There are two in-building options for credit retrieval. These include paper packets for Renton School District required courses and online courses. Online courses are taken through Aventa Learning and students can access their course from home through www.aventalearning.com with their assigned username and password. Online classes are only available to students who have unsuccessfully taken a class before.
Students needing credit recovery must be scheduled through the Counseling Office and must express the ability to work independently and have a commitment to successful completion.
The certificated mentor for credit recovery is Ms. A. Shewey. She can be reached by phone at 425-204-3168.
