*Fairfield High School awards credit(s) at the end of each semester (January & May). Students will receive a ½ credit for successful completion of classes at the end of each semester (with a few exceptions). If your student fails the 1st semester of a course required for graduation, he/she will work with their School Counselor to enroll in a credit recovery course and determine the best path forward. If you have questions regarding your student’s grades, please contact your student’s teacher(s). If you have questions regarding credit recovery options, please contact your student’s School Counselor.
*Counselors will begin meeting with seniors on an individual basis during early September to discuss post-secondary plans, which will include a final review of the high school transcript, as well as a review of the college application process, career education options, apprenticeships, etc.  After we meet, a packet of information will go home with each student for their reference.  
We encourage all seniors to make sure they are able to log into Naviance, as this tool will be used for career and college research, and will be used to request college transcripts and letters of recommendation. If you have any questions about Naviance or your post-secondary plans, please contact your school counselor.
*The Junior Info document is attached to assist students in preparing for their senior year.
