Board Credit
Board Credit is no longer an application process of picking and choosing courses and submitting for Board Credit.  Board Credit are PDExpress classes that are deemed college level type courses and are submitted on an annual basis to the School Board for approval of Board Credit.  Once courses are approved by the School Board, the class title is modified in PDExpress to include “BC Approved” and then Board Credit is awarded.  If a similar titled course is less than 12 hours, then I put “NBC<12” in the title and no Board Credit is awarded.
