Credit Recovery Courses Remember that ACCESS CR classes are FREE! We do abide by the ALSDE mandate that the students must have failed the course with no less that a 40% and can earn a grade of no more than 70%. WIP’s You as a counselor can request a WORK IN PROGRESS for your students who may be struggling to finish a class due to illness, a death, pregnancy, or just a student who needs a little extra time and attention. You simply need to email me with the students name and the date in which you would like for the class to be extended and we will get that done for you.
