    SUCCESS THROUGH ACCEPTING RESPONSIBILITY/GRADUATION OPPORTUNITY
     

    The STAR/GO Credit Recovery Program is an alternative education placement designed to assist students in recovering credit due to academic failure.

    Our program offers all core courses as well as electives needed for graduation. Students may work in the traditional ‘packets’ or GradPoint computer based learning at a guided  pace. This will ensure that the course is finished by the end of the semester. Most work is done in class but homework may be required.

    Students are required to complete the entire course in order to earn credit. Any student dropped from the program will NOT receive credit for the course in which he/she is enrolled. Students are expected to make progress throughout the semester. Classes are taught on an individualized independent study basis. Students and parents have full access to support staff as well as links to outside resources. Parental involvement is strongly encouraged.

     

    PROGRAM GOAL 

    The primary goal of the STAR/GO/Credit Recovery Program is to make up credit needed for graduation and to transition students back to the regular school program, however many students and parents request to remain in the program until graduation.

    Space is limited in the STAR/GO/Credit Recovery Program. Any student who does not work during class time, has poor attendance, disruptive behavior or fails to make progress will be removed from the program.
