(cf. 6143 - Courses of Study)

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

Summer school may be used to provide direct, systematic and intensive supplemental instruction to students in grades 2 through 6 who have been retained at grade level, identified as performing at the at-risk level, or identified as having a deficiency in mathematics, reading or written expression based on the district's multiple-measure criteria.

This program shall offer direct reading instruction based on phonics and phonemic awareness and/or other state-approved instructional methodologies. To be eligible to participate, a student must have a test score that places him/her at one or more grade levels below the grade level he/she will be leaving at the end of the school year. (Education Code 54036)

At the middle school level, the district shall offer summer instructional programs for:

1. Eighth grade students who need courses for promotion prior to September (Education Code 41976.5)

Special Education

Extended-year special education and related services shall be provided for substantially disabled students between the close of one academic year and the beginning of the succeeding academic year when so specified in the student's individualized education program (IEP). Eligible students shall be those for whom the IEP team determines that interruption of the student's educational program may cause regression, making it impossible or unlikely that the student will attain the level of self-sufficiency and independence otherwise expected. (Education Code 41976.5; 5 CCR 3043)

The services provided during the extended-year program shall be comparable in standards, scope and quality to the special education program offered during the regular school year. (5 CCR 3043)
