    Original Credit

    Physical Education will run from June 13 to July 10, 2022. All other original credit summer school courses will run from June 13 to August 7, 2022. (No classes on July 4th for the holiday.) 

    Summer school original credit courses are completely online (except for Physical Education courses). There will be optional Zoom sessions for our online students each week. If students cannot attend the Zooms, they will be able to watch a recording. 

    Registration for summer school original credit courses will be from April 4 - April 29, 2022.

    Original Credit courses are courses that students are taking for the first time. In just 8 weeks, the students will learn the same material that other students will learn over the course of the entire school year, so families should plan accordingly.

    Original credit courses are reported on the student’s official transcript and the grades are calculated into the student’s grade point average (GPA).  

     

    Recovery Credit

    Recovery credit summer school courses will run from June 27 - July 22, 2022. DASD teachers will be available for tutoring Mon-Thurs. (No tutoring/classes on July 4th for the holiday.) In the 2022 Summer Session, there is no cost for credit recovery courses. 

    Summer school recovery credit courses are self-paced and asynchronous, but students can opt to come to Downingtown West for face-to-face tutoring or meet with the teacher on Zoom. 

    Recovery credit courses are for any students who have failed a high school course. Registration for summer school recovery credit courses will open here in late spring.

    Recovery credit courses include coursework for a previously failed high school course. Recovery credit courses are reported on the official transcript and the grades are calculated into the student’s grade point average (GPA). Please note: These courses are ADDED to the GPA and transcript; they do not replace the originally failed course.

    Our recovery credit courses are designed especially for high school students who did not pass a course initially but learned enough to make a complete repetition of the class unnecessary. Students who require direct instruction should retake the entire course during the school year.

    Students will be in class working at their own pace to master the material and to earn course credit.
