IMPORTANT MESSAGE RELATED TO CREDIT RECOVERY:
We have less than six weeks of school until the end of the 2017 - 2018 school year. If your child has NOT recovered a failed course and/or courses by the end of the year, it can cause promotion/graduation issues for the future. They may have to retake the course in their schedule next year or they may not be promoted to the next grade level. We still have the GOLD computer lab (1.204) during 4th period for your child to work on and complete their CR course. The final computer lab day for credit recovery will be Friday, May 11, 2018. Thank you for supporting our interventions to accelerate our graduation rate and promote excellent student achievement at Grayson HS.
It is our continuing goal to ensure that the parents and students at Grayson High School have the most up-to-date and relevant information regarding graduation and course recovery. Below, you will find multiple links designed to inform all stakeholders of the options regarding recovering credit if a student would like to make-up a course that he/she previously failed.
With the options, it is imperative that the student and family understand the multiple advantages and disadvantages that come with each option. If you have questions after reviewing the different options, please do not hesitate to email Dr. Sharon Butler (Counseling Department Chair, firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Byron Howard (email@example.com).
The credit recovery program is used to recover a failing grade and to get students back on track for graduation. The purpose of the credit recovery program is for students in all grades (9th – 12th) to receive the opportunity to complete previously failed course work using the self – paced GaBOE CR Virtual Learning Modules. The learning modules are designed and approved by the state department of education. Credit Recovery works when students utilize their customized learning task to make – up needed courses (pre – test, assignments/ content, post – test, and final exam). The CR students are expected to stay on track for graduation after completion of the make-up course and/or courses.
The credit recovery program at Grayson High school will begin on Monday, January 15, 2018 for the second semester. If your child has failed a core subject (Math. ELA, Social Studies, or Science) between 60 - 69, they are eligible to recover the course under the program. Please check with the teacher or your child's counselor for confirmation of needing to make - up the course due to failure. The credit recovery program is used to get students back on track for graduation. The most successful students in CR are those who attend the computer lab daily during 4th period advisement.
