Hall Board of Education looks at new course credit policy
Placeholder Image
A new statewide policy presented Monday to the Hall County Board of Education allows more flexibility in how students obtain credit. The county school system has policies in place to handle credit acceptance, but the state board of education has rewritten a policy for local systems to adopt. The new state version applies to all students, regardless of what year they have entered ninth grade, and allows them to test out of subjects, eliminating “seat time requirements.”
