Are middle school students able to take a fully online course for high school credit?

Any high school course listed in the Middle School Course Catalog which is offered at the middle school is eligible for high school credit and will be treated as an equivalent. Students who meet the Policy 8200 Digital Education eligibility criteria for fully online courses may enroll in HCPSS digital education. The following exceptions apply:

  • Students transferring into HCPSS who do not have the appropriate level course at their middle school.
  • Students enrolled in a pilot middle school offering Spanish 2 who transfer to a middle school where the course is not available.

It is recommended that middle school students do not accelerate math by enrolling in fully online course instruction.
