• To qualify to attempt credit by exam, a student needs to score an

    • 85% or higher as the final grade for the current course
    • 85% or higher on either the regents exam for that course or the local final

    Once a student has qualified, Mr. Schindler (math department coordinator) provides them all of the work that would be covered for the school year for the course.  He does not provide answer keys.  The only work collected from them at the end of the process is your toolkits.  That is the project mentioned in the description of this process in the Program of Studies and Parent/Student handbook.  You also must take the regents exam or local final for that course during the regents week in August. 


    Successful completion of the course is measured by if

    • you score an 85% or higher on the Regents exam or local final exam and
    • toolkits are satisfactory.

    Then the student is awarded credit (no grade for the course, only the final exam) and can be enrolled in the course that follows in September. Mr. Schindler will notify the counseling department in late August about the successful completion of Credit by Exam.
