Rutherford County Schools

Registration for Summer 2019 Credit Recovery will begin on April 15.
Ask your school counselor about credit recovery.

The credit recovery lab at Riverdale High School will be closed on July 4 and 5, 2019.

There are three summer options available: traditional summer school, online classes, and credit recovery. This page provides information about summer credit recovery.
Credit Recovery is for students who failed a class with a final grade of 50-69 in the 2018-19 school year and need to repeat one or more semesters.
Be aware that Credit Recovery classes are not NCAA certified.
List of Credit Recovery Courses

Read the following information carefully before you register. Your school counselor must approve registrations submitted before May 29. Summer counselors will approve requests submitted after that date. You may register online or come to registration at Riverdale High School on summer school registration days on May 28 from 4:00 until 7:00 and May 29 from 1:00 until 4:00. If you come to RHS to register, bring your report card with you. If you register online, you do not have to come to RHS to register. Avoid the long lines at summer on-site registration by filling out the form online!

After June 3, late registration for Credit Recovery will continue until June 20, but you must finish all work by July 19.

You may pay with cash (bring exact change) or by money order or cashier’s check made out to Rutherford County Schools. You can also pay online with a credit or debit card. We send you that link when you are approved for the class. We DO NOT accept personal checks.

  • Students may take credit recovery courses over the summer by working in the computer lab at Riverdale High School (exact room to be announced) and/or by working from home.
  • Courses are open only to RCS students who have completed 9th grade and who made a 50-69 in a course during the 2018-19 school year

Students and Parents, read these requirements carefully before you enroll in a recovery course.

  1. During the summer, students will have until July 19 to complete a half-credit recovery class. To be successful, students should expect to work at least 3-5 hours per day, 5 days per week, on the class whether working at home or at school.
  2. You may register for two semesters of credit recovery. If you finish one or both of them by June 20, you may register for one or two more with special permission from the RCS Credit Recovery Instructional Specialist.
  3. All pre and post-tests must be taken in the lab under the supervision of the recovery facilitator. NO EXCEPTIONS! This will require at least three visits per half-credit to the lab during the eight week summer session. Some courses,especially math, require more pre and post tests. 

For visits 2 and 3 the student should email the recovery facilitator to make an appointment for the test. Test visits usually take about an hour or less. In the 2nd  visit, you will take two tests as listed above. 

  1.  All assignments for your current learning path must be completed before you take the post-test.
  2.  If a student plans to be on vacation or otherwise unable to work on assignments for a few days, he/she must notify the recovery facilitator in advance and work out a schedule to turn in those assignments. Pre- and post- tests must still be taken at the RHS Credit Recovery lab.
  3.  Students are allowed to work ahead to finish a recovery course in less than the eight-week summer session. That should be your goal.
  4.  Students need reliable internet access outside of lab hours to complete their assignments. Internet access at home is the responsibility of the student/parents and is not provided by the school district. Access to a laptop or desktop computer is the responsibility of the student/parents and is not provided by the school district. The platform is not fully compatible with phones/tablets, so you will need a laptop or desktop computer.
  5.  When taking the pre-tests, remember to do your very best. The better you score on the pre-test, the less work you will have in your learning path assignments.
  6.  Summer credit recovery that is not completed by July 19 does not carry over to the next school year. You must start over in the fall semester if you do not complete your recovery in the summer term.
Registration for Summer 2019 Credit Recovery will begin on April 15.
