232.2462  Definition of "credit".--

(1)(a)  For the purposes of requirements for high school graduation, one full credit means a minimum of 135 hours of bona fide instruction in a designated course of study which contains student performance standards as provided for in s. 232.2454. The Articulation Coordinating Committee shall determine the number of postsecondary credit hours earned through dual enrollment pursuant to s. 240.116 and which satisfy the requirements of a district's interinstitutional articulation agreement according to s. 240.1161 that equal one full credit of the equivalent high school course identified pursuant to s. 229.551(1)(f)6.

(b)  The hourly requirements for one-half credit are one-half the requirements specified in paragraph (a).

(2)  In awarding credit for high school graduation, each school district shall maintain a one-half credit earned system which shall include courses provided on a full-year basis. A student enrolled in a full-year course shall receive one-half credit if the student successfully completes either the first half or the second half of a full-year course but fails to successfully complete the other half of the course and the averaging of the grades obtained in each half would not result in a passing grade. A student enrolled in a full-year course shall receive a full credit if the student successfully completes either the first half or the second half of a full-year course but fails to successfully complete the other half of the course and the averaging of the grades obtained in each half would result in a passing grade, provided that such additional requirements specified in school board policies, such as class attendance, homework, participation, and other indicators of performance, shall be successfully completed by the student.
