SUMMER SCHOOL

 

 

The Plaquemines Parish School Board may offer a summer school program for students at the elementary and secondary levels, and shall offer school remediation and retest opportunities as outlined in Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE) Bulletin 1566, Pupil Progression Policies and Procedures.

 

Elementary summer schools may offer programs to enable students not meeting the promotion criteria during the regular school year to attend a summer school to remove deficiencies and be considered for promotion to the next grade or to provide additional learning opportunities.  Students attending summer school for promotional purposes shall have written consent by the principal of the last school they attended.

 

Students not passing the Louisiana Educational Assessment Program (LEAP) exam administered in the spring of each year in grades 4 and 8, are highly recommended to attend a summer school remediation program for remediation in the specific area needed and may be retested at the conclusion of the course.  Summer remediation shall consist of a minimum of fifty (50) hours of instruction per subject.

 

Secondary schools may offer summer school to enable students to schedule courses to enrich their experiences, to take new subjects, and to enable students who have failed in subjects to remove deficiencies.  The administration of the summer school shall have the written permission from the principal of the students’ home school in order for high school credit to be awarded.

 

All students with disabilities should receive services along with regular education students in summer programs, with special supports provided as needed.

 

Students attending summer school session may be charged a fee.  Fees shall be set by the School Board upon recommendation of the Superintendent and his/her administrative staff.
