Posted On: Thursday, January 17, 2019

CCSD Summer School 2019 Course Recovery Sessions

 

The Cherokee County School District will offer a variety of summer school learning opportunities from June 5-25 for high school students including rising ninth-graders.

In addition to offering a wide selection of courses for students who need to retake classes not passed during the regular school year, Personal Fitness and Health courses will be offered for initial high school credit.  

CCSD also is offering an opportunity for specifically identified rising ninth-grade students to participate in a Summer Bridge program to preview core ninth-grade content, with an emphasis on high school transition skills and processes.  

More detailed registration information will be released in April.

Face-to-Face Credit Recovery

Face-to-Face classes for credit recovery will be offered at Etowah High School’s Etowah East campus, where courses will be teacher taught.  These classes are only for credit recovery.  Courses are offered based upon sufficient demand (see listing on registration materials).  Classes are from 8 a.m. to Noon or 12:30 to 4:30 p.m.  Attendance at all classes is mandatory.  Early Registration will be held in May, and students may register in the counselors’ office at their home high school. Cost is $200 per class/half credit. Cash, credit card or money order payment required at registration.

Virtual Credit Recovery

Virtual courses for credit recovery will be offered at each high school and facilitated by a certified teacher.  These classes are only for credit recovery.  Courses are offered based upon sufficient demand (see listing on registration materials).  Classes are from 8 a.m. to Noon or 12:30 to 4:30 p.m.  Students must attend until online coursework is complete.  Early Registration will be held in May at each high school through the counselors’ office.  Cost is $200 per class/half unit of credit.  Cash, credit card or money order payment required at registration.

Initial Credit for Personal Fitness and Health

Rising 9th-graders may elect to take a half unit of Personal Fitness and/or Health for high school credit.  Classes are for four hours daily (Personal Fitness 8 a.m. to noon and Health 12:30 to 4:30 p.m.), and will be offered at Cherokee High School (for Cherokee, Creekview and Sequoyah students) and Etowah High School’s Etowah East campus (for Etowah, River Ridge and Woodstock students).  No transportation is provided.  Attendance at all classes is mandatory.  Registration will be held in May at each middle school’s main office.  High school students still needing to take these courses are also eligible to register through their school’s Counselors’ office.  Cost is $200 per course/half unit of credit.  Cash, credit card or money order payment required at registration.

Summer Bridge

High schools will be working with middle schools to invite select, at-risk rising Grade 9 students to attend Summer Bridge, which is from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at each high school.  There is no cost for the program.  Although no course credit is awarded for participation, the program allows students to preview academic content, focus on study skills, learn to navigate the high school campus and build relationships with fellow students and high school staff.  The program resembles a camp atmosphere whose goal is to prepare students for a smooth and successful transition to high school.  No transportation is provided.
