We have developed an eLearning program for students to recover credits they have lost, protect credits before they are lost, and take advantage of opportunities beyond what is currently offered at school.
Recover credits this summer with our high school eLearning program
Our eLearning program allows students to recover credits during their summer vacation. This opportunity is provided as one-on-one, online instruction and encourages students to learn at their own pace, which can be critical for advancement to the next grade level for graduation.
This summer, we are offering our eLearning program to Midland High and H. H. Dow High students, as well as high school students from the surrounding Midland County school districts. The program cost is $125/semester credit for Midland Public Schools students and $150/semester credit for students from other school districts.
Location: Northeast Middle School
Session Dates: July 8-26 and July 29-August 16
Class Schedule: Three 2 hour sessions daily M-F
Class Times: 7:30 AM– 9:30 AM; 9:35 AM—11:35 AM; 12:30 PM—2:30 PM
For credit recovery, Education2020, an eLearning program, has been aligned with our curriculum to provide the same content as our current course offerings. MPS curriculum coordinators work to match the e2020 content as close as possible to what is being taught in the traditional classroom.
Credit recovery students are enrolled into the eLearning Lab during the school day. They work to complete as many courses as they can during that period. E2020 is available to students at any time, day or night, week day or weekend. Students are encouraged to finish multiple courses in one semester.
The e2020 system consists of a rigorous curriculum including: vocabulary, video lectures, journal activities, additional online links related to the subject matter, homework, and quizzes. Additional features to e2020 include essays, virtual labs, and manipulative technology in math classes called Gizmos, which help students better understand the concepts. Following several sections, students complete a test, and all courses have a required final exam. Students work on the course until they achieve mastery, and are given a grade of “Credit” on their transcript when they complete the course.
Students who have been unsuccessful in the classroom and need to make up credits (core and elective classes) are encouraged to see their counselor to learn more about credit recovery.
We also use Education2020 to offer credit protection. Credit protection is a teacher initiated program. Teachers can identify students who have been unsuccessful in a marking period in the classroom, and offer the student the chance to complete specific lessons or units through Education2020 system. Students then meet with their eLearning Facilitator. They will then work on their course outside of the school day from home, and complete within a specific time period.
When a student successfully completes the assigned material, the teacher will then convert the failing marking period grade to a grade of D-, which earns credit.
Seat Time Waiver…
MPS works in conjunction with the Genessee ISD to participate in the Seat Time Waiver Program (STW), which is authorized by the Michigan Department of Education. STW is designed specifically for students who cannot attend school but still wish to obtain their diploma through MPS. The student will work on online classes from their home, working with an assigned mentor teacher at the high school. Students must go through an application and interview process to be granted this waiver. Students should contact their counselor or Mr. Chris Sabourin (Technology and Media Curriculum Specialist) for more information.
Our eLearning classrooms provide a portal to online courses beyond what MPS currently offers. We currently have students enrolled in Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, and Calculus III through a variety of online providers.
Students interested in this opportunity should contact a counselor for more information.
