Chawanakee USD | BP 6177 Instruction
Cautionary Notice: As added and amended by SBX3 4 (Ch. 12, Third Extraordinary Session, Statutes of 2009) and ABX4 2 (Ch. 2, Fourth Extraordinary Session, Statutes of 2009), Education Code 42605 grants districts flexibility in "Tier 3" categorical programs. The Chawanakee Union School District has accepted this flexibility and thus is deemed in compliance with the statutory or regulatory program and funding requirements for these programs for the 2008-09 through 2012-13 fiscal years. As a result, the district may temporarily suspend certain provisions of the following policy or regulation that reflect these requirements. For further information, please contact the Superintendent or designee.
Cautionary Notice 2010-13: AB 1610 (Ch. 724, Statutes of 2010) amended Education Code 37252.2 to relieve districts from the obligation, until July 1, 2013, to perform any activities that are deemed to be reimbursable state mandates under that section. As a result, certain provisions of the following policy or administrative regulation that reflect those requirements may be suspended.
The Governing Board recognizes that summer school provides valuable opportunities for students to improve their skills and make academic progress. When the need is demonstrated and funds are available, the Superintendent or designee, with Board approval, shall establish summer school day and/or evening classes for purposes of remediation, enrichment, and/or acceleration.
The district shall offer summer instructional programs for graduating high school seniors who need courses for graduation before the beginning of the next school year. (Education Code 41976.5)
(cf. 6146.1 - High School Graduation Requirements)
The district's summer school program may be used to provide supplemental instruction for students failing to meet academic requirements and/or students who desire enrichment in core academic subjects in accordance with law, Board policy, and administrative regulation. (Education Code 37252, 37252.2, 37252.8, 32753, 41505-41506; 5 CCR 11472)
(cf. 5123 - Promotion/Acceleration/Retention)
(cf. 6011 - Academic Standards)
(cf. 6143 - Courses of Study)
(cf. 6146.5 - Elementary/Middle School Graduation Requirements)
(cf. 6162.52 - High School Exit Examination)
(cf. 6176 - Weekend/Saturday Classes)
(cf. 6179 - Supplemental Instruction)
Priority to enroll in summer programs shall be given to district students who:
1. Are eligible for supplemental instruction on the basis of retention or recommendation for retention pursuant to Education Code 37252.2
2. Are eligible for supplemental instruction on the basis of insufficient progress toward passing the state high school exit examination pursuant to Education Code 37252
3. Need course credits in order to graduate from high school before the beginning of the next school year
The remaining openings shall be offered to district students on a first-come first-served basis.
Because summer courses cover extensive instructional content in a relatively short time period, students who have more than three excused absences or one unexcused absence may not receive credit for their summer session class(es) unless they make-up missed work in accordance with law, Board policy, and administrative regulation.
