SECONDARY SUMMER SCHOOL INFORMATION
Secondary Summer School Options
American Leadership Academy, as an institution of learning and education, believes our first priority is to make sure all students are receiving an appropriate education and are on track for graduation. If a student receives an F in any class required for graduation, they will be required to take credit recovery. This summer, ALA is offering our students the opportunity to take summer courses in our Academic Lab to earn back any credit lost due to a failing grade in a “for credit” course. The Academic Lab will offer your student(s) the ability to learn in an optimal learning environment with dedicated, highly qualified individuals to assist them with their daily lessons and assignments.
Dates and Times:
Summer school will begin Monday, June 8th, and run through June 26th. This will be followed by a short break with classes resuming on July 8th and running through July 31st. The start time is 8:00, ending at 2:00, Monday-Thursday.
Summer school costs will be $45.00 per course. No discounts or refunds will be available with the exception of the students who qualify for the fee waiver option.
During the regular school year, a semester long course provides students with 39 days of instruction. Summer school courses are condensed into far fewer days. Attendance and punctuality are essential for academic success. Recommended attendance is a minimum of 80%. Students should expect to complete most of their course work in the lab, as teachers will be available to answer questions, grade assignments, and administer assessments. All assessments MUST be taken in the academic lab and proctored by the lab teacher. NO exceptions will be made.
All courses will need to be completed no later than August 1st to earn credit. Students will be expected to attend the lab for at least 1 hour per day, per course. Weekly attendance per course is 4 hours.
|Number Of Courses||Hours Of Attendance||Estimated Number Of Assignments|
|1 quarter credit||1 hour||24|
|2 quarter credit||2 hour||48|
Students will be expected to work in the lab. Cell phone use is not allowed for any reason, or under any circumstance. If a student chooses to bring a personal device to the lab, it will be taken. The student will be permitted to pick it up at the front desk when they leave.
All students taking Summer courses will be required to sign the computer/internet use agreement ensuring appropriate and beneficial use of technology in the lab. Students will also be required to sign the lab disclosure statement. Both documents are available on the ALA website or at the Junior High front desk. The parent/guardian of the student(s) will also be required to read and sign these documents.
Parents will be notified of any repeated issue that is not resolved by the lab teacher. Administrative action may be required in certain instances. (Please refer to the school discipline policy for more information, also found on the ALA website.)
4th Quarter NG Options
Due to Covid-19, 4th quarter recovery for all students who earn an NG will have the option of working with a core teacher to regain credit for any core class (math, science, english, and history). There is no charge to the student given the circumstances of term 4. Students who fall within this category will receive a specific letter, text, and phone call inviting you to attend the class with the core teacher. Safety procedures will be followed according to CDC guidelines for the state of Utah. Core teachers are as follows:
Math – Mr. Carroll
English – Miss Hillman
Science – Mr. Robertson
History – Mr. Workman
Students may qualify for one or both versions depending on their term grades this year.
