The Bossier Parish School Board shall conduct a credit recovery program designed to allow students an opportunity to earn high school credit for courses they have failed in the past.  The program shall be intended to help students by delivering educational services in a flexible, time-efficient manner in order to help them succeed academically and ultimately graduate.


Credit recovery courses shall be aligned with Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE) approved statewide course content standards for required subjects.  Credit recovery courses taught in a classroom setting using computer software programs designed for credit recovery must be facilitated by a certified teacher.  Additional instruction to cover standards and grade-level expectations not included in the software programs shall be provided by a teacher properly certified in the content area.


Students earning Carnegie credit in a credit recovery course must have previously taken and failed the course.  Students shall not be required to meet minimum attendance requirements for credit recovery courses, provided students have met attendance requirements when they took the course previously or the students' combined attendance during the previous course and the credit recovery course meet the necessary attendance requirements.
