    A quick guide to Summer School Classes  

     

    Virtual attendance is mandatory. Students with more than one absence may be dropped from Summer School.

     

    How Does Summer School Work?

    This summer we will offer a virtual summer school.  There are really three types of summer school options for students, Original Credit (student has never taken the course), IBDP Summer School (for students who are IB Diploma Candidates but did not take Algebra 1 in middle school) and Credit Recovery (for students who were previously seated in the course but did not earn credit).  Academic Deans have already made students aware of the need for summer school, but will send one more additional notice to student email and parent email on file next week as grades for this semester are finalized.  It is important that students clear any and all courses for which they have not earned credit in previous semesters.  These are noted on the course schedule and are coded with a period 99.  This summer only, students will not have to attend face-to-face and will not take paper-based tests.  All instruction and assessment will be online.  Students will keep their HISD laptop through summer school. It is not necessary to email your Academic Dean, unless you have not received an email by June 2 and believe summer school is necessary.
