Marana Pathways / Alternative Learning Options
The Marana Unified School District is dedicated to challenging all students to achieve academic and personal excellence in a rigorous, relevant and supportive learning environment. We are committed to providing multiple opportunities for students to meet their unique and individual learning needs.
Students who desire to create additional room in their daily schedule for other classes may take an on-line course for credit advancement. In addition, students who have previously taken and failed a course may take an on-line course for credit retrieval. Students may enroll in one course at a time.
The Marana Unified School District will accept all credit earned though this Credit Options Program as appropriate to meet graduation requirements. Grades earned in on-line courses will be computed as part of a student’s overall GPA.
Students who take distance learning courses, on-line courses, or charter school courses from institutions other than MUSD may have the credit accepted as a core subject credit if:
- The course for which core subject credit is sought is offered by the secondary school in the District which the student attends and
- The student earns a grade of sixty (60%) percent or better in an examination in the core subject administered by the District at a time and place of the District's choosing
Students who are interested in taking a distance learning course for credit advancement or credit retrieval should make an appointment with their counselor to discuss their options.
