Credit Recovery Programming

DCPS launched a redesigned credit recovery program in School Year 2018-2019 to ensure that all students have the opportunity to succeed and are held to rigorous standards of excellence. Through the new credit recovery program, students have access to individualized, competency-based courses that are aligned to DCPS curriculum standards. These courses enable students to progress at their own pace through content that they did not master in their original course to earn course credit on their path to graduation.

To support high school students who have fallen behind, Credit Recovery courses are available to all students in grades 9-12.

In addition to credits earned during the regular school day, students can earn credits during after school credit recovery sessions. This allows students who have failed one or more courses to continue on a path toward graduation within four years.

School counselors and credit recovery coordinators in every high school have information about credit recovery programming; to help support students to get back on track for graduation.

Credit Recovery is offered in the following schools:

  • Anacostia
  • Ballou
  • Cardozo
  • Columbia Heights Education Campus  
  • Coolidge
  • Dunbar
  • Eastern
  • HD Woodson
  • Inspiring Youth Program
  • Phelps ACE 
  • Ron Brown
  • Roosevelt
  • Wilson
