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 Governing Board 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.

The district shall offer summer instructional programs for high school seniors who need courses for graduation prior to September. (Education Code 41976.5)

(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, 37252.2, 37252.8, 37253, 41505-41506; 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. 6162.5 - Student Assessment)

(cf. 6179 - Supplemental Instruction)

Enrollment Priorities

Priority to enroll in summer programs shall be given to district students who:

1. Need course credits in order to graduate from high school by September

2. Are eligible for supplemental instruction on the basis of retention, recommendation for retention, or insufficient progress toward the state high school exit examination pursuant to Education Code 37252 and 37252.2

The remaining openings shall be offered to district students on a lottery basis.

To the extent that space is available after district students have enrolled, remaining openings in high school summer 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 three excused absences may not receive credit for their summer session class(es). Students who have more than one unexcused absence may not receive credit for their summer session class(es).

(cf. 5113 - Absences and Excuses)

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

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.
