Students also have the opportunity to complete individual outline and teacher driven course work.to recover credits which have been previously failed, or not taken.

Each student enrolling in this program must provide a Principal's Verification Form and a transcript which can be obtained from their High School Counselor and presented at the time of enrollment. Due to classroom availability and class size restrictions, enrollment will be on a first come, first serve basis. Students not enrolled for the class will be place on a waiting list, and if enough students enroll and faculty can be hired, a new class will be formed.The Dropout Recovery Program is designed for students living in the Moore School District who are in grades nine through twelve that have been identified as "at risk students", and who are not attending day school.
