On May 29, 75 people gathered to recognize students who made great strides in credit recovery through the Student Achievement Program (SAP), a program of the Ottawa County Juvenile Court, in partnership with the Department of Job and Family Services and the EHOESC.

Twenty-three students took advantage of SAP this year. Of those, eight students earned enough credits to graduate from high school and five students completed two years’ worth of work in one year.
The program provides an educational alternative to the traditional classroom. Students who are credit deficient complete all their courses online. Students hear a variety of speakers and take numerous field trips. They also participate in physical education, counseling and life skills development. Personal growth, self-awareness, interpersonal skills and responsibility for one’s behavior are stressed throughout the program.

Some of the highlights of the year were a tour of Guardian Industries in Millbury, a presentation by Captain Steve Levorchick on the Ottawa County Special Response Team, completion of a first aid/CPR course, and participation in Tiger Woods’ “The First Tee” golf program at the Oak Harbor Golf Club.
