Downingtown Area School District
Summer Original Credit Program
Registration for Summer 2019 courses will open here on April 1, 2019.
The Downingtown Area School District is offering a Summer Original Credit Program that includes coursework for original credit (a course not previously taken). Original credit courses are reported on the official transcript and the grades are calculated into the student’s grade point average (GPA). Courses are aligned to the DASD curriculum and PA Core Standards (or national standards if PA standards for the course do not exist). In order to progress to subsequent courses, students may be asked to take the DASD midterm and/or final exam and/or demonstrate the prerequisite skills necessary.
Students will need their own device to access the Internet. Devices are not provided by the district for summer courses. Students who are planning to be without Internet access for more than a week (e.g. on vacation in the mountains) should wait and take the course during the school year.
Please note: Students should expect to spend a minimum of 12-15 hours per week on a .5 credit course and 25-30 hours per week on a 1-credit course. Summer school courses cover the same amount of material as the year-long course, so plan accordingly!
