Hall County School District’s high school summer program is provided primarily through online instruction along with summer school teachers to facilitate student learning. Designed to help students graduate on time from high school, these online courses are aligned to the state curriculum and are self paced. The high school summer school program provides two options for taking courses needed for high school graduation: credit recovery and initial credit. “Credit recovery” is for students who have failed one or more courses needed for high school graduation. Maximum grade for a “recovered” credit course is 70%. “Initial credit” is for students who enroll in a course for the first time and earn a final grade of 70% or higher. Students seeking initial credit MUST enroll and take classes only at the LCA campus. Students enrolling in computer-based credit recovery classes earn Level 1 credit only.
(See Hall County High School Student Planning Guide for more information about Level 1 courses.)
All summer school courses are taught through computer-based, online instruction. Students who have an internet connection may work from home, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Students may also work on courses on campus during the days & hours shown below. Students must take all tests in the classroom at the school campus. No tests will be available to students at home.
*Note: To complete these courses during the summer, a student MUST be logged on and “active” at least five hours per day. Students who spend less than five hours per day risk not finishing a course by the end of the session. No refunds are provided for students who do not complete a class by the end of the summer session. Students who do not complete these courses will have an opportunity to finish before or after school when the new school year begins.
Behavior: Students attending the summer program shall follow all rules in the Hall County Schools Code of Conduct printed in the high school handbook. (A copy of the handbook is available in the school office as well as online at www.hallco.org.) Students who choose to work on courses at the school campus are expected to use the computer labs for instructional purposes only; non-instructional use is prohibited. Any misuse of computers or other technology will result in immediate removal from the summer program. Students must display respectful behavior toward the teacher, other students, and the school facility itself. If any violations of the Code of Conduct occur, a student is subject to immediate removal from the summer school program. No refunds will be provided.
