Credit Recovery is now available in Floyd County Schools. Credit Recovery is not a course to help students to improve their credit rating but rather a way for students to stay on track for graduation. Credit Recovery is a new program that will enable students, who have missed passing a class by just a few points, the opportunity to recover the credit for the class. Credit Recovery opportunities will be offered each Intersession period in Floyd County Schools.
Credit Recovery is for a student who received a final grade of 60 - 69 in a core high school course at a Floyd County high school during the previous semester. Core classes include: math, science, language arts and social studies. Students may attempt to recover credit for up to two courses during an Intersession. The cost for Credit Recovery is $50.00 per course. Credit Recovery opportunities will be available at each Floyd County high school.
To successfully achieve credit recovery for a course, a student must complete the Credit Recovery assignment as determined by the assigning teacher and satisfy any time-for-time or attendance requirements. Students signed-up for Credit Recovery must be present the first day of Intersession and on time. The student must attend each day for the entire school day during the Intersession period unless the Credit Recovery assignment is completed ahead of schedule. Students taking one course must complete the Credit Recovery assignment by the end of the Intersession period. A student attempting to regain credit for two courses during an Intersession will be allowed to complete assigned work for one of the courses during the next Intersession if the student is unable to complete the assignments for both courses during the first Intersession period.
Credit Recovery is designed to help students to remain on track to graduate on time. Failure to graduate on time has been identified as a contributing factor in many young people leaving school before graduation. Therefore, Credit Recovery has been added to help lower the number of students failing to complete their high school education. The program also will save time and money for students when compared to making up course work in the summer or in the Floyd County Schools after school SPICE (Self Paced Interactive Curriculum Education) Program.
