Can a high school student earn high school credit(s) through fully online instruction?

Yes. Board of Education Policy 8200 Digital Education specifies the eligibility criteria under which HCPSS students may enroll in HCPSS digital education. Students seeking to enroll in a course should meet with their school counselor to discuss the readiness of taking a fully online course(s) and the appropriateness of the specific course(s) to be taken based on the student’s four-year plan to progress towards graduation.

Parents/guardians who enroll HCPSS students in a fully online course(s) without the approval of the school counselor are not guaranteed that the course(s) taken will be awarded high school credit. Please review the Fully Online Course Enrollment Guidance document for additional information.
