Equivalency Credit Options
Student achievement is best served when students receive content aligned to clear, consistent and rigorous standards; have curriculum that is relevant to them; and form supportive relationships with caring adults. Quality Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs provide the rigor, relevance and relationships students need to achieve. OSPI and the Northshore School District recognize the need to create clear and articulated crosswalks between traditional academic courses and CTE courses. NSD provides all students with diverse opportunities to meet graduation requirements and prepare for college and career life.
The following list of courses are approved high school equivalency courses that may be used to meet graduation requirements. While these equivalencies meet district graduation requirements, they may not satisfy college admissions requirements in all cases. Students are advised to check with individual colleges for clarification regarding the use of particular equivalency courses. It is also important to note that while an equivalency course may satisfy more than one graduation requirement, no course can be worth more than the total amount of credit is has been assigned.
If you have further questions regarding course equivalencies, please contact your school's counselor.
