120B.14 ADVANCED ACADEMIC CREDIT.
A district must grant academic credit to a pupil attending an accelerated or advanced
academic course offered by a higher education institution or a nonprofit public agency other than
the district, if the pupil successfully completes the course attended and passes an examination
approved by the district. If no comparable course is offered by the district, the commissioner shall
determine the number of credits which shall be granted to a pupil who successfully completes
and passes the course. If a comparable course is offered by the district, the board must grant a
comparable number of credits to the pupil. If there is a dispute between the district and the pupil
regarding the number of credits granted for a particular course, the pupil may appeal the school
board's decision to the commissioner. The commissioner's decision regarding the number of
credits shall be final.
The credits granted to a pupil shall be counted toward the graduation requirements and
subject area requirements of the district. Evidence of successful completion of each class and
credits granted shall be included in the pupil's secondary school record.
