Cincinnati Public Schools offers students opportunities to earn high school credit through a credit flexibility program.
"Credit flex" shifts the focus from evaluating student learning based on "seat time" to assessing students' demonstrated academic and skill level or performance.
With "credit flex," students have options to show what they know, earn credit(s), and move on to higher-order content. It is especially useful in providing rich learning opportunities for students whose interests (and /or performance) extend beyond the regular curriculum.
It is important to note that there are specific guidelines that students must follow to be considered for participation in Cincinnati Public Schools' credit flexibility program.
