Credit Recovery and Grade Forgiveness
Need to make up credits or boost your GPA? Ask your school counselor about the options listed below. Please know that only grades of “D”s and “F”s are eligible for forgiveness, with the exception of “C”s earned in middle school.
Extended Learning Program (ELP): ELP is offered on our campus after school on Mondays through Thursdays from 2:00pm to 4:30pm. STUDENTS MUST REGISTER BEFORE THEY CAN BEGIN COURSES. All core courses (i.e., English, Math, Science, and Social Studies) are open to 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders. Courses will be taken via APEX – a computer‐based credit recovery program that allows students to work at their own pace until the subject matter is mastered.
A few points to be aware of: (1) students must finish all course requirements to earn credit or grade forgiveness; (2) students must earn a passing grade of “C” on the subject exam to earn credit; (3) students may not miss more than three days or nine hours of instructional time without prior approval from the ELP coordinator; (4) students may be suspended or removed from the program for not meeting the guidelines and procedures as outlined by the ELP coordinator and instructor(s); and (5) APEX courses do not meet NCAA credit requirements. For more information or to sign up for courses, speak with your school counselor.
