LAFAYETTE – Due to various issues associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, many students in the Chambers County School District were unable to complete all of their required course credits during the 2020-21 school year. Therefore, two summer sessions of credit recovery classes are being offered through the district’s Inspire Academy in LaFayette for students in grades 7 through 12.

The first session will begin on Monday, June 7, 2021, and end on Tuesday, June 22. The second session will begin on June 22 and continue until July 13. Classes will run Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. CDT.

“The Chambers County School District will refund each $80 fee for a successfully completed credit recovery course with a passing grade that is taken during the assigned class window,” said school superintendent Casey Chambley.

Students who complete and pass their course will receive a refund in July, 2021. Class attendance is mandatory, and students with more than one absence will be dropped from the course and forfeit their opportunity to a refund.

Class space is limited, and will be filled in a first-come, first-served basis. However, priority will be given to seniors in need of credit recovery for graduation purposes. Students needing credit should contact either their school counselor or principal to complete an application for enrollment. Transportation will be provided to and from Five Points School, LaFayette High School and Valley High School. Participating students will be picked up at FPS at 7:30 a.m. CDT, and students from LHS at 7:50 a.m. CDT. Students from VHS will be transported from the school
