Procedure 2406P The Arts Mastery-Based Credit
Mastery-based credit can be used either for awarding credit in place of a traditional course, or for credit recovery purposes.
Successful Completion of Next Higher-Level Course
Credit may be awarded for a course when the student successfully completes the next higher-level course in a sequence that includes a natural progression of the state learning standards from the previous course. Mastery-based credit is available for:
- Beginning Pottery (0.5) if the student achieves a grade of C or higher in Advanced Pottery
- Beginning Glass Art (0.5) if the student achieves a grade of C or higher in Advanced Glass Art
- Beginning Digital Photography (0.5) if the student achieves a grade of C or higher in Advanced Digital Photography
Equivalency Course of Study
Students may receive credit for learning experiences outside of school that align to state learning standards, in accordance with Board Policy 2413 – Equivalency Credit Opportunities and WAC 392-410-300.
The district collects and annually reviews disaggregated data to see which subgroups of students are receiving mastery-based credit. If disproportionality is found, the district takes appropriate actions to ensure equitable access to these crediting opportunities.
