Bulloch County Schools has announced that current high school students are invited to virtually earn required academic credits this summer toward graduation through the Graduation Performance Academy.
Summer session will be June 7 – July 16 for students in grades 9-12. Students can apply HERE.
Bulloch County Schools:
The free, self-paced sessions use a familiar computer-based platform, Edgenuity, with the support of certified teachers from the district. Teachers will be available to assist students Mondays through Fridays, from 8:15 a.m. – 3:45 p.m., either at the William James Educational Complex, in Statesboro, or virtually via Gmail and Google Meet. Students will also have access to a graduation specialist who can help with goal setting, the Edgenuity platform and other questions.
While students can set their own schedules, in order to earn credits successfully, it is highly recommended that students commit to work at least 15 hours per week to their course(s).
Remember attending high school for four years does not make a student eligible to graduate. High school students must earn the appropriate number of course units each year to be considered on-track to graduate with a total of 24 credits. Students must make up course work not passed by attending credit recovery programs like this.
