Summer 2020 Virtual Credit Recovery

2020 Virtual Credit Recovery

Virtual Credit Recovery is an opportunity for students to recover one high school course credit and receive a grade. 

Over three weeks, students will:

  • Take part in daily synchronous (face to face) learning sessions with their teacher.
  • Complete daily online learning modules at their own pace (asynchronous).
  • Teachers will have office hours at set times and by appointment for students to ask questions. Schools will provide this information to the students.


  • Students must have received an F in the course to be eligible to participate in Credit Recovery. The one exception is students who earned a D in Algebra 1 are eligible for Credit Recovery.
  • Students are eligible to recover ONLY 1 course in Virtual Credit Recovery.

  • If you are interested in a New Credit (student has never taken the course), please go to the FCPS Online Summer School to register.
