Procedure 2407P Health and Physical Education 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 Principles of Biomedical Science 1 (first semester) (0.5) if the student achieves a grade of C or higher in Biomedical Science 2 (second semester).
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.
Physical Education Excusals
The district will manage the assessment process so that students seeking mastery-based credit can demonstrate mastery/proficiency in knowledge of physical education because of excusal from participating in physical education on account of physical disability, employment, religious belief, or because of participation in directed athletics or military science or for other good cause.
