Each year students take advantage of summer school course offerings for a variety of reasons: credit recovery, to lighten your course load, to create room for additional classes or work ahead in a curriculum sequence. Just as there are many reasons for taking a summer school course, there are also options for how to take a course: Online or in a classroom. Below is a list of approved summer school providers and links to additional information.
Any students looking to take a summer school course, whether online or in a classroom, must complete the Outside Coursework Pre-Approval form and return it to their school counselor.
eLo course are taught online by local teachers from district 204, 203 and 200. Each session runs for 3 weeks over the summer. We expect students to follow the pacing guidelines outlined by the teacher. Although students are not required to log-in to the course at a set time or day, the most successful students develop a consistent work routine. Students may not finish the course before the term end date. If scheduling conflicts arise, students should inform the instructor and work with them to develop a plan.
eLo offers the following courses over the summer terms: American Government, Consumer Economics, US History, Geometry, Health, Music Theory, Psychology
