SLSPA ILP Course Challenge Testing Procedure
Students who are enrolled in English Language Arts ILP Program and accessing curricula through the Spark Program have the opportunity to challenge that course by demonstrating competency. Rules for challenging a particular course are listed within the Spark program and are available for ELA 10, 11, or 12 only. Procedures are in compliance with SLCSD Policy I-2 as a Nontraditional, Blended Learning, competency-based learning program. (I-2-II-H)
These test results will help the teacher determine the student’s mastery of CORE competencies, or if there is additional instruction needed in particular areas. Teacher may exempt a student from certain course assignments that the student has demonstrated sufficient mastery, and assign remaining course work appropriate to the student’s academic need. In all respects, students must demonstrate mastery of CORE requirements for each course before credit will be issued.
