Currently, Learn Everywhere legislation has not been introduced in Kentucky. 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

Performance Based Credit
Performance-based credits refer to credits earned by a student outside of the traditional structure of a 120-hour instructional course. In order to award such credits, districts must establish a policy for a performance-based system that:

  • provides procedures for developing performance-based credit courses
  • identifies related performance descriptors assessments
  • establishes grading and reporting procedures
  • specifies content standards as addressed in Kentucky’s Academic Standards
  • allows for students to demonstrate proficiency and earn credit for learning acquired outside of school or in prior learning experiences
  • allows students to pursue internships, cooperative learning experiences and other learning experiences in the school and community
