Teachers are on campus to assist students with required in-person testing, in-person tutoring, lab sessions, and anything else students may need during school hours. Students who prefer to work on campus are welcome to come to class anytime during the bell schedule.  Students come at their convenience.  
Summer School Rules:
  1. Students can complete the majority of work online at home, but are required to take exams in person.
  2. Complete and submit the mandatory Orientation assignment online no later than June 30. Students that do notsubmit the Orientation          assignment by June 30 will be dropped from the class.
  3. All work must be completed no later than noon on July 17, 2024.
  • Although not required, it is strongly recommended that students attend an in-person Orientation session during the first two weeks of school.
  • Orientation sessions will be offered every hour on the hour during school hours for the first two weeks of summer school. Students can attend any time that is convenient. Attending an in-person Orientation session will give students the opportunity to meet their teacher and to thoroughly understand any requirements specific to their class. In past years, student success was directly linked to attendance at an Orientation session.
Drop Deadline:
  • If you wish to drop a course once enrolled, you must do so no later than July 9.
  • All grades earned will be reflected on the CUSD permanent transcript.
  • After July 9, any grade earned will be recorded on the CUSD permanent transcript.
Parent Emails: NOTE: ALL email goes ONLY to the parent email in Aeries
  • Starting in Mid-Late April:  Welcome email explaining how the class works, dates, locations, and other important information.
  • On June 9: Second email with teacher assignment and more specific details.
Work Load and Exams (Can I still have a summer break?):
  • Students should plan to spend approximately 15-25 hours per week, per class, completing online work at home or school, at the beach, or on an airplane. Students must be able to set aside ample time to work on  the course in order to be successful.
  • Students can come in to take exams any time school is in session on any day or time that is convenient.  Many students choose to take multiple exams in one sitting, reducing the number of in-person testing days to 2-3 days over the course of the 6-week summer session per course. Plan for 30-60 minutes to complete each exam, with about 5-7 exams per course.
  • With this flexibility in mind, students can arrange to take their exams so that they can still take family vacations, attend sports camps, hold a summer job, or binge-watch Netflix.

Students CANNOT take both Health and Geometry during the same summer.
