    • *Grade Recovery (as described below) will be utilized for students who have not successfully completed assignments/homework for a particular course while in progress.

  • *Additional Information:

    Students enrolled in Grade Recovery can receive a passing grade in a course they did not pass on the most recent report card. Students complete parts of the course curriculum and/or assignments that contributed to them not passing. When a student completes the Grade Recovery their original report card grade will be changed to a passing mark of 60.

    Credit Recovery is defined as a block of instruction that is less than the entirety of the North Carolina Standard Course of Study for that course.  When Credit Recovery is exercised, the original record of the course being completed and failed will remain on the transcript.  A grade of pass or fail will be given for each credit recovery course.  The mark will not affect the student’s GPA.  Credit Recovery enables students to recover course credit; it is not intended for grade replacement.

    Repeating a Course will be used to refer to a high school course repeated via any delivery method when the entire North Carolina Standard Course of Study for the course is being taught to the student for a second time.  Students participating in Repeating a Course for credit will receive a grade and take the associated end-of-course assessment, if appropriate.
