High School Credit Recovery
All high school students (9-12) must complete the 24 required credits (listed above) for graduation. Students lacking credits must participate in the credit recovery program to earn missing credits and be on track to graduate.
Middle School Promotion
Students must pass* a minimum of 80% of all coursework and have a 90% attendance rate. Students not meeting these requirements will be required to attend and complete summer school to be promoted to the next grade level.
*Pass is defined as earning a D- (65%) or higher.
Postsecondary Enrollment Option (PSEO)
PSEO allows high school juniors and seniors to take college courses. Each institution that participates in PSEO has eligibility requirements that students need to meet. VES also has eligibility requirements for students wanting to enroll in PSEO. Eligible VES students may also participate in the Mechatronics program at Northwest Technical College or the Online College in the Classroom program. See the school director or school counselor for more information.
