Students who wish to participate in the credit flexibility program will be required to complete a Credit Flexibility Application in which they will identify their educational goals, identify the standards they will demonstrate, and create a timeline for completion. The purpose of the credit flexibility option is to develop learners who plan their own research, learning objectives, and an academic agenda whereby they will attain those objectives outside a traditional classroom. The policy will provide a personalized educational opportunity for all students in which they will identify, acquire, and demonstrate the proficiency of their knowledge through standards to earn high school graduation credit. All Credit Flexibility Applications must be reviewed and approved by a committee of Fairfield City School District personnel. The Credit Flexibility Applications, which are available for download (below) and are also available in the Guidance Office, must be returned to the Guidance Office by August 1 for a full-year course or a first semester course and by December 1 for a second-semester course.
