IK – Earning Of Credit

Students can earn course credit by demonstrating proficiency/mastery of the required coursework and material. Mastery is defined as: sufficient evidence of attainment of the required content, concepts, and skills of a particular course. Student assessment of mastery is the responsibility of the building principal.

Credit will be awarded upon satisfactory demonstration and proficiency/mastery of the required course competencies. Additionally, credit may also be awarded if a student is able to demonstrate learning experience in compliance with the district-specified curriculum and assessment standards.
