Student must have taken Algebra I, but not received credit.

Course Description:

This learning recovery course allows students to pretest and identify specific content areas within the course to complete with the support of the teacher. Entire course is offered online and does not require the student to attend the class in person. A two week extension is available for students who may require more flexibility to complete the program. It is the responsibility of the student to determine their school’s acceptance of VTVLC credit for credit recovery. Refunds will only be granted PRIOR to the course start date of 6/28/17.
