and parent meetings that the senior high schools are now accepting
summer school applications.

about the Summer School registration time period and process.
3. Encourage students to meet with their counselors to discuss A-G
requirements and program needs.
4. Send home parent notification/summer school application to eligible
students who have failed or received a D in a core subject(s).
5. Follow-up with students about parent notification/application letters prior
to June 18, 2010.
6. Program students in the appropriate credit recovery course(s) to avoid
changes in July.
7. Staff summer school credit recovery classes based on registration data and
summer school norms.

Classification Reports” including AT74 and CL76 by teacher within
department (R-2) during the pre-planning period.
