Summer school operates on a three infraction policy. On the commission of a third strike, there will be a mandatory parent conference scheduled with the summer school principal. At that conference, the summer school principal will determine if it is appropriate for the student to continue in summer school. Failure to attend the conference will result in an automatic drop from summer school.
The following behaviors will count towards the three infractions:
Arriving late to class
Not attending class
Not remaining and attending for the full class time
Assignments (including homework)not completed
Not completing assigned work with a passing grade (70%)
Behavioral issues such as classroom disruption, foul language, etc.
In addition, any major behavioral issue (e.g. fights, drugs, etc) will result in an immediate drop from summer school.
Note: all students who do not attend the first day of summer school will be automatically dropped in order to make space for wait-listed students.
Partial Credit Policy:
During summer school, students will receive credit for any work which is successfully completed. In some cases this may result in an award of partial credits. When partial credits are awarded, both the grade and the number of credits will be determined based on the value of assignments completed. Not all assignments are of equal value.
During summer school students are expected to work at home each night. Parents should expect that each course will take 80-90 hours to complete. Therefore an average student should be doing a total 8-9 hours of work each day (2 - 4 hours at school and the rest at home).
