Placement or Awarding of Credit for Children Returning to School from Home Instruction
A child returning to a division school from home instruction shall be placed or awarded credit based on the following
- For enrollment in grades K-8, the child shall be placed at the appropriate grade level as determined by the school administrators. Age of the student and a review of the course work completed during home instruction will be considered as proof of achievement. The child may be required to take examinations in order to determine the appropriate grade level.
- For enrollment or credit in grades 9-12, a child shall be required to take examinations in each course for which they wish to receive credit, provided those courses match up with courses offered in the high school course catalog. In order for credit to be awarded, the child shall take and pass a final examination which was required of students enrolled in the same course offered at the high school. Credit shall not be granted unless the child has been instructed at home the entire school year. A maximum of 11 credits earned by home instruction can be applied toward the requirements for a division diploma. A grade of pass (P) shall be granted for credits earned by home instruction and any such credits shall not be included in determining the grade point average of a student.
