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 being at risk of retention, or identified as having a deficiency in mathematics, reading or written expression based on the results of the statewide Standardized Testing and Reporting Program. (Education Code 37252.5)

When more than 10 percent of district students in grades 1 through 3 are reading below grade level, the district may offer a special back-to-basics summer school program designed to increase students' ability to read English. 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.
