Currently, Learn Everywhere legislation has not been introduced in Georgia. 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 local board of education may choose to grant or exempt Carnegie unit credit for out-of-classroom learning for a student in grades 9-12 provided there are assessment procedures: to demonstrate course equivalency, and/or; for a proficiency test, and/or actual classroom performance to determine mastered skills.
Academic Credit for Community Service
Community Service I, II, III, and IV are elective courses that satisfy credit requirements toward graduation.
