Summer School 2017

Summer School 2017 is fast approaching!

The Crow River ALC at Hutchinson High School will be hosting summer school during the summer of 2017. We will not be dividing into two sessions this year as in the past.  Classes will meet June 5-9, 12-16, 19-23, and June 26-30.  Classes well be held from 8:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Monday through Friday.

Because of construction at the high school, summer school for the Crow River ALC will be held at the Hutchinson Middle School, 1365 South Grade Road, Hutchinson, MN 55350.  Students may park in the east parking lot and enter the building using the east entrances.  You will receive your classroom location when you enter the building.  Summer school offices will be located in the middle school media center if you have questions.

Summer school classes include English 9A, English 9B, English 10A, English 10B, English 11A, English 11B, English 12A, English 12B, History 9, History 10A, History 10B, Economics, Geography, Government, Ancient World History, Modern World History, Algebra IA or IB, Geometry A or B, Algebra II A or B, Science 9 Chemistry, Science 9 Physics, Science 9 Earth, Cell Biology, Biology Kingdoms.  If you require another course, we do have some other classes (e.g. writing focus, literature focus, etc.) we may be able to offer.  Please ask if you don’t see what you need in terms of elective courses in the core areas.

Registration begins March 20, 2017. Early registration is encourage as courses fill up fast.

Summer school will follow a credit recovery model and an independent study model. Students must complete one course in order to begin another.

Credit Recovery: Students have already taken a course during their high school career (for example, a student has taken English 10A but received an F in the class) and didn’t receive credit for that course. Students will take a diagnostic test to determine what standards were not mastered. A course tailored to the student’s needs will be created. Successful completion of that material will result in completion of the course with credit for a grade of “S” or Satisfactory. Not successfully completing the course will result in a grade of “U” or Unsatisfactory. No letter grades will be given for summer school courses for credit recovery. However, if the student would rather complete the whole course again to achieve a letter grade that holds GPA weight, he/she should inform his/her teacher of this desire and retake the entire course.

Independent Study: Students who have not taken a given course who are in need of taking the entire course for the first time may do so. A minimum of 17 hours of seat time is required to connect with the instructor. Some course work may be done at home at the teacher’s discretion.  Students are eligible to receive a letter grade and course credit.

During summer school, students must complete one course before beginning another. We ask that students attend every day until course work is complete. Because we are using an online system, students may also work on some of their course work at home. Being absent for three consecutive days unexcused will result in an administrative conference and may result in loss of credit for the course and dropped enrollment from summer school. Please call Sarah McGraw, attendance secretary, at 320-234-2691 to report any absences.
