How does my parent/guardian receive information on supporting me in eCredit?
In the past, we used to do an in-person orientation for students and guardians, yet we have now flipped that information into a video format that can be found here (y aqui es el video en espanol). We highly encourage students and guardians to view this video in order to understand an overview of eCredit.
How should I choose which class to take in eCredit?
Make sure you talk with your counselor to determine which class you need to recover. You MUST have failed the course and have an F on your transcript to recover the credit. eCredit classes were not created to be taken as first-time courses.
What do I need to do to register?
Click on eCredit Registration at the top of the page. You may choose Registration in person or online registration. You can pay online with a card or check. Incomplete payments online will be voided, money reimbursed and the student will not be registered. Registration must be completed before deadline.
Will I make a good candidate?
Good candidates can answer YES to these questions. Students who struggle in eCredit typically say No to at least 2 items. If you are that student, and insist of taking eCredit please know you may struggle more with eCredit.
- I have access to a computer/iPad and the Internet
- I can attend all in-person school meetings
- I have reliable transportation that can get me to eCredit every week
- My after-school extra curricular activities (sports, job, sibling duties, etc.) will not interfere with attending after-school eCredit or completing lesson activities
- I am ready to learn the content in eCredit
- I know how to follow directions from an online instructor, OR I am willing to ask questions and learn to do this.
- I know how to take effective notes and know HOW TO USE them in a test, OR I am ready to ask questions and learn how to do this.
- I can minimize online distractions (avoid visiting external sites such as facebook or you tube)
- I will do my own work and not have someone else complete my work for me
- If I am taking a Social Studies or English course, I am committed to write every other week
Does that mean that I can work from home?
Yes. You should be completing 10% of work every week for ten weeks to be 100 percent complete. Over the summer you will be expected to complete up to 35% of work every week, to be done in the three-week window.
How long do I have to complete my work?
Course work must be completed within the 10-week session during the school-year (after-school, two days a week). This 10-week window does not include holidays. No extensions will be given.
During the summer, it is 3-weeks long (Monday-Friday).
Is this an online course or a face-to-face course?
It’s a blend of both. You are required to attend face-to-face meetings to get that teacher support. However, you can work online from anywhere with Internet connection. You can work every day for as long as you choose and get done as soon as you have submitted the required course work. This means you can complete the course much sooner than the deadline depending on the amount of time you are willing to dedicate to completing the coursework.
What if I decide to drop after registering?
You may drop at any time, but the fee is non-refundable.
