Description of Proposed Guidance Document Changes
In response to ongoing pandemic conditions, the proposed Emergency Guidelines extend the flexibility provided in earlier iterations of the document for the fall of 2020 to students who are enrolled in any high-school credit bearing course that was eligible for verified credit in the spring of 2021. These students may earn a locally-awarded verified credit if they: (1) pass the corresponding high school course; and (2) attempt the associated Standards of Learning assessment and receive a score within the 350 – 399 range; and (3) demonstrate mastery of the standards, competencies, and objectives of the entire course through a locally-determined verification process. Additionally, the proposed Emergency Guidelines respond to the systematic issues related to transfer students and students attempting to (re)test for verified credits required for graduation in the fall of 2020 or spring or summer of 2021. These students may earn two locally-awarded verified credits if they: (1) pass the corresponding high school course; and (2) attempt the associated Standards of Learning assessment and receive a score within the 350 – 399 range; and (3) have received targeted and sustained remediation on course content since having taken the course; and (4) demonstrate mastery of the standards, competencies, and objectives of the entire course through a locally-determined verification process. These Emergency Guidelines were approved by the Board on January 28, 2021, for immediate implementation.
