The credit recovery summer program is designed for high school students, grades 9-12, who are credit deficient, or not on track to graduate. The 2017 summer program will take place June 1-27, 2017, at Vista Ridge High School (6888 Black Forest Drive in Colorado Springs
). All coursework is due no later than 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 27, 2017. Extensions past June 27 are not be granted, and refunds are not provided.
Deadline for initial enrollment is Thursday, June 1.
Late registration requests will not be processed. Students may register for up to three courses requiring credit recovery, or the courses determined by their school counselor. They can only complete one course at a time, so they only get billed for one course at a time. If time permits before the end of summer school, students will be enrolled and billed for other requested courses. To process a registration, all fields on the registration form must be filled out, and the “submit” button must be clicked.
The credit recovery summer program costs $100 per semester course.
A fee is posted to the student's account in Infinite Campus after an enrollment is processed. Parents only need to sign into their parent portal account and follow the prompts. Parent portal information is available here
. Once a parent signs into their parent portal, the 2016-2017 summer school tuition fee is posted in the payment section. Out-of-district families, or those preferring not to pay online, must pay during orientation. The accepted forms of in-person payment include cash, money order or cashier’s check. Money orders and checks must be for $100 and addressed to "D49 Summer School 2017." We cannot accept debit or credit cards in person.
During the summer, District 49 accepts payment for one credit recovery course at a time. When a student successfully completes a course, and it is determined there are enough days remaining in summer school to complete another course, the student can be enrolled in an additional course. At that point, the student will be charged an additional $100 for the second course. Please remember that students will be dropped from a course if a payment isn't made in time. Students will not be enrolled into additional courses after Monday, June 19.
Fees are waived for seniors who did not graduate with their class in May 2017.
Students who qualify for free or reduced lunch may have their fee waived by showing a copy of the approval letter.
Beginning June 1, letters can given to the summer school coordinator at the Vista Ridge High School. The letter only needs to be seen by the summer school administration, as proof of qualification. Summer school personnel will not keep a copy. For more information about the district-provided letter, contact nutrition services
at 719.495.1106. Parents should not contact summer school personnel or a student's school of attendance for this information. It may only be obtained by contacting nutrition services, due to requirements under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.
