Summer school, with registration opening May 15, is undergoing a big change this year with all coursework now online, providing more access for students.

“Since the courses are online, students can work from anywhere at any time,” secondary summer school Principal Jennifer Redden said. “This gives families a lot of flexibility with summer plans.”

For students taking a course for credit recovery, there are tutorials at computer labs at both summer school campuses (Independence High School and Wakeland High School) but students will not have to repeat the entire course.

“Students taking classes for credit recovery will take a pre-assessment so that the course will target exactly in what areas they need intervention instead of taking the entire course,” Redden said. “In addition, credit recovery students will have a FISD teacher certified in the subject area to help them with content.”

Students taking a course for credit recovery must get a 70 percent of higher average on the course, and a 60 percent or higher on the final exam, while students attending for advancement must get a 70 percent of higher average on the course, and a 70 percent or higher on the final exam.

Those needing assistance with registration can enroll in person at Independence High School on Thursday, June 8. Current FISD students can register at Independence from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., while non-current FISD students can register from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

For more information, parents and students can access the Summer School Handbook and the FAQ page.
