Free Resources for Online Student Tutoring

PVSchools is offering Free Resources for Online Student Tutoring (FROST) to all students in the district who may need this valuable service. FROST is a student-driven, tutoring program that creates a casual, easy to use learning environment for students who need extra assistance with their academic subjects. At PVSchools, qualifying high school students will be available to provide tutoring in any subject matter for any student, kindergarten through 12th grade.

Students can ask questions in our new FROST Google Classroom. Tutors are available Monday through Thursday (except holidays) from 4 to 6 pm and 7 to 9 pm.

Credit Recovery

Pinnacle's Credit Recovery Program is currently designed for Juniors and Seniors who have been identified as missing or short the credits necessary for graduation. In addition to a normal course load, students are enrolled in one (1) PVOnline Course (worth a .5 credit) to assist in credit recovery. Students are also required to attend a one (1) hour on-campus computer lab class after school from 2:15 - 3:15 pm three times per week (Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday) to receive an additional .5 credit and complete their online class. The Classes will be held in Room F-201. This program will allow students to earn an additional 1 credit per semester in conjunction with the 3 credits they already earn each semester.

After-School PVOnline Course (credit and/or grade recovery)

Students are allowed to take an online course after school through PVOnline at home (off campus). These courses can be used to make up missing credits for graduation or to earn a better grade in a course. These online courses are free to juniors and seniors (the cost to freshmen and sophomores is $199.00 per course). Students are only allowed to take one (1) PVOnline Course per semester off campus and will earn a .5 credit. These courses can only be taken through PVOnline. Learn more about PVOnline.
