If you follow some sort of a nontraditional schedule for high school, whether because you have a student taking DE classes, or who is very involved in an extracurricular, or who is accelerated, or if you school year round, or if you do 4-day weeks, or block scheduling, or unschool, or follow any other scheduling/credit assigning method that is outside of the 36 week/5 day a week school year schedule, I'd like to hear from you. What is your unique schedule? Why did you choose it? How is it working for you? How do you assign credits, assuming you may not be starting a class in the fall and finishing in the spring? Do you count hours and assign the credit when they are done? Or decide how much material constitutes a credit, and assign the credit when that material is completed? Likewise with deciding grade levels: If your student is finishing the material for one "grade" at a different time than May/June, do you consider them in the next grade "early" (or "late")? Or does that really not matter for anything, other than PSAT/NMSF status? I may come up with additional questions, but I could use some inspiration/experience in thinking outside the box for high school scheduling for my rising 9th grader.
