Public high schools; graduation requirements; credit for work-based learning experiences. Requires the Board of Education in its graduation requirements to permit students in locally approved internships, externships, apprenticeships, credentialing programs, certification programs, licensure programs, and other work-based learning experiences to receive credit, up to a full course load, based on time spent in such programs. The bill also requires the Board to permit students in grade twelve to earn the equivalent of a full course load and to substitute each credit earned in such a program for a standard unit of credit in English, mathematics, science, or history and social science.
