 Credit Options

Regular School Day: The school day begins at 7:40 am and ends at 2:15 pm, and is a 5 period day with periods 1 through 4 running 75 minutes in length and period 5 is 35 minutes.

Students schedule for new classes each Quarter (1-4) and receive grades/credit every Mod (1-12) which is approximately every 3 weeks.

Total credit possible with passing grades in every class for one school year is 108 mod credits = 27 trimester credits or 18 semester credits.

Independent Study (IS): Work is completed independently through a combination of written work and online with a credit recovery program – Odysseyware. Each course is a semester credit upon successful completion. Courses can be modified.

Many paper and pencil options are also available from subject area teachers. Students ask for IS work to supplement a full or modified class schedule. (Any version of IS requires seat time within the building.)

Project Based Learning: Students design and propose projects to teachers. The subject area teacher works with the proposal and credit is awarded upon completion.
