High school academic support courses are available in four content areas: Mathematics, English,Social Studies and Science. Students who have a minimum grade for the year of 50 or high are eligible for summer school and the opportunity to remediate a failing grade. Summer school is a 4-week, 40-hour program. The summer school grade will represent a fifth quarter grade.
Students are allowed one documented absence within the 4-week program. Additional absences would be granted at the discretion of the Coordinator predicated on the percentage of work completed by the student. If the student is on track to complete and pass the course on time, he/she may be awarded a 2nd or 3rd day off. If the student is not on track to complete and pass the course, the additional time off would not be awarded.
These academic courses may also be taken for preview purposes, to prepare for the upcoming school year. If taken for preview, no grade is given and the student does not need to meet the attendance requirements.
Courses within the four content areas include:
Mathematics: Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, and Pre-Calculus
English: English 9, 10, and 11
Social Studies: US History 1, US History 2, and World History
Science: Biology, Chemistry

This is an exemptive program that enables the student to focus on his/her areas of need and to work at his/her own pace.
