The principal is responsible for the overall
administration of all summer programs at the school. All archdiocesan
policies are applicable to summer programs. The principal may delegate
the day-to-day operations of the summer programs.Each year the
decision to have a summer program is left to the sole discretion of the
principal, along with the pastor (in the case of parish schools).
Considerations for implementing a summer program must include financial
feasibility, purpose (e.g., enrichment and remediation), and demand
for the summer programs. Current teachers in the school are
eligible to apply to teach in summer school but have no right to be
selected or preferred for such employment. Teachers employed in past
summer programs have no tenure rights or preferential rights to
employment.The following practices shall be observed in all school-sponsored summer programs:
summer programs shall have a budget that includes payroll, classroom
materials, student activities, school maintenance costs, and utilities.
Summer school payrolls should follow normal school year practices.
Students enrolled in the regular school program are automatically covered by school supplemental medical insurance through Myers-Stevens & Toohey & Co. Inc.
All summer program finances shall be posted in the school ledger.
summer program staff shall participate in an orientation that includes
the mission of the Catholic school; child abuse reporting requirements, the archdiocesan safe environment policies, and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles Guidelines for Adults Interacting with Minors at Parish or Parish School Activities or Events; supervision policies; field trip policies; and safety and health procedures (i.e., first aid and CPR), Emergency Plans, and Injury and Illness Prevention Programs.
