  • Carnegie Credit Application Information

    Dear parents/guardians,

    Gwinnett County Public Schools has released the Carnegie Credit Decision Form for eighth grade students in the GCPS Parent Portal. Carnegie units are the credits awarded to students for successful completion of high school courses. Gwinnett County students must earn 23 Carnegie units of credit in order to graduate from high school. Northbrook eighth grade students may earn Carnegie units for passing any of the following approved high school level courses while in middle school: Algebra 1, Accelerated Algebra 1, Physical Science, and Spanish 1. Please review the directions below to complete the Credit Decision Form in the Parent Portal.

    Please note that ALL eighth grade students are encouraged to accept the credit for the High School Physical Science course. Students who are enrolled in the two-year Spanish 1 course are encouraged to accept that credit, if they feel they are ready to move into Spanish II. Students who are in Algebra 1 have two options. Students who have been recommended to repeat Algebra I in ninth grade should NOT accept the credit for Algebra 1. Students who have been recommended to take Geometry in ninth grade are encouraged to accept the credit for Algebra I.

    If you need further clarification regarding whether your student should accept a credit or not, please reach out to your child's math teacher.
