The LHSAA teammate, FreeRecruitingWebinar.org has updated their in-service webinar. Please note that these NCAA changes will not affect high school eligibility. The LHSAA accepts any credits approved by the Department of Education.
Division 1 and 2 credit recovery rules are now identical:
To be used toward initial eligibility, nontraditional courses must meet the following criteria:
1. Courses taught through distance learning, online, credit recovery, etc. need to be comparable in length, content and rigor to courses taught in a traditional classroom setting. Students may not skip lessons or test out of modules. Thou course must be four-year college preparatory.
2. All courses must include ongoing access between the instructor and student, as well as regular interaction for purposes of teaching, evaluating and providing assistance. This may include, for example, exchanging of e-mails between the student and teacher, feedback on assignments, and the opportunity for the teacher to engage the student in individual instruction.
3. Any course taken must have a defined time period for completion. For example, it should be clear whether the course is meant to be taken for an entire semester or during a more condensed time frame.
4. Nontraditional courses should be clearly identified as such on the high school transcript.
