Program Details

Important Notes

  • Before June 1st, PLEASE be sure to fill out our program survey if you are delivering credit recovery program options in your local school this summer.  This will assist us in planning and also allow MTDA to direct summer inquiries from our teaching and support staff to the appropriate person during the summer.  That survey is here.
  • Summer does not lessen the requirement for local school support.  All assessments MUST be locally proctored to qualify for the delivery of credit, no exceptions.


  • Enrollment begins: April (please note; do not enroll students until a maximum of 48 hours before students start the course; inactive students are monitored and dropped from the program); live coach grading and support will not begin until June 13th)
  • Summer staffing begins: June 13th (before this day, assignments will only be graded over night)
  • Enrollment ends: July 8th (open enrollment ends July 8th, after that day, contact support to discuss new enrollments)
  • Last day for Summer 2016: August 5th OR THE LAST DAY OF LOCAL SUPPORT
  • Late finish deadline (to account for illness or other personal situations): August 12th (no extensions available after this date for any circumstances)


  • All students new to the MTDA credit recovery program must complete the mandatory Orientation program.  The program is called “Credit Recovery Orientation” in GeniusSIS and must receive a “pass” to be able to enroll in content specific programs.  The orientation is open now.  Once a student takes and completes the orientation, they do not need to complete it again.
  • The orientation program is approximately 2-3 hours of engagement time, dependent on student skill, reading level and motivation.  Students that do not complete orientation in a reasonable amount of time should be considered high need enrollments and provided additional direct support locally.


  • Please review our student registration page in the Site Facilitator handbook for information on data collection, entrance counseling and student registration.  That document is here: link.

Program Information

To facilitate forward progression of summer program students, MTDA will adapt our labor model to provide live coaching services during most of the school day.  Our teaching staff will work to turn around mastery assignments as quickly as possible in the order they are received.

At this point, our intention is to provide those services from 8 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday-Friday.

Course Availability

MTDA will offer a limited CR offering for the summer program, eliminating the very low or no enrollment courses from previous semesters.

Program Planning Notes

  • Local program support required: As during the school year, it is a minimum requirement that students are delivered assessments in a school proctored environment.  Under no circumstances should students be given passwords to take assessments.
  • Time Dedication: The summer program is the same format and curriculum as the school year, utilizing a mastery-based learning environment to provide a flexible but rigorous environment.  Based on statistics and analysis from Fall and Spring data, courses do take the typical student 50-60 hours to complete in the summer program and format, though we do have extremes in both directions.  Students that come to the program substantially challenged by reading or self-regulation may take much longer.
