OPTION II

The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) recognizes and acknowledges that all students will
not achieve the New Jersey Student Learning Standards in the same manner and/or with the same level
of success (N.J.A.C. 6A: 8-5.1(a) 2). While CCTEC believes that the best educational experience possible
for our students is participating in courses offered at our school, we acknowledge that students may
also choose to make individualized decisions about their course selections that will allow them to take
additional courses or more advanced courses during their high school years. To this end, CCTEC allows
for students to engage in individualized learning opportunities outside of the traditional classroom.
These opportunities are stimulating and challenging and enable students to meet or exceed the New
Jersey Student Learning Standards. This is commonly referred to as, “Option II.” For more information
