Information on recovering lost credits

Students that have previously not passed a required course for graduation have multiple ways in which that credit can be redeemed. Students can work in Credit Recovery either during school or after school, depending on the child’s schedule.  This is an online computer program that allows students to make up work from missing six weeks.  Another option for redeeming lost credit is summer school.  Summer School registration opens in May.  Further information will be announced though the class Canvas pages.
