Credit Flexibility

Credit Flexibility (CF) is a student-driven/student-owned study option that provides customized learning of standards focused on a student’s interests and needs. Specifically, CF is a structured learning opportunity that allows students in grades 7-12 to demonstrate mastery of course standards through an approved plan with defined learning standards and goals, planned learning activities, and standards for evaluating student learning coordinated by a qualified educator. CF can:
  • broaden the scope of curricular options available to students,
  • increase the depth of study possible for a particular subject, and
  • allow for the tailoring of learning time by providing acceleration and convenience, resulting in more options for courses during the school day.

Is CF right for me?

Students who can “agree” to the following statements are ready for a CF course:
  • When it comes to learning, I am a self-directed person. 
  • I am the only one responsible for my own learning.
  • I am able to manage my study time effectively, and I easily complete assignments on time.
  • I am self-disciplined and find it easy to set aside reading and homework time.
  • I understand that I must maintain my status as a full-time student at all times during any CF program.
  • I understand that Rocky River City School District cannot offer monetary support, supplemental materials or other support, such as hardware or software support for my technology needs, for my CF opportunity.
  • I follow the rules and student code of conduct for the Rocky River City School District while working on this CF opportunity.
  • I will follow the recommendations made by the committee approving my CFP, and I will revise my plan according to the specifications of the committee.
  • I understand that, once approved, this learning experience will be graded, be calculated into my GPA, and become part of my high school transcript.
