    Original Credit

    Registration for original credit summer school courses is now closed.

    Original credit summer school courses in Session I will run from June 14 - July 8. Original credit summer school courses in Session I and II will run from June 14 -August 6, 2021. (No classes on July 5th for the holiday.)

    Summer school original credit courses are completely online (except for Physical Education courses) and open to any students who have completed 8th grade. There will be optional Zoom sessions for our online students each week.

    Registration for summer school original credit courses will be from April 6 - April 23, 2021.

    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).  

     

    Credit Recovery

    Registration for credit recovery summer school courses closes on Wednesday, June 16th.

    Credit recovery summer school courses will run from June 21 - July 15, 2021. DASD teachers will be available for tutoring Mon-Thurs. (No tutoring on July 5th for the holiday.)

    Summer school credit recovery 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. 

    Credit recovery courses are open to any students who have finished 9th grade. Registration for summer school credit recovery courses will open here in late spring.

    Credit recovery 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 credit recovery 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.  A DASD teacher will be available in person and on Zoom for tutoring.
