with Sponsoring Entities
School districts or governing boards of nonpublic schools may adopt a policy to allow students to earn course credit through education opportunities that take place outside the school building through a sponsoring entity.
Which students are eligible?
Students enrolled in grades six through twelve.
Who can be a program provider?
Entities that may submit proposals to offer educational opportunities include for-profit and nonprofit organizations, trade associations, and parents of a student, teachers, or administrators that partner with a school district or governing board of a nonpublic school.
Who approves provider proposals?
There is a two-part approval process. If approved by local school board or governing board of a nonpublic school, the proposal must then be submitted to the North Dakota K-12 Education Coordination Council for review and to the superintendent of public instruction for approval prior to implementation.
