A. If a pupil who was previously enrolled in a charter school or school district enrolls in a charter school in this state, the charter school shall accept credits earned by the pupil in courses or instructional programs at the charter school or school district. A charter school governing board may adopt a policy concerning the application of transfer credits for the purpose of determining whether a credit earned by a pupil who was previously enrolled in a school district or charter school will be assigned as an elective or core credit.
B. A pupil who transfers from a charter school or school district shall be provided with a list that indicates which credits have been accepted as an elective credit and which credits have been accepted as a core credit by the charter school. Within ten school days after receiving the list, a pupil may request to take an examination in each particular course in which core credit has been denied. The charter school shall accept the credit as a core credit for each particular course in which the pupil takes an examination and receives a passing score on a test designed and evaluated by a teacher in the charter school who teaches the subject matter on which the examination is based.
