2016 Summer Credit Recovery & Attendance Make-Up

2016 Summer Credit Recovery Program & Attendance Make-Up


Attendance Make-up:

Students who failed due to attendance can make up their hours in one of two ways:

1.      Monday through Thursday from 8:00am until 12:00pm (see weekly schedule below).  There will be a charge of $5.00 per class period recovered.  All students who are making up attendance will be registered in an

APEX course or will work on summer reading requirements.  All hours must be completed by the last day

of Summer School.

2.      Students who do not have any classes to recover academically who only owe for attendance may volunteer

to complete community service.  There are a number of opportunities which must be pre-approved by administration.  All volunteer hours must be performed at a non-profit organization.  Forms must be signed off by a supervisor and turned in.  Hours must be turned in every Monday or hours will not be counted.  There is NO charge for making up hours through community service. 

A maximum of 5 hours is allowed.


Registration: Students should bring their report cards with them to registration. Once students are registered, they will begin working in their classes. Registration will take place based on their grade placement for the 2015-2016 school year.  Please park in the bus parking lot and enter through the double doors.  DO NOT ENTER THROUGH THE FRONT OFFICE.  Registration is as follows:
