Bulloch County School’s Graduation Performance Academy Provides Course Recovery Options for High School Students

Bulloch County School’s Graduation Performance Academy provides course recovery options for high school students to help them graduate on time with their class.


Did you not receive credit for a course? Do you need more credits in order to graduate on time? The Graduation Performance Academy, Bulloch County Schools’ course recovery program, is now accepting high school students for spring semester.
 
The program allows students to catch up on any of the required 24 academic course credits they need to graduate high school in four years. Interested students should contact their school counselor for more information and an application. Space is limited.
 
The Graduation Performance Academy’s free sessions give students access to E-2020 online academic course content and a certified teacher. While students may complete coursework at their own schedule and pace, school district faculty are available for virtual office hours and virtual tutoring Monday through Thursday, 4 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. to assist students.
 
Remember, high school graduation is not based on promotion from one grade level to the next or four years of high school attendance. It is based on if a student is on track to earn 24 academic and elective course credits. If a student has not earned the proper amount of high school course credits for any reason, he or she needs to recover those credits in order to stay on track to graduate with his or her class in May of their senior year. The Graduation Performance Academy is a service provided by the school district, and funded by a Title V Rural Grant.

EARN HIGH SCHOOL CREDITS

The Graduation Performance Academy is an alternative learning program offered by Bulloch County Schools. It provides high school students the opportunity to earn required high school credits toward graduation through the online learning platform, Edgenuity. Students can work at their own pace toward their goals of credit recovery or acceleration.

A student who is interested in attending the Graduation Performance Academy, should meet with his or her high school counselor to develop a plan for what course credits he or she needs to complete.  The legal, custodial parent or guardian will then be asked to give his or her consent. Once this is obtained, a student can attend.

WHY IS CREDIT RECOVERY NECESSARY?

High school success and a student’s path to graduation is not:

  • “I got promoted to the next grade level” or
  • “ I’ve gone to high school four years.”

High school success and your path to graduation is: 

“I am on track to earn 24 academic & elective credits to graduate.”

  • 4 academic & 2 elective course credits freshman year
  • 4 academic & 2 elective course credits sophomore year
  • 4 academic & 2 elective course credits junior year
  • 4 academic & 2 elective course credits senior year

If a student has not earned the proper amount of high school course credits due to not mastering a course or for other reasons, he or she needs to recover those credits in order to stay on track to graduate his or her senior year.
