Details

Classes are held in Auburn and are scheduled no earlier than July 1 of any year. The exact schedule is set each day based on the NYS Regents testing dates determined by the State Education Department. Classes are held Monday – Thursday, and each class is 118 minutes in length. Courses offered are determined by student needs and district requests. At the middle level, content area courses (English, math, science, and social studies) are offered, and at the high school level, a full schedule of credit-bearing courses is available.
 

Registration

Students are registered for summer school by the guidance counselor at their school. Parents cannot register students for summer school classes. Registrations occur beginning the first full week of June and end the last week of June. During the last ten days of summer school, those courses that offer an opportunity to make up a Regents exam hold a one-hour a day review class. Students who want to attend the review class must also have their guidance counselor register them for those sessions by the end of June. Exact dates vary each year based on the summer school calendar.

Summer school also offers Regents exam testing in August. Students must be pre-registered for an exam by their guidance counselor no later that the end of the second week of July. There are no walk-in opportunities available for Regents exams.

Online Summer School Credit Recovery

If you are at risk at not staying on track towards graduation, credit recovery may assist you in getting back on track. Something happened... and for whatever reason it affected your grade. Whether you did not earn a passing grade and/or didn’t receive credit, this is an opportunity for you to demonstrate mastery at your own pace. There’s good news if you are willing to work hard within an online learning environment this summer. Within a structured school environment, you will be provided support and guidance by a certified teacher. A computer lab will be your classroom where you will be working alongside students who are also pursuing individually paced learning. Attendance and participation is critical to your success. A minimum of ten hours of participation on site, and successful completion of course assessments are required to earn credit. The primary site location will be Auburn High School for grades 11-12. A secondary site will be Weedsport High School for Weedsport and Port Byron participants in grades 9-12. Transportation will be determined by the component school district of your residence.
