Report: R2i2 Local Approved Courses
The board voted to approve the presented elective course codes for the Richland Two Institute of Innovation (R2i2). The codes for the courses reflect teacher certification and Highly Qualified reporting requirements.


A Local Board Approved course is a course that is not listed in the State Department of Education’s Activity Code Book. The state allows school districts the flexibility to create Local Board Approved courses for elective credit. These courses allow us to meet school and student needs in our district.
