Expanded Options: Dufur High School students have the opportunity to apply to participate in the Expanded Options program in conjunction with Columbia Gorge Community College. The Dufur school district will pay the tuition for students who qualify so they can take college classes. Classes may be on-line or at the college campus. Students will earn dual credit; credit from the college and .5 high school credits for a 3 credit college class and 1 high school credit for a 5 credit college class. Students should see the principal if they are interested in more information.
BYU & Acellus On-line Classes: On-line courses are an option for students wishing to take classes that are not available as part of the regular instruction offered at Dufur High School. These courses may be taken as part of the regular school day, or as an additional course taken outside of the regular school day. The district pays fees associated with on-line learning as long as the student completes the course with a "C" or better grade. Parents will be responsible to reimburse the district for classes that students do not pass with a "C" or better grade. Students using this course option for credit recovery will be responsible for all fees for enrollment and text books. There is a variety of curriculum options available, including Career and Technical Eduation courses such as Electrical, HVAC & Refrigeration and Plumbing.
Keystone Credit Recovery: The Keystone School is an accredited on-line private school that provides packets for students who need to make up credits. To explore this option, see Ms. Henderson-Guidance Counselor or Mrs. Black, on-line coordinator.
