The credit recovery program is available for students who have failed a core course required for graduation, provided the student meets the minimum score of 55 for the course in question. The program is a self-paced, online digital program of study with a qualified teacher provided for additional support to assist students.

Students will begin their course work with a pre-test for the units of study to accurately identify which standards need to be targeted for mastery. Students may only be enrolled in one credit recovery course at a time and are limited to a maximum of two courses. Students who successfully complete their coursework will receive the appropriate credit and assigned a minimum grade of 70%, or a grade reflecting the accuracy rate for mastering the standards for the class the student participated. Students will be required to pass and complete the credit recovery course work by the final day of their session or a failing grade will be assigned. Students must complete a minimum of thirty seat hours in a credit recovery class but will have the option of using up to 35 hours of seat time over seven days.

Admission:

Classes will be limited to nine students in each credit recovery session. Enrollment will be filled on a first pay/first serve basis.
