Students in grades 9-12 may earn up to two credits (2.0) through correspondence courses. An exception may be made by the appropriate counselor and/or administrator [EEJC (Local)]. The course must be taken through Texas Tech University or, in individually approved cases, the University of Texas at Austin. Counselor and parent/guardian approval is required to sign up for a correspondence course. The student and parent/guardian are responsible for the costs associated with a correspondence course (regardless of the grade). Grades will be posted on the student’s academic achievement record (transcript) and are not computed in grade point averaging or class rank. Correspondence courses will not reduce the required number of courses which must be taken in a semester.
