Course Format: Completion of the 2-week course does not mean that the student has successfully recovered credit. Material is presented online through the Georgia Virtual School's Credit Recovery page at gacreditrecovery.org. Certified teachers are in each classroom to help students work through questions and material. The course moves at the pace of each student. To complete a credit recovery course, a student must complete all post-tests with a grade of 70% or above (retakes are allowed), an essay for language arts classes, and a final exam all in the presence of their assigned instructor.
Grade Reporting: Students and parents can see final grades and progress through the Georgia Virtual School website. After successful completion of the course, students can inform the Credit Recovery teacher to finalize their grade. Grades will then be reported and appear in the student's course history.
