Course Waivers and Course Test Out/Assess Out

Determinations regarding whether a course will be waived or credit will be granted is determined by the school building principal in consultation with the student, dean and a teacher from the specified content area.
Students/parents who are interested in any of these options must consult with their dean and determine how the alternative option will be incorporated into a plan for meeting District Graduation Requirements. All alternative options must be approved prior to beginning any work or beginning a testing process.
