Summary: Dr. Kendra King, Director of Student Services and Achievement, will present the Locally Awarded Verified Credit (LAVC) Review Panel item for Board consideration.

The State Board of Education revised Emergency Guidelines to remove barriers to earning a verified credit for students who continue to be impacted by ongoing pandemic conditions.

The emergency guidelines allow students enrolled in any high-school credit-bearing course that was eligible for a verified credit in the fall of 2020 to earn a locally-awarded verified credit through a locally-determined verification process.

According to School Board policy, IKFA-Locally Awarded Verified Credits, the School Board appoints review panels of at least three educators to consider evidence of the student’s achievement.

Students enrolled in high school credit bearing courses at Buford, Charlottesville High, and Lugo-McGinness Academy may use the flexibility of the guidelines to earn a locally verified credit. Attached are the proposed lists for each school's local review panels who would verify students meet the criteria.
