Summer School 2013: Operating Procedures
Purpose of Summer School
- Provide remedial courses for subjects in which students did not receive credit during the regular school year.
- Provide enrichment opportunities to students who would like to improve their skills in order to successfully complete courses during the subsequent school year
High School Eligibility
- Only courses taken during the previous school year may be taken for credit.
- To receive credit for a course taken in Summer School the student must have a minimum final grade of 50 in the regular school year course.
- The student must have been enrolled in the course at the end of the year for a full year course and at the end of the semester for a single semester course.
- The student must meet attendance requirements for the course.
- A student who does not meet the above criteria is not allowed to attend Summer School and must repeat that course during the next school year.
Credits & Grading for an Entire Course Failed During the Regular School Year
Summer School Grades are PASS or FAIL
- If the student successfully completes the Summer School course, he/she will receive credit for that course on the high school transcript. GPA points are not awarded.
- If a student fails the Summer School course, violates the Summer School Attendance Policy, violates the Code of Conduct, or fails to pay full tuition, the student will not receive credit for the course.
Credits & Grading for 4th Marking Period Course Make-up
- A student who has earned an F, D-, D, or D+ during the 4th Marking Period in a Regular Year course will be allowed to make-up the grade for the 4th Marking Period ONLY.
- The student may take only courses offered in Summer School.
- The student will attend the entire 5 week Summer School course in the subject but will only have the 4th Marking Period grade changed upon successfully meeting the Summer School Grade Requirements.
- The student must earn a Summer School grade of at least a C- to have the 4th Marking Period grade changed.
- If the student earns a Summer School grade of at least a C-, a grade of C- will be substituted for the student’s 4th Term grade on the report card only. The C- grade will then be used to recalculate the un-weighted 4th Marking Period GPA.
- If a student does not earn a grade in the Summer School Course of at least a C- or violates the Summer School Attendance Policy or Code of Conduct, the student will not receive a grade for the course.
- The earned Summer School grade cannot be used, in any way, to alter the Final Grade for the year in the Regular School Year course.
- Please register in person so that your GPA can be calculated to determine if the Summer School course will be beneficial.
Eligibility is determined by the Middle School Principal.
