Welcome to Leonardtown High School
LHS Summer School Program
LHS APEX Summer School Program provides an oportunity for students to complete courses previously failed at LHS through a blended learning format. To be eligible for credit recovery, students must have earned an overall average of F for the school year (with an overall average grade between 45% – 59%). Students who earn below a 45% average are not eligible to enroll in credit recovery. Students may take up to two courses, but it is strongly recommended that students enroll and work on one course at a time. Upon successful completion of the course, a grade of 59.5% will replace the grade originally earned and will be transferred to the student’s transcript. Note that the summer school grades do not replace the transcript grade which the student received during the school year. Participation in the summer school program also DOES NOT change a student’s fourth marking period GPA; therefore, eligibility for fall sports does not change through participation in summer school.
Students are only eligible to participate in the courses identified below.
Registration will be held from Tuesday, May 30th to Friday, June 9th. All signed forms must be turned in to the Guidance Department. There is NO COST for this program. If you have any questions or concerns about this process, please contact your Guidance Counselor or Mr. Readyhough (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Classes will start Monday, June 12th and run Monday through Thursday in room 2D25 until July 6th, 2017. The APEX lab will be open from 8 am - 11 am. The APEX lab will not be open on Tuesday, July 4, 2017. Students must take quizzes and exams at LHS but may otherwise work at home or at the public library. Students will only have 4 weeks to complete the APEX course(s). Attendance is critical to student success. Please understand that the format of this program is primarily an independent study. This means that students will have to do most of the work on their own with very limited instructional support. Students who misbehave during lab time at LHS will be removed from the program.
