Original Credit

High school students (students who have completed 8th grade) who want to accelerate their learning can do so by taking online courses for original credit through a web- based curriculum. All work is online with the student working independently in a self-paced format.  Students are expected to complete online work on a regular basis within the web-based program. Online learning courses do not meet NCAA standards and may not be appropriate for all learners. Please see your counselor for more information.

Per district grading guidelines, grades in original credit are awarded a numeric grade and will be factored in the student’s GPA. Students need to meet with their counselor to verify the course is needed and that it will be accepted as credit towards a student’s graduation plan.

Credit Recovery

Students who have failed a semester course are able to make up this class by successful completion of the course. The course is online, self-paced, with teachers who closely monitor student progress and assist students as needed. Grades in summer school will be awarded in the form of a P or F. For further information on promotion, retention, and credit see the Secondary Grading Guidelines located on the NISD website.

Students will be allowed to enroll in additional semester courses once they have completed a course and if time allows
