This option aligns with the district ’ s mission to provide learning opportunities that meet the individual learning needs of each student .
A student interested in earning credit by assessment will follow the procedures outlined in the guidelines for awarding credit by assessment . The student will work through the requirements of the Credit by Assessment process with the appropriate school and district personnel .
If the student demonstrates proficiency in a satisfactory manner , the student ’ s transcript will show the course title , credit earned , and a course grade of “ P ”, therefore , a grade is not applied to the student ’ s district calculated GPA .
