• CREDITS

    Students earn credits towards graduation in each class by actively participating in the learning process each day. Credits are granted based on the number of productive hours that a student completes during the quarter.  Every 15 hours of productive time = I credit in a class and 75 hours of productive time equates to a 5-credit class. It is common for a motivated student to earn additional hours and accordingly additional credit in class.  A student who has completed all assigned work may be assigned homework for extra credit. However, it is also a fact that some students, due to excessive absences, tardies, or not being on task, will receive less than the 75 hours needed for the full 5 credits. As a result, variable credits will be assigned for students not completing the required 75 productive hours. If a student loses hours because of behavior or an unexcused tardy or absence, he/she may NOT be allowed to make up missed work.
