This Senior High School Summer School Program is for students who need to make up credit in a required subject area.  Summer school this year is following a blended learning model.  Students will attend class at Columbine two days per week for each subject they enroll in and the rest of their learning will be AT HOME through an on-line computer based program, Edgenuity.  All students will need to have regular internet access and a good work ethic in order to successfully pass summer school. The senior high school program is open to district students who are currently in Grades 9 through 12. 

Students can register for up to three courses for the summer sessions.  Students that register for one or two classes will be put in the JUNE session. ONLY students that register for a third course will ALSO be placed in the JULY session. Taking two or three courses is very challenging and students will need to work very hard to get this done.  There are no course fees for summer school this year for Jeffco Students.  

Students will attend an online orientation on June 1 and start classes in person and on-line June 2nd and 3rd.  Students will go to school in person at Columbine at least two days per week through June 24th. All students must complete course work by June 25th in order to attend the July session for the opportunity to recover a third course credit.  The July session for students enrolled in a third course will be July 12th – 30th.

Enrollment Restrictions
It is also possible that courses may become full and students will be placed in classes according to when they register.  Because summer school is self-supporting, a class may not be offered if enrollment numbers are too low or if we run out of teachers.  You will be contacted if this impacts you/your student.  


Attendance Policy
Due to the short length of the summer session, students who are absent from orientation and/or class for more than ONE day will be dropped from the program without credit (three tardy marks will count as one absence.)  Students will be excused for quarantines or illness (covid symptoms) but parents must call to excuse the student’s absence.   


Conduct Code
All students must adhere to the Jefferson County Public Schools Conduct Code and Related Policies.  Any student violating Board of Education Policy JICH, JICH-R (Drug and Alcohol Use) or Policy JICI (Weapons in School) will be immediately withdrawn from summer school.  Neither credit nor refund will be granted.  Violation will be reported to the student’s home school. 

Mask mandate will be enforced.  All attendees must wear face masks at all times.


NO BUSS SERVICE IS PROVIDED.  TRANSPORTATION IS THE RESPONSIBILITY 
OF THE INDIVIDUAL STUDENT


Students should bring final report card and/or transcript to registration at Columbine or work with their homeschool counselor to select classes.  

Summer school grades will not replace grades currently on transcripts.  Summer school grades are calculated in students’ GPAs and it is possible to FAIL summer school classes.  

Summer school grades will go on transcripts after August 1.

SUMMER SCHOOL OFFERINGS
