The High School Student Success Indicator (HSSSI) measures the percentage of students who are either (a) in their first three years at a high school and are on track to graduate within four years or (b) who achieve a successful high school outcome within five years. The HSSSI includes the First Year On Track to Graduate (1YOTG) rate, the Second Year On Track to Graduate (2YOTG) rate, the Third Year On Track to Graduate (3YOTG) rate, and the Five-Year Student Success Rate (5YSSR). Since 24 High School credits are required to earn a regular diploma in South Carolina, at least four of which must be English credits and at least four of which must be math credits, a student is considered on track to graduate within four years if they have earned six or more High School credits, at least one of which must be an English credit and at least one of which must be a math credit by the end of each successive year in High School. Thus, by the end of their first year in High School, students are considered on track if they have earned at least six (6) credits, with at least 1 English credit and one math credit. By the end of their second year at High School, students are considered on
track if they have earned at least 12 credits, with at least 2 English credits and two math credits. By the end of their third year in High School, students are considered on track if they have earned at least 18 credits, with at least 3 English credits and three (3) math credits. Thus, if a student fails to meet the above requirements of obtaining six units each year, one in mathematics and the other in English, they will be required to attend Summer School and complete credit recovery. Each course of Credit Recovery will be $125.
We encourage students to take advantage of class time during our regular 180 days of school, as we know that credit recovery puts an extended burden on parents/guardians and staff. In addition, we understand that summer school can be a crucial opportunity for students to make up credits and stay on track with their academic goals. Our commitment to providing a quality education remains unwavering, and participating in the summer school/credit recovery program can be a valuable investment in your child’s future.
Here are the new details regarding the cost of our summer school credit recovery program:
- The cost for each course is $125.
- Payment for summer school courses is due by the beginning of the summer term. Dates will be given at a later date.
- Late payments may incur additional fees.
- We accept payments via cash or money order.
- No refunds will be issued.
We understand that the cost of summer school can be a concern for some families. We assure you that our primary goal is to support your child’s academic success. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your school’s administrative team.
We strongly encourage you to enroll your child in our summer school credit recovery program if they require additional support to meet their academic goals. We are committed to providing a nurturing and effective learning environment during the school year and summer months.
Thank you for your continued support of your child’s education, and we look forward to working together to ensure their success.
