Credit Recovery Opportunities

  • Due to the irregular end of the 2019—2020 school year, the West Virginia Department of Education is offering free credit recovery opportunities for students.  Students who are in need of credit recovery for failed courses should contact their counselor to check eligibility and declare intent for enrollment.  These classes are available now and must be completed before July 31st, 2020.  Students may only enroll in one credit recovery course at a time.  Credit recovery courses have two parts that must BOTH be successfully completed for recovery of credit and prior to moving into a second credit recovery course.  Students can recovery more than one credit over the summer depending on how quickly they work.  Students who fail one or both parts of the credit recovery course must repeat the entire course upon return to school.  Students will need to know their Office 365 email and password to navigate credit recovery courses.  If this is needed by the student please contact an HHS administrator or Julie Crawford at .

Scheduling Forms

  • A digital scheduling form will be made available to students during the week of May 11th through student LiveGrades accounts and the HHS Facebook page.  Students who have completed a paper schedule request form and returned it should not complete the digital request form.  We ask that all scheduling forms (paper or digital) be returned by Friday, May 22nd.

Scholarships/Awards
