TOPIC STATEMENT
a. Description Performance-based credit is any credit earned other than the traditional classroom setting with a regular or special education teacher.
b. Types of credits Performance-based credits include, but are not limited to, online coursework, courses offered by the Oldham County School District apart from the regular school day, early-bird classes, dual credit, post-secondary education courses, and other enrichment opportunities.
c. Expectations Students wishing to receive performance-based credit on their transcripts must have express written permission from the principal.
d. Grade determination The student’s final grade for the course will be determined by the teacher of record for the course.  The OCBE grading scale policy will be used.  Only College Board Advanced Placement courses and dual credit courses will use the weighted calculation.
e. Appeals process The decision to grant performance-based credit lies with the principal.  The parent and/or student can appeal the principal’s decision to the SBDM Council where the final decision will rest.  The parent or student must submit the “Performance-based Credit Appeals Form” to the principal no later than 72 hours prior to the SBDM Council meeting in which it will be presented in order for it to be included in the agenda.  The student must be present at the Council meeting in which his or her appeal will be heard.  The parent(s) of the student can be present as well.  The Council will notify the student of their decision within 72 hours of the appeal being heard.
