School board OKs class credit policy, 7 August 2008, Cumberland Times-News, Cumberland, Maryland
Mineral County’s policy on accepting class credits from outside sources will remain the same.
The Mineral County Board of Education Tuesday voted unanimously to approve the policy, Compulsory School Attendance/School Entrance, which includes an outline of which class credits will be accepted when a student transfers from either another school system or an accredited program.
The policy was of particular interest to supporters of home schooling, as it stipulates that credits will be accepted only from “all public secondary schools and credited nonpublic schools.”
“We do not accept credit for secondary courses taught in home schools,” Superintendent of Schools Skip Hackworth said when he presented the proposed policy to the board members last month.
It is up to each school (system) to decide what constitutes credit for the diploma that they issue. This is just an fyi for any readers with an interest in enrolling in the schools of Mineral County, West Virginia.
