OPTION II:In addition to Option I, students may pursue credits from the Graduation Requirements chart in a more independent manner, rather than “in the seat.” Option II offers alternative paths to credits that meet or exceed the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards and are based on student interest or career goals.Students may elect to apply for HCRHS credit or advancement of a course level through distance learning, independent study, HCRHS Summer Institute, college coursework or coursework taken outside HCRHS. All learning opportunities as allowed by Option II must be pre-approved by the counselor, academic area supervisor, the Supervisor of Counseling, the Director of Curriculum, and the Principal, under N.J.A.C. 6A:8-5.1(a) 1.II.
