Fall 2016 High School Credit Recovery End of Semester Information
About This Page
Thank you for your hard work and flexibility this fall as we continue to build and evolve our credit recovery program. Your feedback and comments have been useful and appreciated. This document explains our end-of-semester procedure.
What Constitutes Complete in Credit Recovery?
As has always been the case in MTDA’s credit recovery program, complete means that ALL required lesson quizzes (80% mastery), module post assessments (65% mastery), the final exam (65% mastery), and mastery assignments (65%) have been completed to the mastery level.
Completing all assignments is required for a recommendation of credit in the program.
PLEASE NOTE: Student that do not complete a semester DO NOT carry over progress from semester-to-semester. This has been the case at MTDA since Fall 2013 and continues even with the Fall 2015 reboot of the program.
End of Semester
The end of fall semester is Friday, January 20, 2017, at 5:00 pm. We will announce this day to students via the website on Wednesday, January 18, 2016, to let them know of the pending deadline.
AGAIN THIS SEMESTER: Based on site feedback, we have built into the program a new flexible course ending protocol, acknowledging common themes typical to the credit recovery environment. FOR ALL ACTIVE STUDENTS, we will grant an automatic extension until Friday, February 3, 2017; no request is required, no questions asked.
If you have students who you know now that they will NOT complete their course (moved out of your school, have transferred to another program, etc.), please put a drop request into GeniusSIS
After February 3rd, MTDA’s academic coach staff will evaluate all remaining students and put in drop requests for those that have not completed courses.
If you have students who will NOT complete their course and you want to get them enrolled in Spring right away, either in the same course or a different course, please put in a drop request into GeniusSIS with a reason above.
The February 3rd deadline is absolute. No additional extension is available after that date, nor is progress transferrable from semester to semester. Please note, however, that students are still able to take module pre-assessments that could qualify them to be exempt from units that they previously completed during the prior semester.
