Summer School   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Education recognizes that summer school provides valuable opportunities for students to improve their basic skills and make academic progress. To the extent that need is demonstrated and adequate funds are available, the Board may authorize the Superintendent or designee to establish summer school day and/or evening classes for purposes of remediation, enrichment or acceleration.

The district shall offer summer instructional programs for graduating high school seniors who need courses for graduation prior to the beginning of the next school year or who have not made sufficient progress toward passing the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE). (Education Code 41976.5; 37252)

(cf. 6146.1 High School Graduation Requirements)

The district's summer school program may be used to provide supplemental instruction for students failing to meet academic requirements and/or students who desire enrichment in core academic subjects in accordance with law, Board policy and administrative regulation. (Education Code 37252, 37252.5, 37252.6, 53029, 53093; 5 CCR 11472)

(cf. 5123 - Promotion/Acceleration/Retention)

(cf. 6011 - Academic Standards)

(cf. 6143 - Courses of Study)

(cf. 6146.5 - Elementary/Middle School Graduation Requirements)

(cf. 6162.52 - High School Exit Examination)

(cf. 6179 - Supplemental Instruction)

Enrollment Priorities

1. District Students: Priority to enroll in summer programs shall be given to district students

2. Non-district Students: To the extent that space is available after district students have enrolled non-district students who have failed to meet academic requirements may enroll in summer school.

Attendance

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

Rotation of School Sites

Sites for summer school programs may be rotated in an effort to make summer school programs more accessible to all students, regardless of residence or regular attendance area, and to equalize long-term facility and maintenance needs.
