• VIII.          EXTERNAL EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES

     

    1. Online Courses

                Students may opt to take an online course through an accredited college/university and receive college credits.  The District will also accept online credit from an accredited high school or University online program.  Any course taken outside of Cherry Hill will not be reflected in weighted or unweighted GPA.

     

    1.   Credit Recovery

                Students who fail or lose credit for a required course are strongly encouraged to

                make the course up in the summer. This is true especially in sequential courses

                where prior knowledge is essential for future learning.  Grades are not averaged

                together.  Cherry Hill Public Schools do not offer summer school.  A list of area high

                schools and vendors and their credit recovery offerings is available from your School

                Counselor.

       

    1. College courses taken on college campuses BOARD POLICY 5460: Graduation

                Students may opt to take a college course through an accredited college/university                                                                               and receive college credits.  The student is responsible for all costs associated. The

                course will only appear on the transcript if it fulfills a graduation requirement.  

     

    1. Two three-credit college semester courses, or the equivalent, would be

    equal to a full year high school course.

    1. Prior approval to substitute college courses for high school courses

                must be received from the Principal.  The college course must meet the

                requirements of the high school course for which it is substituted.

    1. College courses taken in this manner will count toward graduation

                requirements, but will not be counted in class rank or weighted or

                unweighted GPA.
