2021 Summer Enrichment Course Information

Continuing Students (10th, 11th & 12th grades): Summer Enrichment course requests will occur during the open course request period for each grade level through Blackbaud. All courses will be offered in an online format only.  Continuing students may not take a summer course in person / on campus.

Course Pricing: All ½ credit courses cost $350.00 for one course, and $300.00 for each additional course.  A 0 credit course costs a flat rate of $200.00. Summer Enrichment courses will be billed through Smart Tuition in the month of June.

Synchronous classes will require daily student attendance in a 30-60 minute meeting.  This meeting may occur anytime between 8:00 AM and 12:00 PM PST.  Once a teacher sets a time for a daily class meeting (which will be communicated in the weeks prior to the actual start of class), the class will continue to meet at that time for the duration of the module.  Teachers will not accommodate time change requests for the daily class meeting.  In addition, students will not be switched to other sections for a potentially more convenient meeting time.  Students should sign up for summer classes knowing full well that their daily class meeting may begin anytime between 8:00 AM and 12:00 PM PST.  See the Summer Enrichment attendance policy for more information on requirements for the daily class meeting. 

Asynchronous classes will not require a student to attend a daily class meeting. 

Attendance Policy

(for synchronous classes only)
Core Summer Enrichment Distance Learning courses will be run within two, three-week modules, whereby each module equates to a semester of study during the academic year.  In order to guarantee the 60 contact hours necessary to receive credit for these courses, attendance is required and will be recorded for every day of class.

  • How attendance will be recorded on every day of class:

    1.  PRIMARY: Daily Class Meeting
    2.  SECONDARY: Daily Attendance Assignment

    Priority for attendance is given to the Daily Class Meeting, however students must complete the primary and secondary attendance checks on a daily basis.  This is the quickest and easiest way for a student to ensure that the attendance requirement is being met for the course.  The Daily Class Meeting will occur at the same time each morning via an electronic video-conferencing interface.  The Daily Attendance Assignment is a secondary attendance check which will be recorded in the gradebook for the class.  In order to allow flexibility for travel or other extenuating circumstances, students will be permitted to miss up to three (3) Daily Class Meetings for each three-week module, without risking loss-of-credit for the class.*

    *Important: 
    1. Students who miss a Daily Class Meeting on a given day MUST complete the secondary attendance check (the Daily Attendance Assignment) for that same day on that day, or they will be automatically removed from the class roster for failing to meet the required daily instructional hours for the class.
    2. Students who miss a fourth (4th) Daily Class Meeting within a three-week module will be automatically removed from the class roster for failing to meet the required instructional hours for the class, even if they make an attempt to complete the Daily Attendance Assignment for that same day.
    3. Students who attend a Daily Class Meeting but fail to submit a Daily Attendance Assignment will experience loss-of-credit in the gradebook for that assignment, the cumulative impact of which may result in course failure.

Daily Class Meeting Policy

List of 4 items.

  • Checking In / Out for the Daily Class Meeting:

    Upon entering a Daily Class Meeting, students will record their attendance by typing “here” or “present” into the chat forum for the virtual meeting. Their attendance will then be time-stamped as the official record of when they checked in for class on that day.  At the conclusion of a class meeting (which will be signaled by the course instructor) students will be given an opportunity to ask clarifying questions about assignments, or about any other course-related content.  At the end of this time, students will return to the chat forum to sign out of the class meeting by typing, “no questions,” “all good,” or “thank you.”  This check out will be time-stamped as the official record of when a student left class on that day.
  • Daily Class Meeting Tardiness:

    Students who are more than five minutes late to a Daily Class Meeting will be counted as absent for the day, even if an attempt is made to sign into the meeting after the five-minute mark.  Students who are one-to-four minutes late to a class meeting will be considered tardy.  The accumulation of three tardies will result in one absence from a daily class meeting.  
  • Leaving the Daily Class Meeting Early:

    Students who leave the Daily Class Meeting early, or who fail to submit their proper sign-out to the chat forum, will be considered absent for the day.
  • In Class Procedures:

    The Daily Class Meeting is a professional learning environment.  As such, students will adhere to the following standards when showing up to class on a daily basis:
    1. Device cameras will be on and students’ faces will be fully visible for the duration of the meeting.
    2. Microphones will be turned off (as a default) though will be toggled on when called on to ask or answer questions.
    3. Students will be presentably dressed and in appropriate locations for the class meeting, ideally seated at a desk or table, prepared to actively and attentively participate
      • Inappropriate Dress: pajamas, swimwear, revealing clothing of any kind, etc.
      • Inappropriate Settings: laying in bed or on a couch, in a pool, participating in other activities, etc.
    4. Students will be prepared to actively participate in the Daily Class Meeting.  Students should not expect to simply show up and remain passive or silent in the class.  When called on by instructors, students will respond to questions or share insights within live discussions. 
Failure to adhere to these Daily Class Meeting policies, or others as indicated by the course instructor, may result in a student being recorded as “absent” for the day, even if logged in for the duration of the meeting itself.
