With end-of-course STAAR exam results and grades pouring in, this is the time many students may find out that they will need to take summer school courses to recover uncredited course work or to pass one of the mandatory state assessments required for graduation.
Free pre-K-12 summer programs will be offered at every Title I campus, but class and meal schedules will vary, so it’s important to get in touch with your child’s school to determine its dates and times. Transportation is generally not provided.
An online application for summer school is available, but it must be delivered to the school’s main office.
Summer school carries the same requirements as regular school, so regular attendance is mandatory. Classes are not held on the July 4 holiday.
For more on details, visit the HISD summer school webpages.
