Summer School Overview

  • HISD Promotion Retention Summer Program is  for students in grades PK-12 who are enrolled as of the last day of school in an HISD school and need to meet the promotion standards. In meeting the HISD Primary Goal of Increasing Student Achievement, supplemental summer programs play a critical role in the continued support of students at every grade level in mastering the academic objectives required to satisfy promotion standards and demonstrate preparedness for the next grade level. These summer programs are coordinated at the district level, planned at the campus level, and customized to meet the individual needs of students. The extended time offered by summer programs provides students with additional opportunities filled with rigorous and relevant accelerated instruction and reinforcement to achieve the schools year’s final expected outcomes. It is the goal of HISD that through effective summer programs, all students who need this extended time will meet the required promotion standards, be prepared for success at the next grade level, and be on-track to graduate with their peers. ​


    If you have questions about your child attending summer school or promotion standards, please contact your child's teacher directly.
