The utility checks the current school year's pass/fail records where the student may have been denied credit due to excessive absences. If you select Load Summer School on the Credit Recovery Setup page, it only builds records if the student is enrolled in the same course in summer school in the current summer school year. If the student is enrolled in special education in an instructional track other than 40, information for the 505 record will also be created.
  • If you select Maintain Course Information on the Credit Recovery Setup page, it updates minutes eligible present and career tech minutes present for each course the student is taking for credit recovery.
