High School Summer Learning Programs

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District is excited to share information about our summer learning programs.  Through our Personalized Learning Initiatives, SRVUSD is expanding educational opportunities for students during the summer months. These options are only available to students beginning  the second semester of their 8th grade year.

 

The 2018 high school school summer learning options include:

  • Offer SRVUSD high school summer school courses beyond remediation. High school students will be able to take SRVUSD summer classes to advance and fulfill graduation requirements.

  • Accept accredited non-district courses to meet SRVUSD advancement or graduation requirements and be included on official transcripts.

  • Partner with Diablo Valley College to host summer courses on SRVUSD campuses.

 

ONLY students currently enrolled in SRVUSD are eligible to register and take the summer school courses.

 

It is important for parents/guardians to let the district know what courses students are planning on taking this summer in order for SRVUSD counselors to plan the fall schedule.  Please do this by clicking on the appropriate link in the boxes below. 

Important note to parents of 8th grade students

  • 8th grade students are eligible to begin the advancement process beginning the second semester of their 8th grade year, and not before. (7th grade students are not eligible.)
  • Courses that are going to be used to fulfill graduation requirements  (i.e. Algebra 1 and Biology) cannot be completed before the end of the 8th grade year. 
  • In order to be counted as a graduation requirement, courses must be completed AFTER the student finishes their 8th grade year.  For current 8th graders, coursework must not begin until January of 2018 and cannot be completed until June 2, 2018 or later.
  • Course enrollment dates will be checked during the application approval process. Courses that begin prior to the beginning of the second semester will not be approved.
  • Course end dates will be checked upon official transcript submission.  Courses that end prior to the completion of the 8th grade year will not be accepted for graduation requirement fulfillment and cannot be placed on the high school transcript.

Program #1 - SRVUSD High School Summer School Opportunities

Courses for Advancement and/or Graduation Requirement Fulfillment

Where: California High and Charlotte Wood Middle School campuses

When: June 11 - July 20  (no school on Friday, June 29 or Wednesday, July 4)

Time: 8 a.m.- 12:40 p.m. 

Cost:  Free to SRVUSD students

 

The wait list has now been closed for all of our Summer School courses as all classes are full

Thank you for your interest in our Summer School programs.


 

Parents/students will be notified of site placement and time slot assignments at a later date.  We are still working on those details.

 

Hybrid learning model: The hybrid model combines teacher-led instruction with an on-line program called Edgenuity. Students will be in a summer school teacher-led class for two hours a day on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, they will have an opportunity to either meet with the teacher 1 on 1 for help or work from home on the on-line component of the course. 

 

Students who were hoping to use one of our summer courses for advancement purposes but did not get in still have time to register for Advancement Via Outside Institution (see Program #2 process below). The deadline to enroll in an advancement course from an outside institution is June 25. 

 


Courses for Remediation /Credit Recovery


Where: California High and Charlotte Wood Middle School campuses

When: Session 1 -  June 11 - June 28 (no school on Friday, June 29)

            Session 2 - July 2 - July 20 (no school on Wednesday, July 4)

Time: 8 a.m.- 12:40 p.m. 

Enrollment for Remediation Summer School is coordinated through the student's counselor and not via this site. 

 

SRVUSD summer school will continue to offer courses for students who need to remediate a D or F grade. Students should meet with their counselors to learn more about this program.   

 

Courses being offered include:

  • English 9, English 10 and English 11
  • Spanish 1
  • US History and World History
  • Biology and Chemistry
  • Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 and High School Math
  • ESY - Special Ed

Venture School - Independent Study Summer School


As in past years, Venture School will continue to have an Independent Study summer school program for high school students that are credit deficient and/or want to remediate a D or F grade. Every summer about 160 students from the other high schools in the District attend Venture summer school. Venture School offers greater flexibility in terms of when during the 6 weeks of summer school students can begin or end their course work and how often students need to come to school each week.  In general, students are only required to come to school once a week to turn in homework and take tests. However, students are encouraged to come in for one-on-one instruction or math labs as often as necessary to master their course material.

 

Venture summer school students can miss one week of school, which may be helpful given family vacation plans, and once a week attendance can reduce the transportation challenges created by having to go from Alamo, for example, to conventional summer school at Cal High every day. Summer jobs and sports training are among many other reasons why daily summer school attendance may be a challenge. Ask the counselor at your home school if Venture Summer School is appropriate for you.

 

 


How many days of summer school can my student miss?


We strongly discourage students from missing any days of summer school due to the compressed timeline. However, we know this is not always possible.  For remedial summer school classes and advancement classes that are not taught through hybrid learning, students can only miss one day per session. For hybrid learning classes, students can miss up to 3 days over both sessions.  Any work assigned during a student’s absence is the student’s responsibility to make up.  All students must show up on the first day or they will be dropped from the class.

Program #2 - Summer Advancement/Graduation Requirement Fulfillment via Outside Institutions

Students are now able to take courses from outside institutions (i.e. BYU Online, NUVHS, Quarry Lane, Etc.) for advancement and/or graduation requirement fulfillment and have these courses added to their SRVUSD transcript.  A maximum of 40 credits can be added to a student's transcript over the four years of high school.Click here for the informational letter that explains this program.

 

Outside institutions must meet the following requirements:

  • Must be WASC or regionally accredited and offers coursework leading to a high school diploma
    • Courses taken through providers that are WASC accredited as Supplementary Ed will not be accepted for credit.
  • Must be UC approved
  • Must issue official transcripts with letter grades 

Click here for a list of courses/institutions that have been used in the past.  SRVUSD cannot recommend any specific program. Students will need to find their own proctors for outside institution courses; SRVUSD will not proctor outside exams. 

 

Note:  Students can only advance one level per subject per year.


Advancement via Outside Institutions


Registration process:

  • Step 1 - Register for the desired course at the outside institution of choice
  • Step 2 - Obtain proof of enrollment document which will be needed to finalize SRVUSD registration
    • (Click here for more information on Proof of Enrollment documentation and sample documents)
  • Step 3 - Sign up for an SRVUSD Learning Stream Course System account if you don't already have one
  • Step 4 - Complete the SRVUSD Advancement via Outside Institution Registration form  - Proof of Enrollment documents must be attached for both parts of a two part course
  • Step 5 - Upon completion of the course, hand-deliver an official, unopened transcript to the counseling office to your student's high school no later that Friday, August 17.

Once the application and acceptable Proof of Enrollment documentation has been reviewed, parents will receive an email notifying them of their status.  If the document that was submitted for Proof of Enrollment was incorrect or not sufficient, parents will receive an email letting them know that additional documentation is required.  Parents are able to go back into their SRVUSD Learning Stream Course  System accounts to upload additional documents (click here for instructions). Parents will also be able to monitor the status of their application by logging in to their SRVUSD Learning Stream accounts. Please allow 10 business days for processing. 

 

The deadline to register for the SRVUSD Advancement program is June 25.

 


Graduation Requirement Fulfillment via Outside Institutions


Students are now able to take courses at outside institutions to fulfill graduation requirements and have these courses placed on their transcripts.  Courses, including Algebra 1,  that will be eligible to be added to an SRVUSD transcript to fulfill a graduation requirement must be completed after the end of a student's 8th grade year. Courses that can be taken include:

  • English 9, English 10, English 11, English 12 and AP English
  • US History, World History, AP History (Euro, US or World), World Geography, Economics and Government

Notes: 

  • PE 9 cannot be taken outside of SRVUSD. 
  • Any course taken to fulfill a graduation requirement MUST be placed on the SRVUSD transcript.  Students are limited to 4 classes (40 credits) over their four years of high school. Schools will share more information about this process in September.
  • Grade level courses cannot be used for advancement purposes (i.e., if a student is going in to the 10th grade in September and takes English 10 the summer prior, they cannot take English 11 as a 10th grader. The intent is to free up a period of their day to take another class.)

WARNING: The course and/or outside institution you choose to fulfill a graduation requirement for SRVUSD may not be accepted by the UC/CSU system, private colleges and universities, out-of-state institutions, or NCAA as fulfilling entrance requirements. It is your responsibility to check with an admissions officer from each campus to which you intend to apply to ensure it will be accepted.

 

Click here to submit your Intent to Enroll in an Outside Institution for Graduation Requirement Fulfillment. Parents will need to create an SRVUSD Learning Stream  Account if they do not already have one. 

 

The deadline to register for the SRVUSD Graduation Requirement Fulfillment program is June 25.

Program #3 - SRVUSD and DVC Summer School Partnership

SRVUSD/DVC Courses for Advancement and/or Graduation Requirement Fulfillment

 

Important Note: Our Intent to Enroll form was only used to gauge interest in DVC courses so we could let DVC know how many students are interested in each course for planning purposes. It did not enroll students for the course. 

 

Where:  California High School and Charlotte Wood Middle School Campuses

When:  June 18 - July 26

Session 1 - 8:15 am - 10:20 pm

Session 2 - 10:30 am - 12:35 pm

Courses being offered:

  • Geometry - MATH 114
  • Statistics - MATH 142
  • American Sign Language (ASL) - SIGN 280
  • Introduction to Business - BUS 109

Please do not call DVC for additional information.


DVC Enrollment Procedures for High School Students

 

Step 1 - APPLY TO DVC: Apply by submitting an online application at Open CCC.

Step 2 - COMPLETE Special Admission Recommendation Form - Please note that this form must be signed by the student's high school principal (or designee), the student and a parent or guardian so plan ahead!  Bring this form with you to the first day of class if you are 10th grade or below.

 

CLEAR PREREQUISITES, if interested in taking MATH-114 or MATH-142 prior to submitting the Special Admissions Recommendation Form (in Step 2).

 

Ways to Clear the Prerequisites:

  • For MATH-114 (Geometry) – Take ISSA (DVC’s online Math Assessment.) Once the assessment is completed, SAVE and PRINT the results and attach the results to the completed  Special Admission Recommendation Form
  • For MATH-142 (Statistics) – Turn in the completed Prerequisite Equivalency Form to the DVC -San Ramon Campus Admissions and Records Office with a copy of the student’s transcript showing TWO COMPLETED SEMESTERS of Algebra II.  Please allow 2-3 business days for processing.  If the student is currently in Algebra II, they can sign up for an in-person Math assessment at either of the DVC campuses.

In order to be eligible to participate in Program #3 - SRVUSD and DVC Summer School Partnership students must have a DVC ID #  (you will receive this within 48 hours of applying) and have completed the necessary prerequisites by JUNE 12th to be considered for enrollment. Please follow the steps below to complete these requirements.

 

Step 3 – Registration- Per DVC policies, high school juniors and seniors will not be able to register for the courses until Tuesday, May 29.  Students in 10th grade or below will not be confirmed in a course until the first day of class Monday, June 18 through a lottery.  The lottery is open to all students present on the first day for remaining seats.

 

PROSPECTIVE GEOMETRY STUDENTS PLEASE NOTE: There are 2 sections of Geometry being offered at each site (Charlotte Wood Middle School and Cal High) one section is from 8:15 – 10:20 am and the other from 10:30 am to 12:35 pm.  There are a total of 84 seats at each site. There was an overwhelming demand for this class so specific lotteries will be held in the cafeterias at both Charlotte Wood and Cal High beginning at 8 am, for both sections.

  • Important Lottery Information: Students MUST BE PRESENT at the lottery to secure their seat.  Students must select one site and attend that lottery only. Parents will not be able to enter students in a lottery if the student is not present.

IMPORTANT! If students do not get in to their desired course at DVC, they will be able to enroll in a substitute course from an alternate outside institution by following the  instructions for Program #2 - Advancement via Outside Institution above. The deadline to enroll in the Advancement Via Outside Institution program is June 25.

 

However, parents/students must be aware that all courses taken for summer advancement must allow enough time to complete the course, take the final exam, order/receive the official transcript and  then  hand-deliver it to the counseling office at their student's high school no later than Friday, August 17. Students who have to wait until the first day of DVC classes to enroll but do not get in to their desired course may not have time to complete this process which would prevent them from being able to advance in a class this fall.

 

Important note about NUVHS: NUVHS would not be a good choice as an alternative to DVC as NUVHS courses are not self-paced and take a minimum of 4 weeks to complete. Since each course consists of two parts (Part A and Part b), it takes an absolute minimum of 8 weeks to finish an NUVHS course.  Therefore, NUVHS courses must be started no later than June 11 in order to allow enough time to fulfill the program's requirements. 


 

DVC will continue to offer their usual summer courses at the DVC campuses in San Ramon and Pleasant Hill.  Students who wish to enroll in these courses will need to follow the DVC enrollment procedures listed above for High School Students above AND complete the Advancement via Outside Institution registration process (explained above) once they have successfully registered at DVC.
