Description

Eleventh and twelfth grade transfer students; graduation requirements. Requires any student who transfers to a public high school from another public high school, a nonpublic high school, or home instruction during the eleventh grade or between the eleventh and twelfth grades to earn the total number of standard and verified units of credit prescribed by the Board of Education as requirements for graduation but exempts such students from the requirement to earn the standard unit of credit in economics and personal finance or complete the virtual course required by the Board for graduation if the local school board determines that enrolling in the economics and personal finance or virtual course would result in the student's carrying a heavier than normal course load, enrolling in summer school, or failing to graduate in four years. The bill also exempts any such student pursuing the standard diploma from the requirement to earn the career and technical education credential required by the Board for graduation with a standard diploma if he earns one verified unit of credit in English and one verified unit of credit of the student's own choosing in excess of the minimum verified units of credit required by the Board for graduation.
