2020-21 Credit Recovery

  • 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.

    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.

    The online courses are crafted to keep students on task and moving forward, utilizing a “chunked” methodology to increase retention. Students who require direct instruction should consider retaking the entire course during the 20-21 school year.

    It is NOT recommended that students take more than one credit recovery course.

    Students will be in class working at their own pace to master the material and to earn course credit.  A DASD teacher will be monitoring the students in the class to answer questions, to review material individually, and to encourage the students in their progress. 

    Credit recovery courses cost $225 and must be competed within the semester in which they are started.

    Courses that start in Marking Periods 1 or 2 must be finished by January 25, 2021.

    Courses that start in Marking Periods 3 or 4 must be finished by May 28, 2021.
