Currently, Learn Everywhere legislation has not been introduced in Nevada. 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
Work-based Learning Programs
A student enrolled at a public school must be allowed to apply one or more credits toward the total number of credits required for graduation from high school if the student successfully completes the number of hours in a work-based learning program required by regulation of the State Board to earn such credits. Any credits earned for successful completion of a work-based learning program must be applied toward the pupil’s elective course credits and not toward a course that is required for graduation from high school.
Academic Credit for Community Service
High school students who successfully complete an approved community service project may apply one elective credit toward the total number of credits required for graduation. A student may not receive credit for the completion of a community service project if the project duplicates a course of study in which the student has received instruction.
