HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OFFERINGS:

The High School Summer program (Grades 9-12), runs for six weeks from Wed. May 30 to Fri. July 6.

Courses with a gold star (Gold-Star) have prerequisites that require a TRANSCRIPT attached for validation if you are a current Middle School Student.
For current High School Students, a TRANSCRIPT or signature on the course request form are required. Please refer to the Course description for more information.

6-WEEK CLASSES

The following courses are being offered this summer, but may be cancelled or changed based on enrollment and teacher availability.

These courses are the equivalent of a full year high school course and will earn 10 credits by passing the class (es). They will run for six weeks
(May 30 – July 6). The Health/Geography, PE/Geography, and the PE/Health combos will earn 5 credits for each course – for a total of 10 credits. Tuition for six week classes is $630, with a $50 materials fee added for Art: Drawing & Painting, or 3D Design.

*Some students may only need to repeat one semester of Algebra 1B, Geometry, Spanish 1, or Spanish 2. Students needing to repeat the fall semester of these courses will attend from Wednesday, May 30 to Friday, June 15. Students needing to repeat the spring semester of these courses must still attend the first day of school on Wednesday, May 30 to secure their place in the class, check out a textbook, and pick up a syllabus. They will then return and attend from Monday, June 18 to Friday, July 6. Students taking these courses for just the First 3-weeks, or the Second 3-weeks will earn 5 credits. Students who attend these classes for the entire 6 weeks (both periods 1 and 2) will be eligible to earn 10 credits.

**Physical Education is a 6-week one period class that students will attend from Wednesday, May 30 to Friday, July 6. The period (i.e. 1 or 2) will be determined by which combo it is paired with (i.e. Health or Geography). Students taking PE as a stand-alone class will be placed in period 1 or 2 based on scheduling availability.

PERIODS 1 & 2 8:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. (With a 10-minute break)

ATTENDANCE & ABSENCES:

Attendance & punctuality in Summer School are critical due to the accelerated pace of the curriculum. Each day of Summer School is the virtual equivalent of 2-weeks in the regular school year. As a result:

  • No more than 1.5 days of any 3-week class may be missed.
  • No more than 3 days of any 6-week class may be missed.
  • Two tardies = one day of absence.
  • ALL students must attend the FIRST AND LAST DAY of their assigned Summer School class. Any student not in attendance on the first day will be dropped in favor of a student on the waiting list. Any student not in attendance on the last day will not pass the class or receive credit.
  • If a student will be absent at any level or for any course, the parent is required to call the school (818-735-3332) on the morning of the absence between 7:45 – 8:30 am to report it. All absences must be accounted for and verified.

CLASS LISTS:

Class lists for all levels and courses for students who have pre-registered will be posted at the top of this page by Friday afternoon, May 25th. Students will be identified by their OPUSD student identification number on the list.

We may move students between classes as necessary to balance classes at any time.

All students MUST be in class on the first day of summer school to secure their seat in the class. Failure to attend on the first day will result in the student being dropped. If there is a valid excuse for an absence, parents must call the morning of the first day of summer school to the school office so that the space is held for that student.

COURSE CANCELLATIONS:

We may be forced to cancel a class for a variety of reasons. We will contact all registrants involved if we cancel a course. FULL refunds will be issued if we cannot accommodate these students in another class.

The State of California no longer provides funding to any school district for Summer School classes. Oak Park Education Foundation, a private foundation, has agreed to help keep the tradition of a high quality summer school program in Oak Park and to continue as administrators of the program. The classes offered by the Oak Park Education Foundation summer program adhere to the same curriculum and receive the same credit as those offered by the Oak Park Unified School District during the regular school year.
The Foundation must charge students who attend Summer School to cover teacher and staff salaries, plus the additional mandatory employer costs, rental of the facilities, insurance requirements, utility charges, and materials fees.
