Cautionary Notice: As added and amended by SBX3 4 (Ch. 12, Third Extraordinary Session, Statutes of 2009), ABX4 2 (Ch. 2, Fourth Extraordinary Session, Statutes of 2009), and SB 70 (Ch. 7, Statutes of 2011), Education Code 42605 grants districts flexibility in "Tier 3" categorical programs. The Atascadero USD has accepted this flexibility and thus is deemed in compliance with the statutory or regulatory program and funding requirements for these programs for the 2008-09 through 2014-15 fiscal years. As a result, the district may temporarily suspend certain provisions of the following policy or regulation that reflect these requirements. For further information, please contact the Superintendent or designee.

Cautionary Notice 2010-13: AB 1610 (Ch. 724, Statutes of 2010) amended Education Code 37252.2 to relieve districts from the obligation, until July 1, 2013, to perform any activities that are deemed to be reimbursable state mandates under that section. As a result, certain provisions of the following policy or administrative regulation that reflect those requirements may be suspended.

The Board of Trustees recognizes that summer school provides valuable opportunities for students to improve their skills and make academic progress. When the need is demonstrated and funds are available, the Superintendent or designee with Board approval, shall establish summer school day and/or evening classes for purposes of remediation, enrichment or acceleration.


First priority to enroll in summer high school classes shall be given to District students who need course credits in order to graduate by September or who were assessed as not meeting the District's adopted standards of proficiency in basic skills.

(cf. 6011 - Academic Standards)

(cf. 6146.1 - High School Graduation Requirements/Standards of Proficiency)

The remaining openings shall be offered to District students on a first-come first-serve basis.

To the extent that space is available after District students have enrolled, remaining openings in summer high school classes for core academic subjects shall be open to private school students.


Because summer courses cover extensive instructional content in a relatively short time period, consistent class attendance is crucial.

Students who have more than 12 hours of absence may not receive credit for their summer session class(es).

(cf. 5113 - Absences and Excuses)

(cf. 6154 - Homework/Make-Up Work)
