This brief describes an evaluation of the Online Pathway to Graduation (OPTG) program in Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) during the 2012 –2013 school year. The OPTG program provides students who participate in an alternative learning opportunity to earn course credits and graduate from high school. The purposes of the evaluation are: 1) to examine the staff and student experiences in the program, and 2) to assess whether the program helped student participants earn or recover credits necessary for high school graduation.
