Summer school remains under the direction of the principal or an administrator appointed by the principal.

Summer school courses that meet for 120 minutes per day for a full six weeks (or the equivalent of 120 minutes per day for six weeks or a total of 60 instructional hours) may be equated with a semester course. Summer school courses that meet for 4 hours per day for a full six weeks (or the equivalent of 4 hours per day for six weeks or a total of 120 instructional hours) may be equated with a yearlong course.

Courses designed to remediate student learning do not qualify for academic credit. Such courses are those required for the admission of entering freshmen who need additional skill development, most commonly in math and language arts areas.

When continuing students retake courses to either master previously learned material or qualify to proceed in a sequence-based course area, they do not earn academic credit.

Courses taken to make up academic failures should be so indicated on the transcript; F grades must not be deleted from the transcript (the title, date, and academic grade of the make-up course should be clearly indicated on the transcript and the grade point average [GPA] should be adjusted to reflect the make-up grade).

If the same course is taken again (for either remediation or review/qualification), academic credit cannot be earned twice. Both grades are to be recorded on the transcript; the GPA is computed using the higher grade.

For general policies applicable to all summer programs, see Summer Programs.
