Students may take courses online or through correspondence for credit attainment, remediation, or credit recovery. LPHS credit will be issued upon successful completion of the course. Depending on the program chosen, payment is usually required in advance and is the responsibility of the parents and students. Pre-approval of distance learning courses is required in order for the credit to be placed on an LPHS transcript. If a student earns a failing grade in a distance learning course, the F is calculated into his/her GPA and placed on the LPHS transcript. Contact your counselor if you are interested in any form of distance learning. Seniors taking distance learning courses to fulfill graduation requirements must complete them by May 1 of their senior year in order to participate in graduation ceremonies.
