(Alternative pathways for attaining High School Graduation Credits)

General Statement: Option II establishes alternate pathways for students of Montgomery High School to satisfy graduation requirements and meet the New Jersey Core Curriculum Standards in accordance with New Jersey Administrative Code {N.J.A.C. 6A:8-5.1 (a) l ii}. Option II alternative experiences are voluntary. Students may fulfill the requirements for graduation by pursuing credits earned through the traditional classroom environments, alternative learning experiences availed through Option II or through a combination of both programs.

Option II permits students to engage in a variety of alternative learning experiences which are stimulating and intellectually challenging, enabling them to fulfill or exceed expectations set forth by the academic department’s Core Curriculum Content Standards. Students may take part in Option II alternatives by participating in the following: student exchange programs, interdisciplinary or theme-based programs, independent study, accredited college coursework, concurrent enrollment at colleges and universities, on-line and distance learning opportunities.

Transportation, personal safety and well-being, specialized equipment and any and all costs not otherwise provided by Montgomery High School will be the responsibility of the student and or parent/guardian.

Rationale for Option II:

1. Credit Recovery - To make up a subject failed during regular school session:

  • Credits are awarded after the recovery course and the respective MHS proficiency assessment have been successfully completed. Successful completion requires the minimum passing grade.

  • The course must have a minimum of 60 clock hours to recover five credits.

  • A (P) pass or (F) fail will be recorded on the student’s transcript and a number grade of 60 will factor into the G.P.A. for a passing grade of (P).

  • It is the student’s responsibility to have appropriate grade reports forwarded to the Guidance Office upon completion of the external course in order to receive credits.

  • For the purpose of meeting prerequisites, the summer school grade and the grade from the full year course will be averaged, but not recorded on the transcript.

2. Original Credit – To earn credits outside of MHS for academic advancement or meet graduation requirements.

  • Credits are awarded after the course/program and the respective MHS proficiency assessment have been successfully completed. Successful completion requires the minimum passing grade. Option II courses will only be included on the student’s transcript after all coursework is complete.

  • A (P) pass or (F) fail will be recorded on the student’s transcript and will not affect G.P.A. If the course is taken at an accredited college or university, a letter grade will be recorded on the student’s transcript; this will not be calculated into the G.P.A.

Application for Option II: Montgomery High School students must complete an application which includes a proposal through the Montgomery High School Guidance Department PRIOR to enrolling in a course. The request must be submitted for consideration to the department supervisor and school principal. Any course taken by an MHS student without the prior approval of administration will NOT be granted course credits.


Proficiency assessments are used for placement purposes and required for Option II credits to be received. These assessments will be administered by the MHS department supervisor or designee. These assessments are aligned with New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards and may take the form of an exam or portfolio of completed work.
