Credit Flex Opportunities

Pursuant to SB 311, all school districts in the State of Ohio have been charged with fully implementing a plan that would enable students to earn units of high school credit based on a demonstration of subject area competency, instead of or in combination with completing hours of classroom instruction. The plan will be fully implemented with the 2010-2011 school year.

Students Will

1. Be able to show what they know and move on to higher-order content they are ready to learn and have not yet mastered.

2. Be able to learn subject matter and earn course credit in ways not limited solely to seat time or the walls of the school building.

3. Be able to experience educational options tailored to their interests and needs.

4. Be able to demonstrate creativity, explore academic and career interests and practice critical thinking.
