This summer new rules were implemented for credit recovery programs. Districts are able to conduct their programs with less concern over seat time. Rules are more flexible to allow programs which can better fit each student.
Some requirements still in place–instruction must occur under the supervision of a certified teacher. I am happy to see that! The rules also include language requiring “instruction” and criteria for what that means. Students taking courses where regents exams are required may not get the course credit if the exam has not been passed.
