Currently, Learn Everywhere legislation has not been introduced in Oregon. 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.
Student driven initiatives for earning high school credit for out-of-classroom learning:
Students can obtain credit for learning that takes place outside the classroom through documented proficiency or mastery of identified standards. Standards include state academic content standards and essential skills/career-related learning standards, industry-based or other national or international standards.
The method for accruing credit must be described in a student’s personal education plan. Districts decide whether to award credit for prior learning.
