2nd semester startup...

Welcome back from....


All GradPoint students should gradually see their credit recovery coursework in GradPoint as I get course(s) recommendations from counselors. Course contract/syllabus will also be distributed as it is also located under PAGES (near GradPoint link)on the right side of this blog.

Coursework includes:

  • pre/post tests
  • lessons/quizzes(as assigned based on pre-test scores)
  • note-taking (from lessons & quizzes)
  • reading/writing assignments (ENGLISH COURSES only)
  • review tests(at the end)
  • EOC (if applicable to course)
*Repeating EOC course(s) in GradPoint  also requires retaking EOC.
As stated in TODAY MATTERS, "Focused concentration is one of the keys to success."
