The Daviess County Public Schools district has been promoting a credit recovery program that allows individuals who left school without graduating to complete credit requirements through an individualized learning program.
“We consider this a fulfillment of our mission, which is to help students successfully complete their educations through high school graduation,” Mike Gray, Community Relations Coordinator said. “Regardless of how many years may have gone by, we believe high school graduation is a worthy goal, and we want to support and assist anyone who left school without reaching that milestone.”
As American Graduate Day (Sept. 27) approaches, DCPS wants to remind individuals who left Apollo, Beacon Central or Daviess County high schools without graduating that a diploma may still be within reach. Anyone who is missing a few credits may contact Mike Gray at the DCPS Central Office, 270-852-7000 or [email protected] and provide the full name of the student, year student would have graduated and contact information. Once credit status has been verified, Gray will work with the individual to provide credit recovery options.
There is no cost other than an investment of time and dedication.
An additional benefit of helping former students earn their diplomas will be to raise the overall education level of the Daviess County community. This has far-reaching benefits for economic development and quality of life, both for the community and for individuals.
