summer school policy statement and general regulations


Because Summer School is a concentrated program of study, regulations must be strictly enforced. In most cases, courses are meeting for the minimal amount of time allowable by the State of Ohio guidelines.  

Summer School is an opportunity for students to obtain credit through direct instruction.  This format and schedule may not fit with every family’s schedule. If that is the case, please see your guidance counselor to explore other educational options.

1.    Students who are residents of the Oakwood City School District may enroll in any course for which they are eligible by payment of the appropriate course fee.  Non-residents will be accepted on a space available basis upon payment of the appropriate course fee plus tuition surcharge.  Dependents of non-resident Oakwood staff may enroll at the same tuition rate as resident students.  Both tuition and any applicable course fees must be paid at the time of registration.

2.    Summer school course offerings are published with the understanding that an offering may be canceled if insufficient students sign up.

3.  Tuition fees do not include the costs of any paperbacks, workbooks, materials, supplies, or field trip expenses, which might be needed in fulfilling the requirements of the course.

4.    A maximum of three (3) units of NEW credit within the required units for graduation may be earned in Summer School without special permission of the Senior High School Principal. Note:  No more than one (1) of the three (3) units of new credit may be in a core discipline area i.e. English, Math, Science, Social Studies.

5.   A student who takes a course for "no credit" will have a notation placed on his or her permanent record to indicate class participation.

6.   Time does not allow for teachers to be taken from instruction to deal with inappropriate student behavior.  Therefore, students who are disruptive will be removed from the class.

7.   One day of Summer School class equals one week of typical instruction during the regular school year.  Courses offering credit toward graduation (Grades 9-12) are planned at minimum requirements; therefore, a student must be in attendance on ALL DAYS except in the event of personal illness and other approved emergencies. Oakwood City School District Policy #5200 does not apply to Summer School courses due to the highly concentrated timeline. Therefore, the attendance policy listed below is what will be enforced for Summer School.

•    In no situation may a student miss more than three (3) days per 120-hour course, two (2) days per 60-hour course, or one (1) day per 40-hour course.  If that number has been exceeded, the student will not receive a passing grade and will not receive credit for the course.

•    In order for an absence to be excused, it must be approved by the Summer School Principal, Tim Badenhop at 297-5328.

•    If the absence is not excused, all credit will be lost for that day with no opportunity for make-up.

•    The following absences will be considered excused:
          o    Personal Illness
          o    Family Emergency

•    The following absences will be NOT be considered excused and will NOT be considered family emergencies (and will result in lost credit for that day with no opportunity for make-up):
           o    Family Vacation
           o    Camp, Practice, Competition or Work

Please note that summer camps for your sports                        teams are not considered excused. If a student
plans to attend the summer camp with the      
team, the student should sign up for a Summer 
School session that does not conflict with the camp.
            o    Doctor (or other) Appointment (these should be scheduled before or after Summer School hours)
            o   There are many other types of absences not listed above that may be considered unexcused. If the absence does not fall under the "excused" category above, it will be considered "unexcused."

•    Tardiness:
              o  A student will be permitted to be tardy to class no more than three(3) times per 60-hour course (or two (2) times per 40-hour course). If that number has been exceeded, the student will not receive a passing grade and will not receive credit for the course.
            o  Tardiness of fifteen 15 minutes or more will be counted as one-half (1/2) day of absence.
