Enrollment & Attendance Requirements
Students can remediate up to 5 credits in one session, this is one semester of a course. Students should plan on attending two sessions if they need to remediate 10 credits. Due to the compressed nature of the summer credit recovery program, there are no excused absences during the HS summer sessions. Students need to plan on attending each day of the session and students may be dropped from the course after 1 absence.
 
Curricular Approach
All of the courses offered in Summer School are credit recovery. Meaning that they are intended to remediate gaps in skills and understanding for students who have at least once attempted to earn credits in a course and were unable to do so. We utilize a hybrid approach to remediation. This allows us to personalize the experience for each student to address his/her specific needs. Like they are during the traditional school year students will be assigned a classroom with a credentialed teacher. In addition to this teacher, students will be enrolled in an A-G (when appropriate) approved online course with a credentialed teacher overseeing that portion of the class.
 
The online classes utilize a screener that will help the teachers determine the specific skills and knowledge that the student needs to remediate. Students are then assigned a course of study that is designed to focus on their unique needs. The classroom teacher is there to act as a tutor and mentor as the student works through the assignments, projects, and assessments of the online course. Students must attend each day for a minimum of 4.5 hours. Students may continue to work on the online portion of the course at home, on their own time to accelerate completion of the course.
 
Academic integrity is of the utmost importance and will be strictly enforced. Students who are unable to maintain academic integrity will be dropped from the summer courses and unable to recover credit or replace grades. 
 
At the point that a student demonstrates mastery, they will be assigned a grade and may discontinue daily attendance.
