In meeting the needs of the students, a student may earn credit through performance testing for course work which is ordinarily included in the school curriculum. Students wishing to receive credit by testing shall have the approval of the superintendent [or designee] prior to taking the test.
Testing for credit may only be utilized prior to the offering of a course. Once the course has begun, students must attend the class and complete the required work for credit.
No grade will be given for credit obtained through performance testing and the credit will not be involved in computing the student’s grade point average (GPA).
