The board of education encourages students to advance academically at a pace appropriate for them. Therefore, it shall permit advanced placement in college, either on a full or part-time basis, for high school juniors or seniors who are exceptionally able and motivated academically.

The administration shall develop, and the board of education shall approve, criteria and regulations pertaining to students who may be accorded advanced placement privileges.

When such individual programs meet with the approval of the school administration, and have been formally approved by the board, the student may be released from high school attendance on a full-time or part-time basis, and shall be awarded a high school diploma after evidence is received that he/she has met, through college work, all necessary academic requirements for graduation.
