Excellence for Every Child
Summer school sessions for Knox County high school students will take place from 8:30 a.m. to noon, Monday through Friday from May 25 to June 22, 2017 at all high schools. During this time, classes will be offered for makeup credit and new credits.
The cost to attend summer school sessions is $10 for all courses, besides Driver’s Education, which is $150. These non-refundable fees must be paid the first day of the student’s summer session.
Courses offered for summer school are: English I, II, III and IV; Personal Finance; Economics; Government; U.S. History; Works History and Geography; Geometry; Bridge Math; Algebra I and II; Physical Science; Ecology; and Wellness.
All classes will be taken online, except Driver’s Education. Every student will be required to attend class from 8:30 a.m. to noon for the first 10 days. If adequate progress is shown, the student may then choose to complete coursework from home, or any other location. All students will return to school to complete the End of Course test. If a student fails to show continued progress while working from home, he will be required to return to school to complete work.
Driver’s Education will be offered at only two locations—Central High School and Hardin Valley Academy. Enrollment for these courses will take place from 4-7 p.m. on April 24-25 (Central) and April 26-27 (Hardin Valley). If a student does not enroll during one of these enrollment periods, he/she will not be enrolled in Driver’s Education. Driver’s Education students will attend five days of class (May 25-31) from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and then complete Range and Driving during one of three seven-day blocks in either a two-hour morning or afternoon session. Space is limited for Driver’s Education to 32 students at Central and 36 students at Hardin Valley.
There will be no summer school for middle school programs this year.
