Board Policy “For students to receive core credit for previously taken online credits from an outside accredited educational institution, the District will determine which class in the Peoria Unified School District (PUSD) course offerings match the class taken. Once the matching class is identified, the student must demonstrate proficiency on the corresponding PUSD course assessment”-I-3300 IHBHD September, 2012
