Credit/Grade Recovery Options

Students must earn 60 credits each school year to be considered on target for graduation.

At the completion of each grade a student should have the following credits:
 
  • 9th grade - 60 credits
  • 10th grade - 120 credits
  • 11th grade - 180 credits
  • 12th grade - 225 credits
 
When students fail classes they fall behind and risk not graduating on time. As soon as a student fails a course they should speak with their counselor to develop a plan to get them back on track.
 
Students who have earned D's in a-g courses should also utilize credit recovery options to clear their deficiencies.

There are a variety of options that students can utilize to help them recover their credits. The following may be some options to consider.
