Credit Recovery Courses

Idaho Digital Learning Alliance’s (IDLA) credit recovery program is a hybrid approach of a traditional IDLA course and a district-led intervention program. In partnership with the District, these courses utilize asynchronous content and instruction, required participation, and enhanced student support to provide students with a high level of learning. These courses are intended for students who have previously failed a course required for graduation as well as for first time learners who have been designated as “at-risk”. 

  • IDLA will provide the course content, Learning Management System, teachers, and internal support staff to offer the credit recovery program to districts.
  • Districts will provide local personnel to support the students with intervention support, social-emotional support, physical and/or virtual technical access to courses, and transcription of credits.

What is different in Credit Recovery from Cohort or Flex courses?

  • Course content is different from IDLA Cohort and Flex courses. Students review materials and complete an activity for each lesson. Students also complete a unit quiz at the end of each unit. The course is broken down into 8 units. The 8 unit quizzes compose the Final Exam requirement for the course. There is not an additional Final Exam or Final Project in the course. 
  • Students are required to maintain a regular pace by completing daily work as assigned by the teacher in order to be counted present for the day. Those who do not meet daily work requirements will be recorded as absent for the day. The student’s Site Coordinator is able to excuse an absence by contacting their teacher. Any student with 12 unexcused absences will be dropped from the course.
  • Monitoring Site Coordinators will work in partnership with the IDLA Teacher to provide additional Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) support for students to help meet non-academic needs necessary for success. A brief training will be provided to Monitoring Site Coordinators to help equip them with the tools they need to provide this layer of support.
