The Wyoming City School District has developed a credit flexibility plan that will enable students to earn high school credit by: a) completing coursework, b) testing out of or demonstrating mastery of course content, c) pursuing one or more educational options in accordance with the District’s Credit Flexibility plan, or d) any combination of the above.

Students choosing to take advantage of this opportunity must complete the Wyoming High School Credit Flexibility Application and submit it to the High School Guidance Office no later than March 13, 2014.  Applications will be available on the High School website on January 31st.

To access the application go to www.wyomingcityschools.org, click on High School and then on Guidance/College Counseling.  All applicants will receive notification of approval within ten calendar days in order to accommodate appropriate schedule changes. Any student who applies after March 13 will not be eligible for the credit flexibility option during the 2014-2015 school year.

Please note that this plan and application process also apply to summer physical education classes. Therefore, if you wish your child to take physical education during the summer, the above-mentioned application must be completed no later than March 13th.

Templates for the most requested Credit Flex classes are available online and in the High School and Middle Schools Guidance Offices:  Lakota and CCD summer PE and online Health (Brigham Young University HLTH041).  Parents are responsible for researching the costs and dates of the classes.

For detailed information about how credit flexibility may apply to your child’s academic planning or to obtain an application, please contact Monica Moore in the High School Guidance Office at 206-7114.   Applications are also available on-line.
