Credit Recovery: Grades 7-12

Credit Recovery is an opportunity for students to recover two high-school course credits. Students may take one course per session. Students should contact their school’s summer program administrator for additional information. The total number of students that can attend will be impacted by the number of teachers at the school available to work this summer.

Eligibility

  • Students are eligible to enroll in a credit recovery course if they receive a grade of NM at the end of the school year.
  • Students may not take a course for new credit.

Algebra 1

  • Students who have passed Algebra 1 may take the Credit Recovery course to improve their understanding and skills before the next school year.
  • No additional course credit will be awarded.

Expunging Grades

Parents or guardians should work with their student’s counselor before the end of the first quarter of the 2021-22 school year.

Middle School

Middle school students can retake Algebra 1 over the summer at their projected high school. Rising 7th or 8th grade students can expunge one of the passing Algebra 1 course grades. This must happen before the end of the first quarter of the 2021-22 school year.

Rising 9th grade students
  • The Algebra 1 course and grade that was taken during the 2020-21 traditional school year can be expunged before the end of the 1st quarter.
  • High-school credit-bearing course work taken by rising 9th grade students during the summer may not be expunged (Regulation 2408).
