Aromas-San Juan USD | BP 6146.11 Instruction
Alternative Credits Toward Graduation
Students may challenge a course through successful completion of a department-developed examination which covers course objectives. The district shall not use results from the General Educational Development test or other state or national tests for this purpose.
(cf. 6146.2 - Certificate of Proficiency/High School Equivalency)
(cf. 6155 - Challenging Courses by Examinations)
(cf. 6172.1 - Concurrent Enrollment in College Classes)
3. To satisfy the district's driver education and training requirement, a program approved by the Department of Motor Vehicles which offers driver education and behind-the-wheel instruction through a driving school or licensed independent driving instructor in accordance with Vehicle Code 12814.6
(cf. 6143 - Courses of Study)
4. For credit toward the district's physical education requirement, participation in district interscholastic athletic programs carried on wholly or partially after regular school hours (Education Code 51242)
A student shall be eligible to satisfy graduation requirements in this manner only if the interscholastic program entails a comparable amount of time and physical activity. This does not apply for the state-mandated 9th grade physical education requirement.
(cf. 6142.7 - Physical Education)
(cf. 6145.2 - Athletic Competition)
Upon receiving advance, written application by the student or his/her parent/guardian, the Superintendent or designee shall determine whether completion of the proposed alternative means would satisfy course requirements for graduation and what documentation shall be required, if any, to verify the student's successful completion. The Superintendent or designee shall make the final determination as to whether the student's completion of an alternative means is sufficient to satisfy the district's graduation requirements.
When a grade is assigned by a private school, postsecondary institution, or other educational institution for completion of coursework, that same grade shall be awarded by the district provided that the Superintendent or designee has determined the alternative course to be substantially equivalent to a district course.
