Policy/Regulation Revisions

IKF/IKF-R – Graduation Requirements


JJID/JJID-R – Student Physicals for School Athletics

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Purpose: To bring to the School Board the above policies/regulations for second reading.

In an effort to keep the School Board policies updated, members of the administration
and the Policy Review Committee will continually review the policies and regulations for
items that need to be added, deleted, revised, or in some cases, to update the language.
The referenced policies/regulations have been reviewed by administration and the Policy
Review Committee.

• IKF/IKF-R – Graduation Requirements – update policy to account for State of South


Dakota administrative rule changes in graduation requirements by amending the
basic high school diploma requirements and new requirements for three available
endorsements. The changes also include a soft implantation allowing current high
school students to also complete a personal learning plan in compliance with the
preceding graduation requirements. Update policy to comply with changes to state
laws regarding dual credit opportunities and graduation ceremonies.

• JJID/JJID-R – Student Physicals for School Athletics – revise policy to require an


annual physical for participants in high school athletics beginning the 2019-20 school
year. Require participants of middle school athletics to have a physical evaluation
prior to participation.

The policies/regulations have been posted for public review on the School District
website. No comments have been received.

Policy Review Recommendation to School Board: Approve second reading of the


above referenced policies/regulations.

5 B. Credit by Exam (Course Equivalency Exam)
6 For courses approved by the Department of Education through a waiver process initiated by
7 the District, the District will offer credit by exam.

8 Tests will be developed around course standards and the student must pass the exam with at
9 least 85 % proficiency on the first attempt for credit to be issued. Credit may be included on
10 the student transcript as a "pass" grade only upon achieving 85% proficiency or above and
11 may not be calculated as a part of a student's cumulative grade point average. Failed
12 attempts on the course equivalency exam may not be included on a student's transcript and
13 may not be calculated as a part of a student's cumulative grade point average. If a student
14 wishes to have a letter grade for the test out included on the student's transcript as a means
15 of scholarship eligibility or entrance into a postsecondary institution, a formal request may be
16 made to the school to have a course grade included. The course grade is a letter grade
17 assigned by the District that corresponds to the student's test score on the course
18 equivalency exam. The course grade may not be calculated as a part of the student's
19 cumulative grade point average. A roster of participants, including the students' name, grade
20 in school, district attendance center, and percentage on the completed exam before the start
21 of the next school year will be reported to the Department of Education. The District will
22 proctor and score the exam.
23
24 All credits received by exam will apply toward the 22 credit requirement.
25
26
27 C. Transfer Credits
28
29 Transfers from Accredited Schools
30 A student transferring into the District will be awarded credit for any courses taken from any
31 school accredited by the South Dakota Department of Education or by the regional
32 accrediting agencies. The credit will be accepted towards a specific graduation requirement
33 if the state code matches, or if a course content analysis is completed and the content of the
34 course taken matches the District’s adopted curriculum standards. The curriculum standards
35 are available on the District’s website.
36
37 One or more graduation requirements may be waived for senior students transferring from
38 another state, who have met the standards in that state, and who are unable to meet the
39 graduation requirements set by the South Dakota because of time and scheduling constraints
40 but not due to course failure.
41
42 Dual Credit Opportunities
43
NEPN Code: IKF-R
Page 7 of 10

1 Students seeking dual credit to apply towards both high school graduation and credit to an
2 institution of higher education or a post-secondary technical institute must first obtain
3 permission from the Building Principal/Program Administrator prior to enrolling in the
4 course(s). If approved, the course will be recorded on the student’s transcript and the course
5 score shall be used to calculate academic standing. The credit will be accepted towards a
6 specific graduation requirement if a course content analysis is completed and the content of
7 the course taken matches the District’s adopted curriculum standards, otherwise the credit
8 shall be accepted as an elective.
9
10 Transfers from Unaccredited Schools or Alternative Instruction
11 Placement and awarding of credit will be as determined by Policy JG – “Transfers from Non-
12 Accredited Schools.”
13
14 Credits received outside the school term
15 Credits earned by a student for courses taken from another school and outside the regular
16 school term will be accepted if the outside school is accredited by the South Dakota
17 Department of Education, or the regional accrediting agencies, and the student notifies a
18 school counselor of the credits sought prior to taking the course.
19
20 The credit will be accepted towards a specific graduation requirement if the state code
21 matches or if a course content analysis is completed and the content of the course taken
22 matches the District’s adopted curriculum standards. The curriculum standards are available
23 on the District’s website. Otherwise, the credits earned by the student for the transfer courses
24 will count as elective credits. The school shall notify the student in writing to explain the
25 reason the credits will not count towards a specific graduation requirement and provide the
26 student a copy of this policy and the applicable curriculum standards.
27
28 Credits received from certified treatment centers
29 Credits earned by a student while participating in a certified treatment center, if not accredited
30 by the South Dakota Department of Education, or by the regional accrediting agencies, shall
31 be reviewed by the Director of Curriculum and Instructional Services, or designee, to
32 determine whether the credits can be accepted, or whether the student should follow the
33 procedure for transfers from non-accredited school.
34
35
36 Credits received from institutions outside the United States
37
38 Student transcripts received from institutions outside the United States will be translated if

12 diplomas and transcripts.
13

19 administered up to two times. Upon successful passage of the coursesemester tests, the
20 letter grade will be posted on the student’s transcript and the course will be calculated as part
21 of the student’s cumulative grade point average. The semester tests must be approved by
22 the State and the District will proctor and score the semester tests. A roster of participants,
23 including the students’ name, grade in school district attendance center , and percentage on

27 F. Graduation – Special Education Students

29 education student and further recognizes that School Board approval of such curricula
30 meets the high school graduation requirements of the State upon the student’s
31 completion of said curricula.

34 special needs and abilities of the students in special education.
35 The School Board is committed to all students taking courses that challenge their individual
36 skills. It also recognizes the District’s responsibility to provide a free appropriate public
37 education to each student with disabilities based on their individual needs. The Individual
38 Education Plan (IEP) teams will develop a course of study for each student with an IEP to be
39 reviewed a minimum of annually. The course of study will outline the student’s coursework
40 toward the South Dakota High School Diploma Requirements and inform decisions based on
41 the individual student’s needs including measurable postsecondary goals. The IEP team will
42 determine, document, and ensure parent is informed at least one year in advance that the
43 student will graduate with a regular diploma or continue eligibility for special education
44 services until the earlier of when the student completes his/her secondary school program or
45 the 30th of June following the student’s 21st birthday. The Individuals with Disabilities
