5463 - CREDITS FROM NONPUBLIC SCHOOLS
In recognizing its responsibility to uphold the minimum educational standards of the State of Michigan, the Board of Education establishes the following policy and criteria regarding the acceptance of credits from nonpublic schools whether they be State-approved, nonapproved, or home schools.
For credit or course-work to be accepted for courses taken in such schools, assurance of compliance with minimum requirements established by the State must be provided.
Recognition of credits or course-work shall be granted when the proper assurance and the student's transcript has been received. The District reserves the right to assess such transfer students in order to determine proper placement and to be assured the student can demonstrate the learnings which are prerequisite to a placement.
Credits from nonpublic schools may be granted and placed on a student's transcript. Grades may be entered on the transcript or considered for class ranking at the discretion of the high school principal. Only grades awarded for courses taken at the District or in a manner described above may be considered in class ranking and for entering on the transcript.
