Students of serious purpose or students seeking to accelerate their college program shall have college credit courses made known to them and, whenever possible, shall be encouraged in such study. Such programs are designed to expand and enrich academic opportunities to students, but not to replace Vernon Township High School graduation requirements.

It is the policy of the Board of Education that any college credit course taken through a “credit bank program” at any college agency or other school agency is done so with the following stipulations:

1. Such involvement is entirely voluntary on the part of the student.

2. Taking “credit bank courses” or other college courses should have authorization by the student’s parents. Such courses are additional academic courses and are not within the content of high school requirements.
