subject.
A student may be given credit for an academic subject in which he or she had some prior instruction if the student scores at least 70% on a criterion-referenced test approved by the school district board of trustees for the applicable course.
