Credit Recovery

Course Description

This course allow students to retake a course to receive original credit in order to graduate high school.  In addition, students can remediate a course to improve a grade to meet their A-G requirements for College and/or University admissions.  The APEX learning system uses a digital curriculum to personalize learning, actionable data to inform instruction, and success management combine to ensure you are learning.

Enrollment

You are assigned courses based on your counselor’s request. However, you will also need to be an advocate for yourself and make sure you are taking the correct courses you need to graduate or remediate. You must complete a minimum of two courses in one semester to stay enrolled in the class.

Attendance and Participation

Daily participation is an essential part of the student’s grade and an important element in the success for all students in this class.  Students are expected to be in class on a daily basis and on time to class.  Students are expected to do at least 10 hours a week of work on the APEX learning system (5 hours of in class work and 5 hours outside of class work).   Non-participation, tardiness (See Student Agenda), absences, truancy, suspensions, and not following class rules will reflect negatively on the student’s grade and can result in being removed from the class.
