1 2013 Summer School Report Summer school registration for 2013 began at the end of January and ran through the first day of classes, June 10 th. We used the online registration interface that fed the data directly into Infinite Campus and allowed parents to pay via credit card, approval requests for courses when needed, and drop/add courses after an initial registration. Online registration continues to be the consistent trend. General Information The first summer school session ran 4 days the first two weeks, 5 days the third week, and 3 days the fourth week in order to accommodate a long weekend over the July 4 th holiday. During the second session, the summer school program consisted of a four-day per week program. The school day started at 7:45 A.M. and ended at 12:50 P.M. Students attended school for five hours and five minutes. As communicated in the past, feedback from parents, students, and teachers continues to be extremely positive. Enrollment There were 1298 total students enrolled in either one or both semesters of our 2013 Academic Summer School. This represents a decrease 235 students from last year s 1533 students, below any enrollment since There were 1182 seats scheduled during first session and 659 registered for second session. As to be expected, with declining overall enrollment, fewer students attended summer school than in the past. Of the almost 1300 students enrolled in summer school, 639 were incoming freshman which accounts for about 68% of the incoming class. This is down from 72% a year ago. The most notable change in class enrollment occurred in the sophomore class that decreased to 35% of the class enrolled in summer school versus 46% last summer. Courses and Trends In all 60 courses were offered. Four summer travel enrichment classes were offered as part of the summer school program for (The students had the opportunity to travel to Spain, major European cities, Costa Rica, and Finland/Iceland during the summer; students received one credit for this

2 experience.) ACT prep was added to our course offerings this summer, and about 30 students took advantage of this one-week opportunity. In total, 62 sections ran first semester and 32 ran second semester, compared with 70 and 42, respectively in Twenty-five courses were cancelled due to low enrollment. Photo 1, which typically runs, was not offered this summer due to summer building renovation that made the photo lab unavailable for us. Courses cancelled due to low enrollment include the following: Careers in Business Careers in Law Careers in Visual Arts Reading Enrichment Reading for College Freshman English Sophomore English Junior English Prep for AP English Q1 Prep for English Q2 Prep for Acc Eng Q1 Prep for Advanced/AP Art Algebra Prep for Advanced Algebra Advanced Algebra Retake Geometry Geo Science Accelerated Prep for AP Social Studies Q2 Survival Skills for HS French Conversation & Comp Spanish Conversation & Comp Intensive French Language Bridge to Spanish 2-3 Acc Bridge to Spanish 3-4 Acc ELL Bridge to English Although many opportunities are offered to support student success in accelerated or AP classes, enrollment is highest in classes that fulfill graduation requirements. At the same time, most classes offered for remediation did not run due to low enrollment. The largest enrollment continues to be in Health and World History. Health decreased this year to 8 sections (10 sections ran in 2012) with about 25

3 students in each section. World History had 14 sections down one section from last year. Students in Special Education continue to seek out summer school opportunities. The IJOB program enrollment this past summer was 10 students, approximately the same as in the recent past. We were also able to offer an instructional section of each U.S. History and World History providing some of our students in Special Education the opportunity to take core classes over the summer. The ILC was open each school day from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm for student and teacher use. The cafeteria remained open with full breakfast and lunch service before school and during students two breaks (one 15-minute break and one 25-minute break).
