Summer School Information

Summer School Parent and Student Information

  • Space is limited. Go to http://bit.ly/NHSSummerSchool to complete the online registration form. Accepted students will be notified prior to the start of summer school.

    Northwood High School will offer summer school in select courses for current students in grades 9-12. Summer school is for students needing to repeat a course that they previously failed; it is not for students wanting to take a course for the first time. Students will work at their own pace to complete the course using Apex Learning. Teachers will be present to monitor and assist students. Students should see their counselor for advisement on which course they should take to ensure they are taking the right course needed for promotion and graduation. There will be no fee for summer school. Transportation will not be provided.

    Dates: June 12-14, 17-20, and 24-27

    Time: 8:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

     Attendance:

    • All students enrolled in summer school must be present at school for the initial three days of summer school (June 12-14).
    • Summer school will use a blended learning approach where students maintaining an 80% average and making adequate progress may have the option to come to Northwood or work from home for the last two weeks summer school (June 17-20 and 24-27).
    • If the student’s grade in the course falls below 80% and/or he/she is not making adequate progress, the off-campus release is suspended and the student must report to summer school until further notice.
    • Summer school teachers will be available at Northwood during the summer school hours to monitor and assist student in person or via phone or e-mail.
    • Students choosing to come to Northwood to work should plan to be present from 8:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Students arriving late or leaving early must sign in and out in the Main Office.

    Students should bring the following materials with them to class each day.

    • Notebook with blank paper
    • Pens and pencils
    • Calculator (for all math classes)

     Conduct

    Students are expected to adhere to all rules and policies outlined in the Northwood Student Handbook and the Chatham County Schools Code of Student Conduct. Failure to meet these expectations may result in removal from summer school.

     Grades

    Credit Recovery is for students who received a grade of 50-59 in a course and put forth effort to pass the course without success. Students will earn a grade of Pass or Fail for the course and the grade will not be factored into the student’s GPA. The original record of the course being completed and failed will remain on the student’s transcript. Click here for more information on Repeating Courses for Credit vs. Credit Recovery. It may be necessary for students to complete work from home. Students must complete all course requirements by the last day of the summer school session. A student who does not complete the course by the last day of the summer school session will receive a Fail for that summer school course.
