Summer School Opportunity

A student who earns a passing grade in a subject area for one semester and fails in this subject area for the other semester may attend summer school to earn promotion. This allows a student to make-up for a semester failure, but not for a year long failure in a particular subject. Middle school students who attend summer school will be able to take a maximum of two subject area classes for promotion. (Students who have not passed Gateway or subtests of the CRCT may attend summer school and/or retake the sections of the Gateway or subtests of the CRCT that they failed at the end of summer school.)
