This message is to inform students and families that the Credit by Demonstrated Mastery or CDM process is beginning for the semester. 


The deadline for requesting an application and conference is September 2nd.  Any student applying or requesting a conference after this date will be deferred to next semester.

CDM allows students who already know the content of a high school level course to take a final exam or EOC and complete a project-based artifact to demonstrate their mastery of the content.  Students that pass both the assessment and artifact components will earn credit for the course.  

This process is for students that have NOT taken the course previously, are not currently registered for the course, and who already know the content. The course must also fall in the sequence of courses the student is already taking.  


If interested, the student must contact the school’s testing coordinator for an application and family conference date. 


Additional information about the Credit by Demonstrated Mastery or CDM process can be found on Pender County School’s website under Departments, Instructional Services, and AIG.
