Applications maybe be picked up with the School Counselor.
SUMMER SCHOOL IS DESIGNED FOR CREDIT RECOVERY , students who receive Ds and would like to improve their grade will be waitlisted. Priority will be given to any student with an F grade in a class. Next priority for D grade make-ups is based upon year. Applications for ‘Get-Aheads’ will NOT be accepted. ALL Courses are a combination of on-line learning and teacher led instruction called blended learning. Students must attend class daily Monday thru Thursday. Only PE and ELD will have mandatory seat time 5 days a week. Courses are 5 credits each and must be completed within 6 weeks or less. Additional attendance time and days will be required after school or on Fridays for students not making adequate progress. Lab time is available for students without computers at home.
