Summer School 2021: Credit Recovery

  • Registration for the credit recovery summer school session is now closed. If you need to recover credit, please reach out to your school's counseling department for alternatives.

    The Downingtown Area School District is offering a credit recovery program that includes coursework for a previously failed high school course. Recovery credit courses are reported on the official transcript and the grades are calculated into the student’s grade point average (GPA). Courses are aligned to the DASD curriculum and PA Core Standards.

    Dates: June 21 - July 15

    Format: The courses will be self-paced and asynchronous for all four weeks.

    Location: Tutoring will be available at DHSW from 9:00-11:00 Mon-Thurs. or via Zoom. Students who are using district-provided transportation will have a supervised study hall from 7:30-9:00.

    Important: Our credit recovery courses are designed especially for high school students who did not pass a course initially but learned enough to make a complete repetition of the class unnecessary. Tutoring will be available from a DASD teacher to review concepts and to enhance understanding. However, teachers will not be conducting daily lessons. Students who require direct instruction should consider retaking the course during the 21-22 school year.

    Students cannot take more than two credit recovery courses during the summer session. If students successfully complete two courses during the session and have time to complete a third, parents can request this option by emailing 

    Students will be in class working at their own pace to master the material and to earn course credit.  A DASD teacher will be available in-person at Downingtown West and via Zoom each school day.

Registration Information

  • Students must first register for a credit recovery course on the Downingtown Area School District website in May.  

    STUDENT-ATHLETES: Please check with your building NCAA-Coordinator before registering if you need eligibility.

    FINAL GRADES: Grades for students taking a credit recovery course will be automatically added to Infinite Campus at the conclusion of the course. It is the student’s responsibility to verify that final course grades have been received by the Counseling Office.
