Credit Recovery Program Information

Credit Recovery courses are for students who did not pass a course the first time or who are behind in credits and are not on track to graduate on time. 

 

THE PEARSON CONNEXUS PROGRAM

1. Self‐Directed: Students move at the pace appropriate for their learning, repeating difficult lessons as needed and skipping those that are not needed based on pre‐testing.

2. LOHS Teacher Mentor: The Mentor teacher will provide academic support during specified day and time (to be communicated to students on the first day of class.)

3. Flexibility: Students can complete the program anywhere there is access to the internet so students can work on their course off‐site at any time with the exception of the final exam.

4. Diagnostic Driven: Students begin each unit of their courses by taking a formative assessment. This determines what knowledge the student already has and automatically directs the student to the section of the course they still need to master.

 

ATTENDANCE/CREDIT POLICY

• Upon starting their course, students will be given an expected date of course completion. Student progress will be monitored throughout the course. If student progress significantly varies from the expected completion date, parents will be notified.

• As these programs are self‐paced, students may finish the course earlier than expected.

• If the course is not completed in the allotted number of days, the student will earn a failing grade.

 

ASSESSMENT POLICY

All final exams and assessments will be taken online.

 

COURSE LIST

The Pearson Connexus Course List includes core and elective courses available in Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Health/Wellness Electives, World Language and SAT Prep courses are also available.
