How the Graduation Performance Academy Serves Students

Bulloch County School's Graduation Performance Academy is a student support program for high schools students in grades 9 to 12. It is overseen by our school district's Student Wellness and Support Department. These are key points about the program:
 
  • The Graduation Performance Academy offers sessions throughout the school year and summer.
  • It is a free, self-paced, virtual program that helps high school students recover any required academic credits toward graduation that they have not yet mastered.
  • Students use Edgenuity, with the support of certified teachers from our school district to complete their coursework.
  • Certified teachers are available to assist students virtually Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., via Gmail, by telephone or Google Meet.
  • Students will also have access to a graduation specialist who can help with goal setting, the Edgenuity platform and other questions. The program is meant to be a credit recovery, and not a credit acceleration program.
  • While students can set their own schedules to complete their coursework, in order to earn credits successfully, it is highly recommended that students commit to working at least 15 hours per week on their course(s).  
  • Interested students should meet with their high school counselor and apply by each semester's advertised deadline. 
  • Counselors will then meet with interested students to develop individual plans for what course credits a student needs.
  • The legal, custodial parent or guardian will then be asked to give his or her consent. 

Why is course credit recovery necessary?

High school success and a student's path to graduation is not:

  • “I got promoted to the next grade level” or
  • “ I’ve gone to high school four years.”

High school success and a student's path to graduation is: 

“I am on track to earn 24 academic & elective credits to graduate.”

  • 4 academic & 2 elective course credits freshman year
  • 4 academic & 2 elective course credits sophomore year
  • 4 academic & 2 elective course credits junior year
  • 4 academic & 2 elective course credits senior year

If a student has not earned the proper amount of high school course credits due to not mastering a course or for other reasons, he or she needs to recover those credits in order to stay on track to graduate his or her senior year.
