High School Credit Recovery

Credit Recovery refers to a student passing and receiving credit for a course that he or she previously attempted but did not succeed in earning academic credit towards graduation. Credit recovery often differs from “first time credit” in that the students have already satisfied seat time requirements for the course in which they were unsuccessful, and can focus on earning credit based on demonstrating mastery on the content standards for the particular course. A credit recovery program provides “an opportunity for a student to retake a course in which he or she previously was not academically successful in earning credit towards graduation.
