    CHCCS Middle School CDM Choices The purpose of this document is to assist families and schools in understanding eligibility for accessing the Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM) process. The only courses eligible in this process are high school courses which must be completed in the appropriate sequence. For example, a student must be enrolled in Math 1 before applying to CDM Math 2.  Additionally, middle school students may not apply to CDM any high school course, other than a math or world language course, until their 8th grade year. Please note the exception of Career and Technical Education courses below.  Furthermore, for information on our World and Dual Language Pathways, please refer to this document: CHCCS Dual & World Language Pathways
