The ICAN (Individual Credit Advancement Now) program provides online credit recovery opportunities for students at their home high school, using special web-based coursework developed by Spokane Virtual Learning (SVL). ICAN classes help students meet their on-time graduation goals, and classroom times are scheduled at each Spokane Public Schools high school so that students can be assisted in person and online.
ICAN is for students in need of recovering a credit they previously failed.
ICAN courses are specially designed web-based SVL courses using standards based focus, which are meant to assess each student's prior content knowledge in order to guide a student through only the core learning standards they need to demonstrate mastery of the course content. On average ICAN courses take students 6-8 weeks to complete.
Students enroll for ICAN courses through their high school counselors and will be placed when a space opens. ICAN enrollment is continual throughout the school year, so as students finish their courses, new students are added. ICAN classroom times are offered during the school day or after school, depending on the school.
