End of Year Logistics
As we approach the end of the year some things to think about before the new year comes along:
a. Did your student AF a course, apply for an appeal and was granted it? If so, please make sure their AF grade has been updated on their transcript. You can contact guidance for information.
b. Did your student qualify for Credit Recovery or Competency Recovery? Please make sure your student discusses what needs to happen with their classroom teacher. There are deadlines that need to be met and summer work may be required. If they have successfully completed the needed work, please make sure their grade has been updated to the appropriate letter/numerical grade. You can contact guidance for information.
SUMMER COMPETENCY RECOVERY
Any student who failed a course this year, had a numerical grade of at least a 60 and was within 2 competencies of passing the course will qualify for Summer Competency Recovery. (Student also must have fewer than 7 absences per quarter).
Summer Competency Recovery will run: Week 1 July 11-13, Week 2 July 18-20 and Week 3 July 25-27.. Students can come from 9am to 12pm. The cost to attend Summer Competency Recovery is $10 per day. Students only pay for the days they attend, and in some instances, students can take the work home with them and return it upon completion. This is the last time they have to complete any competency recovery options for the 2016-2017 school year.
The Somersworth High School community will foster intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, and literacy in students while developing respectful, responsible, and articulate global citizens.
