    The San Mateo Union High School District will offer four opportunities for students to recover or accumulate credits during the summer of 2021. There will be a session at the beginning of the summer for students to complete courses started on our Edgenuity platform - either in Credit Recovery or Independent Study. Second, there will be a set of in-person offerings (two sessions) for rising 12th Graders at three separate campuses. Third, English Learners (grades 10-12) will have opportunities to earn up to 10 credits at the Adult School. Finally, there will be a virtual, teacher-led program (two sessions) for all 10-12th grade students who prefer to take courses virtually from home.

    What follows are the details of these offerings:

    • Session I: Students in grades 10-12 (including non-grads [class of 2021]) who need to complete courses initiated in Edgenuity at any time from summer 2020-May 2021. Students making up courses from Summer 2020 will have access to CR/NC grades. All other makeups/course completions will receive a grade.

    • Session II & III: Rising 10-12 Grade students may take in-person Summer school. It will now be held at San Mateo High School ONLY.  These classes are strongly recommended for seniors who have struggled with distance learning (via Zoom/Canvas).

    • ELD Session: In addition, students in English Language Development courses (CHS, HHS, MHS and SMHS) will also have the opportunity to take a hybrid/in-person Summer School program at the San Mateo Adult School. 

    • Session II & III: Finally, all students (grades 10-12) will have the opportunity to take teacher-led virtual courses (much like classes taught during the 2020-21 school year) via Zoom/Canvas for Credit Recovery in core subjects as well as Accelerated Geometry or Health (for first time credit - HHS students only). 

    Summer School Dates:

    • Session 1 (Edgenuity only): June 1 to 16 from 8:30 a.m.  -  1 p.m.
