Summer School Parents Information
  • Summer school classes will run from Monday, June 2, through Friday, July 11, 2014. Friday, July 4, is a holiday.


  • Since the pace of instruction in summer is much faster than that of the regular year, absences are to be avoided. Students will be automatically dropped on their fourth absence, regardless of the reason. Students enrolled in a three-week, five-credit course will be dropped on the third absence.


  • Advancement/Core: These classes are all academic in nature. Priority for enrollment is given to students who have failed an academic class, those behind in credit, or those needing extra help to enter college. For this reason, space in a class is competitive. Each school will establish its own system for determining the priority for enrollment. Places for pre-registered students will be held only until 8:00 a.m. on June 2, 2014.


  • Students who are unsure as to whether or not they can attend for a full summer session should not register for this program, since they could deprive another student of a spot in class if they enroll and then drop.

  • It is possible, in a four-hour class only, to attend for three weeks and receive five units of credit. The three weeks could be for the first semester (June 2nd to June 20th) or for the second semester (June 23rd to July 11th). Space availability is a factor in both cases.


  • Students may not attend for half of the session in a two-hour class and receive credit.


  • Since the summer school programs are voluntary in nature, students should understand that proper behavior, observance of the regular discipline code and regular attendance is expected. Students who have difficulty in adhering to the rules and regulations will be dropped from classes.


  • In the Kern High School District, a student may use a grade in a summer school class to improve the spring semester grade point average if doing so will make him/her eligible for athletics or activities during fall semester. Summer school grades, for eligibility purposes only, are hand figured into the preceding semester if the student requests it. Grades for all other students are figured into the succeeding semester. Students are urged to discuss this policy with their school site Athletic Director.


  • Ten units is the normal maximum credit a student may earn during the summer.
