WHS credit recovery

Tuesday, May 27, 2008

Washington High School students who received a failing grade in a core class required for graduation will be given a second chance to pass the course provided they qualify.

The credit recovery program will be held June 2 -- 6 from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The purpose of the program is to provide individual instruction on specific skills of information that caused the student to fail a required class. To qualify for the program, the student must be carrying a 50 percent or high for the semester or be recommended by the teacher of the failed course. When the students show they are proficient in the areas failed, they will be given a passing grade. By not having to take the class over during the year, the student can stay on track for graduation.

There is no registration or cost. Students merely have to show up during the specified times and be prepared to learn. This is strictly a volunteer program. Students may come as many hours and for as many days as they choose. Attendance alone does not guarantee a passing grade. Proficiency will have to be shown.

In accordance to the 'No pass, no play" rule by the state associations regulating athletics and fine arts, they are quite specific in not allowing a student to participate if they fail a class, even if they are successful in summer school.

Report cards can be picked up in the high school office starting on Monday, June 2.
