Credit Flexibility
An effective educational program is one that provides opportunities for students to customize aspects of their learning around their respective needs and interests.  Credit flexibility is one method to motivate and increase student learning by allowing access to more resources, customization around individual student needs, and the use of multiple measures of learning by shifting the focus from seat-time to performance.  Students can earn units of high school credit based on an individually approved credit flexibility plan.  The intent of credit flexibility is to meet increased expectations for high school graduation and the demands of the 21st Century.  Additional information about Yellow Springs’ credit flexibility options can be obtained through the Guidance Office.
