Online Summer Remediation

Students who earned D or F grades in either semester of the 2018-2019 school year may be required to remediate those grades in order to move to the next course in the sequence, receive graduation units, and/or remain eligible for college admissions. Students needing remediation will receive an e-mail and official letter shortly after the last day of school indicating which class(es) need to be remediated and whether remediation is required or recommended. Upon receipt of this information, students and parents must register for one of the summer remediation options provided.

Students have the option to work with academic content tutors and receive personalized attention and course management from the Summer Academics Coordinator and staff. We strongly recommend finishing one remediation course before beginning a second. However, students will have the option to be registered in two courses at the same time.
