Credit Recovery Website Pic Summer Credit Recovery

 

Students who fail a course with a 50% or higher may be eligible to recover those credits during the summer session program provided the courses are offered.  By recovering credits during the summer, it may allow students to return to their original class status.

 

In Order To Progress To: Credits Needed Prior To School Starting:
10th Grade 5 credits
11th Grade 10 credits
12th Grade 16 credits

 

Students who are successful in the summer session program have the following qualities:

* Minimum grade of a 50% - students need to have a reasonable foundation of the course material to compact the recovery process into the summer timeframe.

* Reasonable attendance - the summer session is short and excessive absences or tardiness will interfere with a student's ability to complete the required work.

* Independent worker - all of the courses require computer work, although some more than others.  Students will be expected to work independently and ask questions as needed.

* Motivated to earn credits - students who attend need to complete the required work and/or homework.  Simply being present is not a guarantee of passing the class.

* Limited need for Resource support - there is a Resource teacher available to assist students, but this does not replace classroom instruction or assistance from the certified classroom teacher.
