Spring Course Extension & Credit Recovery

In the spring we will again operate a 5th period after regular school hours.  5th period was started to assist students to catch up and graduate on time. It will run from January 23 – May 5.

There is one small change to 5th period. There is a $100 fee. We have seen the need for students to have more of a vested interest in the class. If a student is successful and passes the 5th period class they take, we will refund the $100.
