Online Credit Recovery (OCR)
Online Credit Recovery offers a unique opportunity for students who have previously failed courses to recover those credits in the eLearning platform. The versatility of the eLearning platform allows for courses to be accessible before, during, and after the school day providing students with the resources to recover a course credit in as little as 16 weeks, and up to three classes in a year. Please see our course list.
Students who have been unsuccessful in the classroom and need to make up credits are encouraged to see their counselor to learn more about Online Credit Recovery.
Virtual AP Courses
This program provides equitable Advanced Placement opportunities for students whose current schools do not have the resources or critical need for a section of a particular AP class. They are Virtual College Board approved courses where online course content is accesible 24/7, and offers the flexibility to fit into any student's schedule. Virtual AP courses are available for Juniors and Seniors who are on track for graduation and wish to challenge themselves. Please see our course list.
Initial Credit Elective Courses
The eLearning platform allows students the opportunity to take courses for initial credit in the virtual environment. These elective courses provide students with the opportunity to accrue credits and technology skills simultaneously, and provide students across the District the opportunity to take classes that may not be available in traditional “brick and mortar” setting. Please see our course list.
Online Professional Development
eLearning also offers a plethora Professional Development courses for teachers outside of the school day and accessible anywhere. We offer various courses on SMART Notebook, RCSD 121 Google accounts, curriculum instruction, other district instructional resources and integration strategies. A complete catalog of these course offerings can be found in our professional development management system, Generation, under IT_eLearning.
RCSD eCurriculum offers RCSD teachers virtual access to common core curriculum standards, lesson resources, and enrichment materials.
Proactive Credit Attainment (PCA)
The Proactive Credit Attainment (PCA) program provides students who are currently failing a course and/or who have become disengaged in school or in a particular course an opportunity to reattempt a course averaging their current grades with the grade they receive in the PCR course. There is an application and approval process for this program. This option should not be considered for all students who are failing; it is not an easy fix as students would have to complete an entire online course in half a year.
