All courses must be approved by a counselor prior to registering. Summer school content presented during the 15-day session is equivalent to content presented during a full semester of school. Each class is worth 0.5 credit and students are expected to attend EVERY class! If a student misses more than 2 classes, the student will be dropped from the course with an "F" grade. Students will not be excused for family vacations, camps, or similar activities. Students who cannot commit to the required days for summer school should not register. Students who enroll in summer school must be able to benefit from instructional activities presented in groups with a ratio of 1 teacher to 20 or more students.

Online courses need to completed by the end of July. Online courses are 0.5 credits (unless noted). Students enrolling in online classes for summer school must attend a mandatory scheduled 1 hour Orientation. 

* A proctored final exam will be held.* Students must also attend proctored unit exams at CTE throughout the summer as they work through the material. Online instructors will be available at scheduled times to administer unit exams during regular summer school hours. Students will be allowed to advance through their course ONLY as they complete their unit exams. Most coursework is completed independently by the student. Teacher assistance will be available from 7:35am-12:30pm (Monday-Thursday). Individual teachers will also schedule appointments for students who need additional help. All work must be completed by the end of July.

Because online work is intense, students may only register for one online course at a time during the 8 week summer session. If all required work is completed in a shorter time frame, the summer school principal may authorize the student to take another online course upon teacher recommendation.

Computer Requirements: To complete online work, students must have access to an Internet connection. School computers are available for student use at CTE Monday-Thursday, 7:35am-12:30pm. Coursework is not compatible with iPad.

OUT-OF-DISTRICT students will need to submit an emergency contact form - Community Education will email the form after registration received.
