Board Policy 08.113 deals with graduation requirements, and the changes will allow a committee to pro-rate elective requirements for students who transfer from a district where less credit hours per year are offered – districts that require less than 28 credits for graduation.
“Basically, the gist of this policy is, we’ve got a kid that only had six credits a year available to him … over at another school,” said Trigg County School Superintendent Travis Hamby. “They’re not a senior … but even if they take all the credits this year and next year, they’ll still be a credit short.”
Board Member Jo Alyce Harper made the motion to approve the motion on second reading, which Board Member Donnie Holland seconded. Board Members Sharon Simmons and LaVern Baker were absent.
The second addition to the policy states that transfer students will still have to “meet the yearly requirements of the District and meet all necessary graduation credit requirements.”
