Currently, Learn Everywhere legislation has not been introduced in Rhode Island. 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.

Expanded Learning Opportunities
200 R.I. Code R. §200 RICR-20-10-1.3.2(H)

Students can fulfill academic, graduation, or credit requirements for out-of-school high quality expanded learning opportunities and experiences. The enrichment opportunities are meant to address diverse learning needs and capabilities, individual interests, and build connections to the community beyond what is provided during the regular school day. Local boards may develop and implement policies and protocols to provide students with opportunities for experiential learning, community service, and skill building.
