BOSS Credit Flex Program

Ohio’s Credit Flexibility Plan (Taken from the Ohio Department of Education Website)

Ohio's plan for credit flexibility is designed to broaden the scope of curricular options available to students, increase the depth of study possible for a particular subject, and allow tailoring of learning time and/or conditions. These are ways in which aspects of learning can be customized around more of students' interests and needs.

Students may earn credits by:

  • Completing coursework;
  • Testing out of or demonstrating mastery of course content; or
  • Pursuing one or more “educational options” (e.g., distance learning, educational travel, independent study, an internship, music, arts, after-school/tutorial program, community service or other engagement projects and sports).

Credit flexibility is intended to motivate and increase student learning by allowing:

  • Access to more learning resources, especially real-world experiences
  • Customization around individual student needs
  • Use of multiple measures of learning, especially those where students demonstrate what they know and can do, apply the learning, or document performance

The Buckeye Online School for Success will be accepting student credit flexibility proposals for the first semester of the 2015-16 school year until September 4, 2015. If you have any questions, please contact Jason Duke ( at ext. 1212.
