Credit Recovery

The law allows for districts to set a procedure for students to make up work and/or seat time to regain credit lost through excessive absences. The DHS procedure to regain lost credit will be assigned by an assistant principal and may be accomplished through the following methods. :

  • On-line learning through Edgenuity (must be approved and assigned by the grade level assistant principal and the grade level counselor),
  • Saturday Credit Recovery School from 8:00 AM to 12:00 Noon ($15.00 charge)
  • After-School Detention scheduled on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 2:45 to 4:00 PM.

At each three week progress report, the attendance clerk will print a list of all students who have recorded less than 90% attendance in any class. All students whose name appears on the list will receive a directive from their grade level assistant principal to recover credit through one of the methods listed above. The student’s parent will also be notified that a student has been assigned to a credit recovery process. Any student who fails to complete the credit recovery program by the last day of the semester will be denied credit for the course.
