Credit Recovery/Initial Credit for Non-EOC Courses

Students who need to recover credit or to have initial credit for a course will work in Edgenuity.  This model is split between a virtual model and an on campus model.  Teachers in English, Math, Science, Social Studies, Electives, and Spanish will be available for assistance in person and by email/Zoom call from 8:00am-12:00pm, Monday-Thursday, June 1st - July 28th.  All courses will lock when a test is to be taken.  Students will have to come to campus during the above hours to take the test in front of a teacher.  Computer labs A406, A419, A420, and A431 will be available for test taking and/or for students to have a place to work.   

Students will be able to access all Edgenuity classes through Clever on their chromebooks.  

Credit Options

Recovery of Credit

  • Recovery of Credit Summer School is only available to students entering 9th-12th grades in 2022-2023.
  • Students will have the option of regaining credit in any course in which they have received previous instruction but did not receive credit.  

Acceleration of Credit

  • Acceleration of Credit Summer School is only available to students entering 10th-12th grades in 2022-2023.
  • Students will have an opportunity to accelerate in select “non-EOC” courses to meet graduation requirements. Students will only be able to accelerate for a non-EOC course in which they have the opportunity to take in the immediately following school year. 

Cost

Each course in Summer School is one semester in length.  Each semester course costs $50 (free and reduced lunch students pay $25 each).  A course ending in “A” is the Fall Semester.  A course ending in “B” is the Spring Semester.  A student needing “Algebra 1A” would pay $50.  A student needing “Algebra 1A & Algebra 1B” would pay $100.  Courses will not be made available until payment has been made.  

Once the student, parent, and counselor have agreed to participate in AND pay for summer school, the appropriate fees will be added to the student’s “Fee Management” tab in Skyward.  Courses will not be loaded, made available in Edgenuity, nor added to the student’s transcript until they have been paid for in full in Skyward. 

Registration

Registration for summer school will begin May 4th, 2022. Counselors will begin contacting students/parents to discuss Summer School needs and, upon payment, the student will be enrolled into the course(s) needed.

Rules

Due to the compact nature of a summer semester, summer school courses are very time and labor intensive.

Students are expected to adhere to the behavior and dress code guidelines as specified in the BISD High School Student Code of Conduct.  The summer school principal will have the final say as to the appropriateness of any student’s dress. Students not in compliance with the dress code may be sent home.   Students who are disruptive may be removed from Summer School without a refund.

Students are to remain in authorized areas only. Authorized areas are limited to designated entrances to the building, the front office, the wing/hallway in which the student attends class, and the restrooms immediately adjacent to that wing. Being outside these areas at any time may result in charges of criminal trespass and dismissal from summer school.

Food and drink must be stored in the backpack or other appropriate container while in the classroom. Students may only consume food and drink in designated break areas. Open containers of food or drink are not allowed in the lab.  Students attending summer school may park in the front parking lot and enter through the front entrance of the building.
