Edgenuity & Afternoon Credit Recovery FAQs

What is Edgenuity Credit Recovery?

An online program used by LISD to recover credit for classes already taken but failed. The courses are taken by semester for recovery. Students will watch/read lessons in an online program that aligns with the content taught in the LISD course. Students will take notes, do activities and/or labs, and take quizzes and tests. Students who successfully complete and pass the course will receive a grade (not averaged into the GPA) on their transcript. The originally failed grade remains on the transcript as well.

How do I enroll for a course?

Follow the registration link on the Summer School website to register. You will only register for one course per session. We will load additional courses at no cost during the session if the student finishes in time to do so.

What is the cost per course? How do I pay?

$75 per semester course, $50 for students coded at-risk, and no cost for students coded free/reduced.

Payment is done online during the registration process. The discounts are automatically calculated by the online registration site. There are no refunds, so please talk with your counselor before registering.

Can I enroll in multiple courses?

Students should enroll in only one course per session for afternoon Credit Recovery. If students have multiple courses that they need to complete and complete their registered course with fidelity before the end of the session, we will load another course for no extra charge if there is time to complete it.

Please note: Only 1 Edgenuity course will be active at once. You may be registered to take another course, but it will become active after your lab manager confirms that the previous course is passed and is complete.

When are the course sessions?

  • Session I June 3rd – 20th, 2024
  • Session II July 8th – 25th, 2024

Edgenuity courses will be disabled at 5 p.m. on June 20th and then reactivated on July 8th for students who are signed up for Session II. All courses will be disabled at 5 p.m. on July 25th. Courses will not be loaded/activated again until school resumes in the Fall of 2024.

Once I am enrolled, what happens next?

After you complete the registration for the course, our team will process your request and register you for the appropriate course. You will be assigned a lab manager who will help you track your assignments and progress in each course. The Lab Manager will email class information to the students. This email will include instructions on how to log on and use Edgenuity and information on how to contact/Zoom with your Lab Manager.

How do I get logged in?

Access Edgenuity through LaunchPad.

If you have a Lenovo laptop, then you will click on the Leander LaunchPad icon (with a rocket). If you have your own laptop or desktop, then you will need to go to the LaunchPad site.

Your login is your LISD computer login:
Username (first 8 characters of your lastname_ID number)
Password (whatever you have changed your password to)

Do I need to check in with my lab tech every day?

No, your lab manager is there to support you with technical questions and problem-solve issues you are having. You will work on your course at your own pace from home.

When do I need to report to the lab?

Credit Recovery Labs will be open for in-person support Monday – Thursday 1:30 – 4:30. Students will utilize the lab to take Prescriptive and all Unit testing. Students must arrive to start their tests by 3:30. Your lab manager will let you know if your course has a prescriptive test so that you know if you should test before you start your course.

Prescriptive testing is a test that determines the content that the student already knows. Please note: This needs to be completed in person before students begin the coursework. The program will take that content out of the course if the student demonstrates mastery, shortening the course the student will do.

Unit tests are embedded within each Edgenuity course. The student will not be able to progress through the course once they encounter a unit test.  At that time, the student will go to a designated campus Credit Recovery Lab on a Monday – Thursday during summer sessions to test in person. GHS, RHS, & VHS Credit Recovery Labs will be open for testing. Students can not bypass a unit test and come back to it. To move on in the course, the test must be taken in person and passed (retakes are provided on the same day).

Do I need to take the Prescriptive test?

No, this is optional. It is beneficial for students to take it so that content already mastered can be removed from the course. If the student chooses not to take this test, they will do the full course in Edgenuity. Your lab manager will let you know if your course has a prescriptive test so that you know if you should test before you start your course.

Do I need to take the unit test?

Yes, all students must take the unit tests in their courses. Students will be given more than one opportunity to take and pass this test. This must be done in person at the Lab.

What do I do once I have completed the course?

Email your Lab Manager or join their Google Meet session to let them know you have completed your course. They will complete and submit the completion form that will be sent to your home campus. The home campus will clear the credit on your transcript.  Students should ask their Lab Manager to submit a request to the summer school office for another course to be loaded once the first course is 95% or more completed with a passing grade. Once that request is submitted, a summer school counselor will approve the course and the Lab Manager will notify the student when it is loaded and ready to start.

Are there buses available to get to the lab?

Yes. We have buses/suburbans on Monday and Wednesday afternoons for students to attend the 1:30–4:30 p.m. open lab. See information at the top of the website for more information, including the form that needs to be completed to ride the bus. Find your route/time

How do I contact the campus?

You may contact your Lab Manager directly with questions via their email (once summer school starts) or email the summer school office at [email protected].

Questions?

If you have registration questions, please reach out via email to [email protected]

Questions about credits and for advising on course selection should be directed to the student’s counselor.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

The Leander ISD Secondary Summer School Office will be closed for summer break from June 24th – July 7th and we will return to the office on July 8th. Below are some frequently asked questions.

When will I hear from my summer school teacher?

Session I teachers will send a welcome email with information that is specific to their course (Google Meets, Google Classroom, etc.) on May 31st.  If you register after 10:00 on May 31st, please allow additional time for teachers to send you your class information. If you do not have your class information by 7:30 a.m. on June 3rd refer to the Google link and summer school phone number at the top of this summer school website to ask for help.

Session II teachers will send out class information by July 5th. If you register on or after July 5th, you will receive an email from the summer school office on July 8, 2024, with your teacher’s name and Google link. If you do not have your class information by 7:30 a.m. on July 8, 2024, refer to the Google link and the summer school phone number at the top of this summer school website to ask for help.

What do I do if I do not get an email from my teacher by June 3rd (Session I) or July 8th (Session II)?

Refer to the Google link and summer school phone number at the top of this summer school website to ask for help.  The Google Meet link will be open from 8:00 a.m.–1 p.m.

Does attendance matter for morning teacher-led classes?

Yes, attendance is very important and is monitored very closely. On a student’s third absence, they are dropped from the course with no exceptions. Three (3) tardies equal one absence; being more than 15 minutes late or leaving class early is considered an absence. Each day of summer school is equal to about two weeks’ worth of curriculum during the school year, so the time in class is precious.

What happens if our internet goes down?

If you lose connection, please contact the summer school office for us to help solve the problem. You can also contact the Help Desk for Leander ISD at 512-570-0566. If you do not reach out to the campus/district, we will not be able to help and you will be considered absent.

When does registration close?

Session I and Session II registration on the website and/or in-person is open through June 3rd at 10:00 a.m. Some course registrations will close before this date (once classes are at capacity). You will see which courses are open/closed when you register through EdPay.

How many courses can I register for?

You can sign up for one teacher-led semester course in the morning and one online/Edgenuity semester course in the afternoon. Only register for one in the morning and one in the afternoon for each session for up to a total of 2 courses per session. If the afternoon online course is finished early enough, we will load another course at no cost to you.

If we live in the district zone but attend a school other than an LISD school, can we attend summer school? 

Yes, you may attend our morning teacher-led classes. The afternoon online Edgenuity classes are only for LISD students.

How do I register if I live in the district but do not attend LISD schools?

Contact Maritza Chase at [email protected] or call 512-570-0328 to make an appointment. You may also attend one of our three registration events listed on this website. The sooner you can register, the more likely the class is to be open. Registration is cash only. Families must bring the student’s birth certificate, photo ID, and utility bill with their local address/name.

Can I work on my Edgenuity course all summer?

No. The Edgenuity courses will close/be turned off at 5 p.m. on the last day of each session. The content/progress will not be lost. Students who started a course in the first session and also signed up for the second session will have the course re-loaded and will work from where they left off. Students who do not complete a course they began during summer school will work with their campus in the fall to determine when they will complete that course (typically in a credit recovery class period). No progress will be lost or deleted.
