Math Credit Recovery Classes
Classes will meet from Tuesday, June 1st through Thursday, June 17, 2021. (There will be no classes on Friday, June 11th). Classes will run from 8:00-12:00 each day. A minimum of 10 students for each class is necessary for the class to be offered. There is a maximum of 20 seats available for each class.
Credit Recovery Through Edgenuity
There will be two sessions of credit recovery offered through Project Success each lasting three weeks. Students can sign up for one or both. The first session will be every weekday from Tuesday, June 1st through Friday, June 18, 2021. The second session will meet every weekday from Monday, June 21st through Friday, July 9th. Edgenuity classes will run from 8:00-12:00 each morning and 1:00-4:00 each afternoon. Any student choosing to stay for both sessions will have lunch provided by Project Success. Edgenuity is unique in that a student can make up multiple credits over the course of a session and once a student completes the credit(s), they are no longer required to attend credit recovery.
A minimum of 5 students are necessary for online credit recovery to be offered. A maximum of 20 seats is available for the online credit recovery class.
There is no fee for summer school.
*Course offerings may be adjusted due to staffing.
Attendance Policy - There is a total of 48 hours of seat time that are required with some outside work also in order to recover a semester of Math. For the online Edgenuity classes, all work must be done on campus during class time.
A list of the requirements is attached so that all students and their parents understand the obligations of each student. Both students and parent/Guardian(s) should sign the attached summer school requirements sheet and return it to the HS Office.
Students will be held to high attendance and behavior standards. Please read the requirements carefully, to ensure all parties understand the expectations.
SUMMER SCHOOL CREDIT RECOVERY REQUIREMENTS
All regular Hoopeston Area High School Student Handbook rules are in effect.
Regardless of the reason: illness, emergencies, misbehavior, etc., a student may be absent no more than five (5) hours during the entire summer session, for each semester class in order to receive credit.
When a student is tardy to class five minutes or less; he/she will have to make up that time at the end of the day. If the time is not made up, the student will lose credit for an entire hour.
When a student is tardy to school for more than five minutes; he/she will lose credit for an entire hour.
When a discipline matter becomes severe enough to warrant removal of the student from the room, the student may be sent home and this will be counted as an unexcused absence. The students will lose credit for the entire hour(s).
Students should stay in the designated classroom and areas (hallways, restroom, break areas, etc.) all times.
All students should enter and exit the building through the MS doors to the left of the MS office entrance. Math classes will meet in Mr. Brewer’s Room, and Online Credit Recovery will meet in Mrs. Ankenbrand’s Room. Do not enter the building in the morning until the doors have been opened by a summer school teacher or the principal.
Students who drive should park in the parking lot north of the high school main doors.
Breaks will be given at only designated times. Students must stay in the designated area. Students may not go outside during any of the breaks unless given permission by the teacher.
As long as it does not become a problem, food and drink may be allowed with teacher discretion. Students who stay for both morning and afternoon times for Project Success will be provided a sack lunch to eat in between sessions.
