This summer, Bulloch County Schools’ high school students can virtually earn required academic credits toward graduation through the Graduation Performance Academy(GPA), June 6 – July 15. Interested students should speak with a school counselor and apply by June 1.
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 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., virtually via Gmail, by telephone or Google Meet.
While students can set their own schedules, in order to earn credits successfully, it is highly recommended that students commit to working at least 15 hours per week on their course(s). Students will also have access to a graduation specialist who can help with goal setting, the Edgenuity platform, and other questions.
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. This program is made possible by a Title V Rural Grant.
