A student who, after receiving instruction in a nongraded school, enrolls in the District on a full-time basis may be awarded academic credits from the District provided the student demonstrates appropriate academic proficiency to the School Principal. No grade shall be assigned for any such credits awarded and the official school transcription shall indicate when credits are awarded for home schooling.
Proficiency in subject areas is to be determined by tests administered by the respective Department Chairman. Any dispute or question as to a proficiency determination shall be referred to the appropriate Building Principal. The Principal’s decision on a student’s proficiency will be final.
The amount of credit will be determined by the Department Chairmen on the basis of proficiency with a recommendation made to the Building Principal. Satisfactory proficiency for a specific course will be given the grade of “P” for passing with no letter or numerical designation of level of proficiency. The transcript for the instruction period will show the course title for which proficiency was established and that the course was taught in a nongraded school.
