Credit Recovery and Test Out

Summer School:

2020 CCS Summer School: Course are offered through Clarkston Community Education for both credit recovery and advancement purposes. Summer School is only for students who would like to advance, or those who need to recover credit(s) from PRIOR TO this semester (SM2 of 2020). Students must check with their counselor before registering to ensure that they sign up for the correct class.  Summer School Information will be available in May.

Any students who fail a class this semester (SM 2 of 2020) will be contacted by their counselor to learn about options for remediating credit.

Test Out:

Students have the opportunity to earn credit by 'testing out' of a class offered at CHS. The student must score a 78% or higher on the test to earn credit. Students who successfully test out of a class will be awarded credit, but no letter grade will be given, The grade will be recorded as an "S" (Satisfactory), therefore the students GPA will not be impacted. Test outs are given twice per year, in August and December.  We do not perform test-out on demand.
