Policy 2404

Procedure: Science

The district will manage the assessment process so that students seeking competency-based credit can demonstrate competency/proficiency in science. Students may demonstrate competence in the following ways:

  1. The student may recover up to one science credit following a failed or incomplete science course if the student meets standard on a state assessment in science;
  2. The student may recover up to one science credit following a failed or incomplete science course if the student meets standard on an end-of-course exam for a science course (where an end-of-course exam is available), or
  3. The student may recover up to one science credit following a failed or incomplete science course if the student meets standard on another approved state alternative that meets the graduation requirement.
  4. The student may obtain up to one Science credit for passing a district created assessment that is aligned to state learning standards, such as a portfolio of student work. Students do not need to have attempted and failed a course before being eligible for this option.

Additionally, the student may demonstrate competency/proficiency in a science subject and be awarded credit if the student achieves a C or higher grade in the next-higher level course in that science subject or closely related subject.
