TEST OUT Information

 

TEST OUT POLICY

Grand Ledge High School offers students a testing out process once a year over the summer months.  Students may choose to test out of an MMC required course to further their scheduling options throughout their years of high school.  Students must exhibit mastery of the course content by attaining a grade of at least 80% or B- on a comprehensive final assessment/paper/lab as required for individual courses.  Credits earned through the test out process will count towards graduation.

Step 3:  

Look to see if the course(s) requires extra materials.  Some courses have digital textbooks available for free. If other materials are required (such as novels, labs, etc) you need to submit a $50 deposit for those materials.  Payment can be made either by cash, or check payable to Grand Ledge Public Schools.  Submit all deposits to Mrs. Crouch in the HS Main Office.  Deposits must be paid before non-online materials will be distributed, and will be refunded when materials are returned.  Materials will be available for pick up in the GLHS Media Center from Tuesday, May 30 through Tuesday, June 13th. 

The Main Office is open Monday through Thursday from 7:00 AM - 4:00 PM, and on Fridays from 7:00 AM to 3:30 PM.  The Media Center is open Monday through Thursday, from 7:00 AM to 3:30 PM, and on Fridays from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

Step 4:

Make a note of the test out dates and times. You do not need to reserve a test time; select the one that best fits into your schedule and show up!  All tests will be administered in the High School Cafeteria.  If you are planning on testing out of more than one course, please plan to take them at different times.
