May a student receive credit through CDM for a course not offered at their school?
It depends. This is a local decision. DPI recommends that LEAs offer the CDM process for courses taught within the school district, even if they are not taught at all schools. It is not recommended that CDM be offered for courses not available within the local school district. Districts may consider partnerships with NCVPS to consider whether they have staff expertise within the district to offer CDM for NCVPS courses available to its students.
In Guilford County Schools, we provide CDM opportunities for any course we currently offer in Guilford County Schools, with some exceptions in Global Languages.
