Many districts are turning to online credit recovery to combat the challenge of lowering dropout rates while meeting the needs of 21st century learners. Often called the "silent epidemic" in our nation's high schools, the negative consequences of dropping out do not stop with low graduation rates but also pose challenges to our nation's economic and social well being.
Join North Carolina Virtual Public School (NCVPS) as they discuss how they created and implemented an online credit recovery program. Already equipped with classic online courses for AP and first time credit, NCVPS decided to offer a credit recovery option as well.
Michelle Lourcey, Curriculum and Instruction Division Director, Credit Recovery and Modular Learning, NCVPS and Jeff Page, Credit Recovery Specialist, NCVPS will describe how they got started creating their 10 courses, complete with content aligned to state standards, and describe their mastery model. They will also share how the program allows students to move at their own pace and provides flexible learning opportunities.
We'll also explore how Blackboard is providing the foundation for this statewide online credit recovery program and review the tools and features NCVPS is using within the Blackboard platform including Adaptive Release.
