Credit Recovery

Welcome to Credit Recovery:
The Opportunities Never Stop

Need to make up failed credits? Credit Recovery runs year round in WSD3; one session in the fall and one in the spring, and one in the summer. Look for registration information in your school’s counseling center, and see them to register today.

  • Basic information: Refer to resources off to the side
  • Cost: $100 per course. We accept credit card payments, inquire with Counseling Center secretary at WHS and building secretary at MRHS.
  • Courses: all core subjects; see registration form for complete list
  • Restrictions: max of two courses per session; only classes already taken and failed
  • Time: 8 weeks per course; one semester credit available

Out of district? WSD3 welcomes students from other districts for online courses during the summer only; if your school doesn’t offer it, perhaps we can help!

Common Concerns

  • Program Help:
    • Use the file Student Tips and FAQs below for frequently asked questions and help with using the system, as well as citation.
  • BASIC Trouble shooting:
    • Be sure you accessed OdysseyWare through this page.
    • Students log in with their SD3 Google Email account!
    • There are no excused assignments; contact your teacher with questions
    • Submit assignments through the OdysseyWare website
  • What to do if you "disappear"
    • The OdysseyWare system changes a student's status in the course after he or she has submitted all the work, regardless of the scores on them. When this happens it will look like you are no longer enrolled in any courses when you login. Don't panic! You have until the dates provided for each session and it is an easy fix; just email or text your teacher or the coordinator phone at 719-896-0175 and your status will be reinstated within 24 hours and all work you have done will reappear. Kudos on your hard work and let us know what you need. - Ms. Dicus
