Are you Off-Track or behind on Credits?

How to be an Ideal Student

  • Come to school.

  • When you are at school, be ready to learn.

  • Maintain good organization skills.

  • Write down or enter in your phone important class test/quiz or deadline dates.

  • When you don’t understand something, don’t give up. Ask for help!

  • Meet with your teacher before or after school to get extra help.

  • Do as much work while in class so there is little left to take home.

  • Prepare for assessments—especially EOCs.\

  • Ask your counselor to set up a parent/teacher/student conference.

Ways to Catch Up on Credits or Graduate ON TIME

  • Attend Course Extension at the end of each semester

    • If students fail a course with a 60-69, they are eligible to attend Course Extension where they will complete certain standards for that course. Upon successful completion, the grade will be changed to 70. Not all courses are available via Course Extension so a student may have to re-take a particular course or a similar one that isn't offered. ​
