Do you mind to share what you have done, overall, to make it hs credit worthy. Carrie answered my question regarding the Science and I am excited to be able to just add a few book and still use it mostly as written. I just wondered what other tweeks you may have made to make sure everything counts. Here is my plan:

~MtMM History as written using the Extension pack readers in place of the basic set
~MtMM Science as written, but adding the Chemistry 101 CDs and Carbon Chemistry to make it worth a whole year of HS Chemistry credit. My son loved the DNA and Evolution study so much that he wants to do it in addition to all of the Chemistry! I hope that won't be too much...and if it is, maybe we can do the Evolution/Creation and Genetics stuff over the summer.
~CLE English I/CLE Lit 1 along with dictation and Write with the Best II from MtMM
~Teaching Textbooks Algebra 1
~Rosetta Stone French 2
~MtMM Bible as scheduled
~Phys Ed

I am using MtMM for my 9th grader. This is what we are doing:

MtMM History w/extensions and adding All American History Vol.1 in order to get a full credit for US History

Economics: Adding in "A Bluestocking Guide: Economics" to the already scheduled "Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?" and "Common Sense Business for Kids" to get a 1/2 credit

English 1: Analytical Grammar, AGs Teaching the Essay, MtMM Poetry, Write with the Best Vol. 2, Dictation, CLE The Pilgrim's Progress Study Guide and two Progeny Press Study Guides: "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" and "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King"

Science: Apologia's Exploring Creation with Biology & Lab along with Steve Rosenoff's Instructional DVD

Math: Teaching Textbooks Geometry

Spanish: BJU Spanish 1 with BJU Instructional DVDs

Bible: MtMM as written

Home Economics: CLE

Physical Education: For the 1st semester she trained and ran in 5ks and a 10k. (My husband runs marathons so this was easy for us to work in)

I hope this helps! We live in TN and register with a church related school and when I submitted what we are doing they are the ones that suggested the extra text for History in order to get a full credit and also adding the extra Economics book we could get 1/2 credit for Economics.
