MS Summer School FAQ

FAQs


What is the structure of the courses that are offered?


All courses are structured to be self-paced.  We do have hard deadlines for students to ensure that they are making progress, but students can work ahead and finish the class early if they choose. 

Do students have to attend class when they have successfully completed a course?

Upon successful completion of a course, students will no longer be required to attend summer school.

Does my student have to stay for the entire class session if they have completed an assignment?

Yes.  Students should plan to stay for the entire time allotted each day for their session.

What happens to my student's schedule for the school year when they complete a summer course?

At the end of each summer session, Mrs. Cain will send a list of students to each counselor that have successfully completed summer school.  At this time they will adjust each students' schedule to ensure they do not take the course again.  For further information, please contact the counselor at your middle school.

What happens if my student does not complete the course?  

Students that fail to meet the requirements of their summer course will not receive credit for that particular course.  No refunds will be provided, and it will be as if they never took the course.  They will have to take class again during the school year.

What if my student will need to miss more than 3 days for a vacation or camp?

A student will be excused from most absences as long as it is within reason (ex: missing 3 weeks of a 4 week course is not within reason).  If you are aware that your student will be absent, please communicate this information as soon as possible to allow us the opportunity to create a plan to better serve your student.  We understand that it is the summer, and we will make every attempt to remain as flexible as possible.

Are courses pass / fail?

Keyboarding students will receive a numerical grade that will go on their high school transcript as a 1/2 credit, but will NOT affect their GPA.  Health and computer literacy students will receive a pass / fail grade for Middle School requirements, but will not count towards their high school transcript.

Is lunch provided?  Can we take them for lunch?

Lunch is NOT provided, however, we will provide the students a place to eat lunch.  You are more than welcome to take your student out to lunch, but please note they will be counted tardy if they are late to their next class.
