Summer School - Credit Recovery (Grades 9 - 12)

 Credit Recovery Courses

Credit Recovery Courses (Grades 9 – 12):

Courses in this program are designed for students (with home school approval) who, during the preceding two school years, have been unsuccessful in one or two subjects.  If unsuccessful, students should have no more than 15 class absences and have achieved a mark between 35% and 49% in a course that has been taken within the last two school years. It is the responsibility of students and their guidance counsellors to ensure that all requirements have been met before registering for credit recovery course.  The student MUST take the same course grade and stream that was previously taken.   Up to one credit will be granted for each course successfully completed at summer school.  A maximum of two credits can be recovered during the summer session. 

Credit Recovery courses run Monday through Friday and are semestered. Semester 1 classes commence Monday July 8, 2019 and conclude Thursday July 18, 2019.  Semester 2 begins Monday July 22, 2019 and ends Thursday August 1, 2019. 

Summative evaluations for Semester 1 courses will be held on Wednesday July 17th and Thursday July 18th, 2019.  Summative evaluations for Semester 2 courses will be held on Wednesday July 31st and Thursday August 1st, 2019.  Attendance is MANDATORY on these days – no changes or exceptions can be made.  Credit Recovery students will be dismissed at 12:00 pm on July 18th and August 1st, 2019.  Note: the bussing schedule on July 18th will not be altered to accommodate early dismissal. 

Civics (CHV2O1) and Career Studies (GLC2O1) are separate courses and therefore require separate registrations.

Current DDSB students enrolled in a Credit Recovery course CANNOT take any other course (except a second Credit Recovery course) in any other delivery model during the duration of the SUMMER program (i.e. Learn@Home, eLearning, Accelerated).
