Students who have fallen behind in credit, who want individual educational challenges, who have medical conditions, who are married and/or have children, who have jobs, or who have not been successful in a traditional high school setting, my take credit retrieval classes through Lincoln High School. Parent requests for full time placement in the Lincoln credit retrieval program must first meet with the building principal for approval. The curriculum standards currently implemented in the credit retrieval program are identical to the curriculum standards established by the Walla Walla School District. Within its implemented curriculum, the credit retrieval course work meets the credit acquisition and graduation requirements dictated by Washington State guidelines and Walla Walla Public Schools. All curriculum of the credit retrieval program focuses primarily on meeting the specific needs of individual students while assuring it is directly aligned with state grade level expectations and essential learning requirements. Every credit earned in the credit retrieval program will be reviewed by Marci Knauft and/or Natalie Allen before that credit will be granted.
SCHOOL TO WORK
School to Work credits require 180 hours of supervised, documented hours in order to earn .5 credit. A work plan must be on file with the Worksite Learning Coordinator, and this plan must be consistent with the philosophy of Walla Walla School District work and volunteer programs. Wage stubs and letters of recommendation will be used to verify hours of work and volunteer work.
For students who qualify for working toward their GED, Lincoln High School offers a GED prep program for two periods per day. In order to qualify for the GED program, students must be a minimum of 17 years old, have less than 10 high school credits, and have principal approval.
