Finishing the Summer School Semester and Earning Your Credit(s)

1.5 weeks left ? Yikes!

Holy moly where has the time gone?! It seems like just yesterday we started our summer school semester and here we are with one and a half weeks left until the July 21 end date. I have made it a point to stay in contact with all of my students and see how I can assist them, however, I wanted to use this blog as a place to post resources your teachers can provide you to help you complete your courses on time. I do have to preface that while they can provide the resources, it is 100% up to you to use what they provide. You have support from myself, your counselor, and your teacher or teachers, but it is up to you what you do with that support. 

Class Completion Resources

  • Pacing Plan: If you call or email your teachers and request a pacing plan they will provide you with a plan that will tell you how many activities to complete a day to complete your course.
  • Teacher Tool 1: Pacing VideoClick here to view this video that breaks down how teachers create pacing plan – save this to your bookmark tab and look at it whenever you have a question about pacing!
  • Teacher Tool 2: E-note Video– If you aren’t using e-notes, you should be. Click here to learn about this tool
  • Teacher Tool 3: Study Hall VideoClick here to learn how study hall can help you. If you have a prior commitment, communicate with your teacher and see what other options are available. They WANT to help you but they NEED you to tell them how they can do that. 

So Why all the Fuss?

In addition to wanting you to succeed in your courses and life in general, we want you to complete these courses because doing so will help you earn either .5 or 1 credit depending on how many courses you are taking (each course is worth .5 credit). Earning credits is important because it allows you to accumulate enough credit hours to move from one grade level to the next and eventually to graduate when all graduation requirements have been met.
