Stay on Track with Credit Recovery
Teacher: Amanda Turner
The purpose of Credit Recovery is to provide students an opportunity to get back on track to be ready for graduation after failing one or more classes. The program is designed to help students catch up on their credits. Rather than retake the classes that they failed, students will do the course work for the failed class in an independent study room.
Stivers has led the district in getting students the most credits. Students must take either Credit Recovery or Summer School to make up failed classes. Summer school costs $25 and would be off-campus while Credit Recovery is free and worked into the student's Stivers schedule.
Who is it for?
Credit Recovery is for Grades 9 - 12. Ninth graders may participate after their 1st semester is complete. Students must have failed a course to participate.
Which courses is it for?
Credit Recovery is for courses that are Carnegie Unit Balanced, i.e. academic classes only - no magnet courses. These courses include:
- Algebra I
- Algebra II
- American History
- World History
- American Government
- Physical Science
- Language Arts 9-12
How does it work?
The student should make up classes as the failing grades occur. Don't delay and put recovering credits off until senior year. The Credit Recovery class itself is a silent environment. Attendance is mandatory. Students work independently and self-pace using a web-based program called APEX with the mentoring and guidance of the Credit Recovery instructor.
How to participate:
At scheduling time, a high school student who has failed a class should speak to Mr. Asadorian (Guidance Counselor) about working Credit Recovery into their schedule. The student will also need to fill out an application that their parents sign.
