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.


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 fall session, you will receive an e-mail from the competency recovery director as to whether you need to register your student for the program or make individual arrangements with a specific teacher.   There is NO FEE to register for competency recovery.

What happens once my student is registered?

For the fall session, students who receive a registration form will have six opportunities to meet with a teacher after school.  Recovery session will be held from 2:30 - 3:30 on Sept. 7th, 11th, 12th, 18, 19th, and 21st.  The student will be given the location of the recovery session once registered and will do the work on site with a teacher to help.

Those students who are asked to make individual arrangements with a teacher will meet the teacher at an agreed upon time and complete the work on site or at home (depending on the content area).  They will need to submit completed work by Sept. 22nd.


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.
