Student Driven Initiatives

Currently, Learn Everywhere legislation has not been introduced in Florida. However, this page provides students and families with information about available options for earning credit for out-of-classroom learning. While Learn Everywhere allows for program providers to be approved to offer credit-bearing learning opportunities, for the programs listed below, it is the student’s responsibility to submit an application and complete the program requirements.

Academic Credit for Out-of-Classroom Learning

A student may earn credit upon the completion of an apprenticeship or pre-apprenticeship program registered with the Florida Department of Education.

Academic Credit for Community Service

District school boards may develop guidelines to award up to one-half elective credit to students who complete a minimum of 75 hours of nonpaid voluntary community or school service work. Credit may not be earned for service provided as a result of court action. School principals are responsible for approving specific volunteer activities.
