This past year, the District offered for the first time, a credit recovery program as part of APEX. It means the District is giving the opportunity for adults to go back to school and finish their degree.

"We felt there was a need for a program like this in the community," Instructor Dave Berg said.

According to Berg, a total of nine participants started in the program with three actually finishing it. The first meeting for the second year is 6 p.m. tonight (Wednesday) at Room 222 in the High School.

"Anyone that is interested is eligible that is living in the community," Berg, the Alternative Education Instructor for the District said. "Regardless of where they attended High School or how long it's been since they attended High School."
