Students transferring into The Franklin School of Innovation from another school, private or public, a home school, or an alternative school may receive credit toward graduation for courses successfully completed in the sending school.
Students transferring from a public school or an accredited private school into Franklin will receive:
- Credit for all courses approved by the sending school
- Weighted credit for all courses designated by the sending school system as Honors or AP
Students transferring from a home school or a non-accredited private school may receive credit toward graduation for courses, based on the following guidelines:
- Nationally standardized test results: If a homeschool student scored at or above the national norms on the language arts, math, science, and social studies sections of a properly administered standardized test, one unit of credit will be assigned for each of the four subject areas. Note that the standardized test cannot be administered or scored by a parent, guardian, or relative of the student.
If standardized test scores are not available, the Executive Director or designee will review documentation to determine acceptance of credit. Documentation may include transcript/report card from an online course, detailed lesson plans, originals of student work, tests/quizzes administered, and evidence of attendance. A placement test administered by The Franklin School of Innovation may also be required for credit acceptance.
Grades will be recorded as “Pass” (P) or “Fail” (F).
Grades and credits will not be included in the calculation of GPA or class rank.
