4. The district continues to update Worthington’s Summer School Program offerings and information on the district website. Options exist for students to recover credit from failed classes, at no cost to the family, and additional options allow for students to get-ahead.
Several families have requested information about online courses students can take outside our district over the summer to alleviate their course load during the school year and/or make sure they are on track with credits for participation Walkabout during their last semester at Linworth. By August of their senior year, Linworth students must have earned a minimum of 17 credits; this total must include 1.0 credit Math III and .5 Physical Education. Worthington accepts transfer credit from accredited programs. Treca has been the most popular option for a variety of courses over the past several years.
The grade earned in an accredited online course taken outside our district will not calculate into the student’s GPA; however, the course name and grade is stated on the Worthington transcript. The grade/credit is used to calculate HS athletic eligibility, but if NCAA initial eligibility is a potential concern, it is important to discuss this with our school counselor.
5. Attention Senior Parents/Guardians: Is your child looking for part-time employment over the summer or during college next year? Are they interested in working full-time next year to save money? If so, then we have a wonderful opportunity for them! On Friday, May 4, we are going to host our first annual Job Fair at the Worthington Education Center from 9-11 AM. The WEC is located at 200 E.
