Even though a portion of our enrichment classes have some academic basis, they are not structured to provide remediation of any academic area. Therefore, students with "F" grades will not be recommended for Enrichment Summer School as a means of remediation.
Q: If my child is attending academic summer school, how many days can they miss?
A: For High School, students are allowed to miss only 1-day maximum. After the respective maximum limit students will be dropped. This is because they must meet the state minimum minutes to receive credit for the course.
Q: What academic summer school courses are offered at High School?
A: The following courses will be offered at high school - English 9, 10 & 11, World Geography, World History, US History, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Standards Algebra. Summer school applications will be available at your school site counseling office in April.
Q: Is enrichment attendance the same as the academic courses?
A: We encourage all students to attend a full session. There is no maximum number of absences in enrichment since it is donation-based and does not provide academic credit. If the class is full or cancelled, an alternate class can be selected if space is available.
Q: What do I do if I want my child to attend a different campus?
A: It is the parent’s choice on where to they want their child to attend.
Q: If my child is signed up for two sessions of enrichment at the middle school, what happens in the 20 min. break?
A: The students will have a recess break/nutrition break with supervision.
Q: Where will ELD classes for English Learners be located?
A: If your child's teacher recommends an English support class for summer school, classes will be located at the following sites:
· Elementary (current K-4th grade students) - TBD
· Middle (current 5th-7th grade students) - TBD
For more information, you can call the ELD office, 552-5059.
Q: Does the district really need the full, recommended donation if my child will go for only two weeks of a month-long enrichment class?
A: We still need to pay our teachers, the materials and the facility costs for the class for the entire session. A class may be canceled if the donations do not meet the district’s cost for the class.
Q: Why are classes canceled?
A: Summer Enrichment classes use the donations collected to cover the costs involved with running the program. The district will cancel a class if there are not enough students in a class or the cost of keeping the class exceeds the donations collected. The district does not have excess funds and cannot afford to keep a class without the parent donations.
Q: What happens if a class is canceled?
A: If you enrolled in a class and there are not enough students to hold a class, you will be given a comparable class or you will be contacted. If we are unable to accommodate your child in a similar class, or you do not want to identify another class, the district will refund your donations.
