Please note: The school is closed on Fridays during the summer; therefore, there will be NO classes on Fridays.
All coursework will be completed on the Odysseyware computer program. Students will work individually, progress at their own pace, and therefore finish at different times. Students are given the option of completing the work at school or at home. Teachers are available during the eight (8) days of summer school for tutoring. When a student has successfully completed the required program assignments, he or she should contact Karen Jones at TCCHS regarding related Georgia Milestone End of Course tests. If a student has not completed the course requirements by TBD, the student will be enrolled in the subject area class when school begins on TBD. He or she will not be allowed to continue in the Odysseyware credit repair program.
