According to state and district policy, credit recovery is for students who have previously taken an initial, non-credit recovery section of the course and received a grade of at least fifty percent (50%) for the year. Students who receive a grade below fifty percent (50%) for the year in the non-credit recovery section of the course must re-take the course.
Failure of classes could keep a student from being promoted to the next grade level and/or graduating on time.
The credits needed to be classified at each grade level include:
Less than five (5) credits .......... 9th Grade 5 credits & passed Eng. 9 ....... 10th Grade
11 credits & passed Eng. 10 ............ 11th Grade 16 credits & passed Eng. 11 ............ 12th Grade
Students will not be able to use Credit Recovery to accelerate classes and/or graduate early. The Credit Recovery Grade will be averaged in with the student’s GPA. It will NOT replace a grade previously earned for the weighted and unweighted GPA, but it will replace the grade for the HOPE Scholarship GPA. A grade of 70 will be entered on the student’s transcript upon successful complete of the course.
Please note: Not all postsecondary institutions will accept credit recovery courses for credit and that the NCAA Clearinghouse will not accept credit recovery courses for credit.
HHS Teachers will be reaching out with more specific information for students in danger of failing for the year.
