Credit Recovery That Is Flexible, Affordable, and Convenient
Allowing students to retake courses required for graduation when their previous attempts have been unsuccessful is critical not only for improving your district's overall graduation rate, but more importantly, for helping your students secure better opportunities for their futures. Failure to complete high school is directly correlated with reduced employment opportunities, relegation to low-skill and low-paying positions, and diminished intergeneration upward mobility.
Programs designed to make up missed credits offered through your district can ensure students not only complete their high school requirements, but also provide the opportunity to avoid a delay to a student's graduation.
While the benefits of credit recovery are evident, school leaders face the challenge of meeting these needs in their districts, which is no small challenge. Best practices show that simply offering a credit make-up program will help to bolster overall graduation rates, but not all programs are created equal. When and how the recovery of credits is offered can create opportunity gaps among students. Creating a program that supports meaningful student success involves a flexible and convenient solution while maintaining the quality of the curriculum and student support.
Through Pearson District Partnerships, you can tailor a solution for credit recovery that meets the needs of your district’s students, giving them every opportunity to overcome setbacks and succeed. With prescriptive credit recovery courses, you can:
- Provide a personalized learning path for every student that fits any learning style.
- Save teachers time with a system that automatically assigns content based on objectives yet to be mastered during the pre-assessment.
- Realize return on instruction by re-engaging dropouts and increasing graduation rates.
- Get students excited about learning with interactive and engaging courses where they control the time, place, and pace in a virtual high school setting.
- Help students make up credits and graduate on time with their peers.
