GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

 

SCOPE

 
This report is designed to collect information about summer school.  Each school district shall receive a summer school student unit for each student enrolled in and attending summer school (receiving credit for the course offered) for at least 12 days, whether or not the student is in membership of the school district.

 

The initial number of units for each student equals the sum of the ratios, each rounded down to the nearest whole number.  The ratios are calculated as follows:

 

1.  The number of days for which the student attended summer school classes for at least 3 hours but fewer than 6 hours per day, divided by 12; plus

 

2.  2 times the number of days the student attended summer school classes for 6 or more hours per day divided by 12.

 

If summer school students do not attend summer school for at least 12 days, for at least 3 hours per day, or if the school district collects fees for summer school from students who qualify for free or reduced price lunches, check the statement at the bottom of the form that says "the district does not have summer school or does not meet the Summer School Student Unit requirements", then click on the SUBMIT button to submit zeros. 

After this collection has been submitted, the "Approver" level user of the CDC for your district will need to log in and click on the "APPROVE" button to complete the submission.

Each school district receives an additional summer school student unit for each summer school student unit attributed to remedial math or reading programs.

Each school district receives an additional summer school student unit for each summer school student who in the school year immediately preceding summer school either:

a) Qualified for free lunches or free milk and attended a school that uses information collected from parents and guardians to determine such qualifications or
b) Attended (or is registered to attend for early childhood) a school that provides free meals to all students pursuant to the community eligibility provision.

What about “fun” programs?

 

          No camps should be included unless the student gets credit toward graduation.

Can elementary students be included in the summer school student unit?
