Competency Recovery Website Pic  Competency Recovery

The purpose of this program is to offer students an opportunity to recover a course competency for which they have earned a passing grade for the course, but have not fulfilled all of the course competency requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I know if my student qualifies for the competency recovery program?  

The student would have received a final course grade of CF instead of a numerical/letter grade.  You would likely also receive notification from the school counselor or the recovery program director.

 For the summer session (July 11 - 13, 2017), students with competency failures in English, Math, Science (including Health), and Social Studies can recover the competencies needed.  Competency failures for other classes can be recovered in the fall when we return to school.  More information for the fall session will be shared once school starts again in August.

 

How often does the competency recovery program run?

The program runs three times a year - summer, fall and spring.  Specific deadlines will be posted during each session.

 

How do I register my student for the competency recovery program?  

For the summer session (July 11 - 13, 2017), students should report to the freshman administrative office in the Academy Building between 8 am and noon.  A staff member will help them complete a registration form indicating the competency they need to complete.  There is NO FEE to register for competency recovery.

What happens once my student is registered?

For the summer session (July 11 - 13, 2017), students will report directly to the Media Center in the Academy Building AFTER registering in the freshman office.  There will be teachers from each subject area (English, Math, Science (including Health), and Social Studies) there to assist students with the necessary work.  Students will stay and complete the competency work in the Media Center.

What happens once my student completes the competency recovery program?

The original grade for the course will be reinstated on the student's transcript and credit for the course will be assigned.

What if my student does not participate in the competency recovery program?

The course(s) in which there was a competency failure will not be issued credit and may need to be repeated in full by the student if required for graduation.
