OVERVIEW

The Dysart Unified School District is expanding Summer School options this year to keep students on track, and to provide opportunities for them to remediate their grades or advance the accumulation of their high school credits. Courses are available for K-12th graders, and will be offered in a variety of ways, including online through Dysart’s iSchool program, or in person on various campuses.

Summer School assists those students who need credits to graduate on time, seek to manage their high school schedule, remediate grades, or wish to graduate as soon as possible. Students from all four high schools are eligible to attend, as well as students from other districts and charter schools.

For incoming freshmen, Summer School can assist those students who desire to work ahead with classes allowing your high school schedule to open up for those desirable electives. See options information below.

Summer School is offered online through iSchool and in person at various campuses. All classes are offered contingent upon sufficient enrollment and teacher availability.

Summer School teachers are experts in their subject matter and skilled in working with high school students. Our staff is selected from our talented Dysart Unified School District teachers.

Students are held to the same rigorous academic standards at Summer School as they are during the regular school year. Courses meet all the standards to fulfill the graduation requirements.
