Student CredentialingTraditional Proficiency Students accumulate  Students are graded units of assessed to ensure instruction to graduate they have acquired through “seat time” high standards of knowledge and skills regardless of skill defined by minimum levels acquired or state diploma grades assigned, and requirements a standard diploma is matched to state regarded as the end standards. This is the point of the high minimum school experience. requirement. We work forward from there.

  65. 65. Notes to Presenters Leslie: If asked about having to create your own curriculum as opposed to getting a published kit, talk about the benefits of going through the process of breaking down standards and building modules, how much better you know the purpose of the activities and the standards. Travis: Talk about how it has changed your approach to the overall view of what education is, and how it has changed your activities as a father. Rinda: Don‟t talk too much. Steve: Go get „em!
