Summer School Rules and Regulations


Each day of Summer School is roughly equivalent to a week’s worth of coursework during the regular school year. Therefore, daily attendance is required. Any student who misses more than 2 days per semester course (1 day for Driver Education), will NOT receive credit for that semester course. Please do not ask for special consideration.


ALL STUDENTS MUST BE IN ATTENDANCE ON THE LAST DAY OF EACH SEMESTER TO TAKE THE FINAL EXAM. Students will not be permitted to take the final exam early.  Students should be aware that an absence from class on exam day may result in a failing grade for the semester course. There will be no final exam exemptions in Summer School.  All students, regardless of course, grade in school and letter grade in the class, will be required to take the final exam.


All students are to be in their classrooms when the period begins at 8:15 am. Any student who arrives after 8:15 am but before 8:30 am will be marked tardy. Five (5) accumulated tardies are to be treated as an absence. A student who continues to show up tardy thereafter may be dropped from class at the discretion of the Summer School administration.


Summer School courses cover a great deal of material in a short time; consequently, students must study both during and outside of the school day. If they are distributed for the course, books are to be taken home each day. No corridor lockers are to be used.


Students who are taking courses for credit will receive the same type of grades as given during the regular school year.


Students are not to leave the school building unless they are leaving the school grounds for the day. Students must notify the Summer School office before leaving the building.


Any student who drives to school must observe all driving regulations and all safety regulations.  Permission to drive a car to school may be revoked at any time in the interest of safety and attendance.


All disciplinary policies will apply as outlined in the District 128 Student Handbook. Copies will be available in the Summer School office if requested.


Students requiring accommodations due to an IEP or 504 Plan should contact their case manager prior to enrolling in Summer School.
