Provides that a school board must award high school course credit to a student for dual credit coursework, unless evidence about the course's rigor and content shows that it does not address the relevant Illinois Learning Standard at the level appropriate for the high school grade during which the course is usually taken, and that credit shall satisfy certain requirements under Code for that course. Provides that a superintendent may limit the number of academic credits a student may earn from dual credit courses if certain requirements under the Code are not being met.
