Q: What Summer School Programs are available?
A: Please see summer options above.
Q: Does the grade my student receives in summer school replace the grade he/she received during the original semester?
A: No, both the original D/F grade and the remediated grade will remain on the transcript, which means both grades are used in GPA calculation. College/University policy dictates whether students are to report one or both grades.
Q: Can you take summer school to remediate a C grade or higher?
A: No. Summer School is designed to remediate D and F grades only. Colleges will not accept a repeat class in which the student already received a C or higher.
Q: Do the semesters of summer school correspond to the original semesters of the school year?
Q: How many classes can you take during the summer?
A: Students can take a max of 10 credits per summer. Each class semester is worth 5 credits. So students can take either 1 full year class or 2 semester classes.
Q: My student has to remediate more than one subject, can he/she take more than one course?
A: Yes. As long as they are only 1 semester each. (see question above)
Q: If my student wants to get ahead, are there any options for that?
A: Students can take an online course through an external institution to get ahead. External Course Credit: A maximum of 20 credits of coursework, over 4 years, will be accepted from external institutions. These courses may be used for acceleration, advancement, or elective credit, but cannot be used for original credit core courses required for high school diploma as outline in Education Code 51225.3. Before enrolling in the external course, students must obtain approval from their counselor. These courses are fee-based and generally cost $200-$400. PYLUSD is not responsible for any part of those fees.
