Student Roles & Responsibilities
Halifax Regional School Board Summer School courses are offered only to those students who are enrolled in the requested course in grades 7-12 and who have not met all the expected learning outcomes in the course . Students may only take ONE course at summer school. Summer School provides students with the opportunity to learn and meet the expected learning outcomes to earn credit and the requirements to advance to the next level.
NOTE:At the time of registration for all courses, the student or parent/guardian must provide a report card as proof that they have taken the course in which they are enrolling. No credit will be given to any student who has not completed the course prior to Summer School.
5 Week Courses: (offered in Math and Language Arts Grades 7-9 and Math and English Grades 10-12)
To register, the student must provide a report card or letter from the school administrator indicating they have taken the course in the 2011-12 school year. The student’s final grade will be entirely based on course assessment during summer school.
- Upgrading: Students are also eligible to enroll in a course for upgrading purposes. Students must show proof that they have completed the course and the final mark must be supplied on the date of registration in the form of a report card or letter from the school administrator.
- Out–of–Board Students: Out-of-Board students are welcome to attend Summer School under the same guidelines. If students are attending Summer School with the intention of using the credit, it is the student’s responsibility to ensure that the credit qualifies for their province of residence.
Students are expected to:
- complete all assignments
- obtain and complete all work missed due to absenteeism
The highly concentrated courses offered in the Summer School Program make full attendance essential. Students cannot miss more than three days (for any reason).
Students are expected to be on time for all classes. Classes will start promptly at 8:30 am. After this time, students are considered late.
