Summer School Online Options for Summer 2020


    Online Registration Information Available for Grade Replacement/Credit Retrieval and Credit/Acceleration


    OPTION ONE: Grade Replacement/Credit Retrieval

    Students who earned a D or an F in a class are eligible to take a Summer School course that is equivalent to the course in which they received a D or an F. The grade they receive in Summer School will replace their initial grade, regardless of whether the Summer School grade is higher or lower. The grade earned initially by the student will be reflected on their transcript but will not be calculated into their GPA.
    Students may take a Summer School class to retrieve .50 of a credit, provided that they receive a Summer School grade that is higher than an F.
