Infographic: The state of credit recovery in Minnesota public schools

Credit recovery in Minnesota infographic

September 19, 2019

Credit recovery is a strategy that allows students to retake courses that are required for graduation after an unsuccessful attempt. The recovery of failed credit is one of the strongest determinants of whether students who are struggling academically will graduate on time from high school.

There is a high degree of variability [288 KB PDF icon] surrounding credit recovery requirements, instructional methods, supports, and when and where opportunities are offered. This variability in programming not only creates opportunity gaps among students, it also presents significant challenges for state education agencies trying to support meaningful student success.

REL Midwest worked with the Minnesota Department of Education to conduct an environmental scan that identifies the practices and programs used by Minnesota public school districts to support students’ credit-recovery efforts. This infographic summarizes the main findings from this scan.
