Out of District Courses

Please review this information regarding being approved for out of district credit. If you are a current RHS student, you are welcome to contact your counselor to discuss taking a course out of district. If you are an incoming RHS student and currently in 8th grade, please contact your middle school counselor to discuss.

Reasons out of district courses can be approved:
•    Credit recovery

•    Course advancement (for math only)
•    Course does not fit or conflicts with Redmond High School schedule

Students must apply for approval before starting a course. Review information about out of district credit process and complete the Microsoft form. Only requests completed through the Microsoft Form will be accepted.


Interested in taking an out of district course?

Though it is not required, if you are interested in taking an out of district course, please follow the steps below. For out of district courses needed as a prerequisite for RHS courses for the 2023-2024 school year, the deadline for turning in Out-of-District forms is May 31, 2023. This applies to both RHS students and current 8th graders.

If you are completing an out of district course that is required for graduation, the course must be completed and the final transcript sent to your transcript no later than May 1st of your senior year.

1.    Choose Provider: we will accept credit from any OSPI Approved Provider, click here for a full list.
2.    Complete Appendix C: Once you have selected a provider and a course, complete Appendix C which you will attach to the Microsoft form (#4 on the Appendix C form asks that you attach a syllabus or other information for the course. Please do not attach the syllabus. If your Counselor would like more information about the course, they will contact you.)

3.    Apply for Approval: To request approval complete this Microsoft Form and attach Appendix C. You must log in with your LWSD credentials to be able to submit your request. DO NOT pay for or begin an out-of-district or online course until you receive approval from RHS.

4.    Transcript: Once the student completes the course, they must request an OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT be mailed directly from their out of district provider to the Redmond Counseling Center. We must receive the transcript no later than AUGUST 15, 2023, to move your student to the next level class.


Out-of-District Credit Considerations:

•    YEAR-LONG COMMITMENT: Registration is a year-long commitment and students will not be allowed to switch classes because their grade doesn't meet their expectations. Once the school year begins, schedules are final. Additional online classes will not advance/change your schedule mid-year.

•    NCAA REQUIREMENTS: If you plan to play a sport at a Division I or II college/university, it is your responsibility to check with the NCAA to see if the Out of District course you chose is approved.

•    REGISTRATION: For RHS course registration for the 2023-24 school year, every student MUST register for the next course in the sequence. Once their transcript is received from their out of district provider in August, the student’s schedule will then be changed to the next course.

•    MULTIPLE OUT-OF-DISTRICT CREDITS: If a student plans to take more than one course, they will need to submit multiple forms.

•    MAXIMUM OUT-OF-DISTRICT CREDITS: Students are not allowed to take more than 3.0 total credits outside of LWSD during their high school career, so please plan accordingly.
