Summer School Options Continue for Dysart Schools
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — 2/14/2022
Dysart Unified School District offers Summer School options to keep students on track, and to provide opportunities for them to remediate their grades or advance the accumulation of high school credits. Courses are available for students from Kindergarten through 12th grade, and will be offered two ways, including online through Dysart’s iSchool program, or in person on various campuses.
Online iSchool Summer School (Grades: Current 8-12 students):
iSchool Summer School registration will begin Monday, February 14, 2022 for current and incoming high school students. Courses are online and students may choose to take up to two classes, depending on when they begin their coursework. The deadline to register is Thursday, May 26, 2022. The cost will be $100 per 0.5 credit, or $50 for those on free and reduced lunch or Dysart employees.
Dysart iSchool Summer School will run April 11 through June 23, 2022. Students who choose to begin on April 11 could possibly complete 1.0 credit during Summer School if they sign up for two courses. Students who begin courses at the end of the 2021-22 school year will only be able to complete one course for .5 credit.
All offered courses meet graduation requirements and are taught by certified teachers. While coursework is online, students will have access to in-person instructors for additional support, if needed. Students are required to take an in person final exam before noon on June 23 to complete the course. For the sake of academic integrity, students must pass the final exam with a 60% to earn the credit, regardless of their grade going into the final.
Dysart iSchool Summer School is open to students from the four Dysart high schools, as well as students from other districts and charter schools. Current Dysart students that are interested can register with their school counselors, and current eighth graders may contact the iSchool office.
