The Board of Education encourages students to advance academically at a pace appropriate for them. Therefore, it shall permit advanced placement in college, either on a full or part-time basis, for high school juniors or seniors who are exceptionally able and motivated academically.
When such individual programs meet with the approval of the school administration, the student may be released from high school attendance on a full or part-time basis, and shall be awarded a high school diploma after evidence is received that s/he has met, through college work, any necessary academic requirements for graduation.
