The end of the school year is approaching and it is time to begin thinking about the opportunities that Baltimore City Public Schools offers for credit recovery during summer. High school students have the opportunity to recover credits that they have lost during the school year as well as accelerate their learning by taking a course for original credit.
This year, summer school begins on Tuesday, July 5 and ends on Friday, August 5, 2011. Students are able to take courses at one of the three following sites: Heritage High, Forest Park High and Dunbar High School. Students who are participating in special CTE courses may attend Carver Technical High School in order to receive CTE credit for specific courses. Students may enroll in one or two sessions. Session 1 is from 8:00a.m. -11:00a.m. Session 2 is from 11:30a.m.-2:30p.m.
Students are able to register for a variety of courses. Students may participate in the Bridge Plan for Academic Validation and/or credit recovery. Guidance counselors at your student’s school will help him/her to register for the appropriate courses. The registration information guide will provide you with the courses available, the costs associated with the program, as well as other procedures and requirements.
It is important to note that if your student has failed English I and/or II, he or she should recover the English credit during summer school because students are not allowed to be dually enrolled in English I and II courses during the school year.High school credit recovery and original credit are excellent means to ensure that your student stays on track for graduation. Please see your student’s guidance counselor to ensure that your student registers for Summer Learning 2011.Attached you will find more information on the topic.
