Continuing with the 2011-2012 school year, the students at Triad High School will have some additional options for earning credit toward high school graduation. The options available fall under the banner of ‘Credit Flexibility’ or CFP. In simple terms, credit flexibility “enables students to earn units of high school credit based on the demonstration of subject area competency instead of or in combination with completing classroom instruction hours. With CFP, high school students can earn credit in three ways, or in a combination of these ways:
1. By completing traditional coursework in a traditional setting.
2. By testing out of a course and earning credit without having to have the “seat time” in a regular classroom setting.
3. By pursuing one or more “educational options” (e.g., Aventa, PSEO, Dual Enrollment, independent studies, internships, correspondence school, etc.).
This program provides students with an opportunity to expand their education outside of the traditional classroom setting. CFP is designed to be an opportunity not a requirement for graduation. Triad High School students who receive credit for a CFP will have completed a detailed application process outlining learning goals and expectations; received prior approval from the High School Review Panel for their learning activity; stayed within the agreed upon timetable; and met rigorous, measurable standards as defined in the High School academic content standards or ones specific to their particular CFP.
