KPBSD Policy Manual

BP 6177


Summer Institutes

For a summer program to be considered for credit, the following guidelines will be used:

  1. The program must enrich the student's educational experience or be unavailable within the student's educational program.
  2. The student and parents must substantiate that the content, rigor, and time requirements of the summer program rival that of a high school course--a minimum of 4,050 minutes (67.5 hours) in order to receive 1/2 elective credit.

The following procedures define how students may receive credit for rigorous summer institutes in academics or the arts.

  1. The student completes the Prior Approval for High School Credit for Summer Programs form (E 6177 ) and secures the signature of a high school counselor.
  2. The student submits the signed Prior Approval form to the building administrator. The student should attach a brochure or other information that describes the content of the program.
  3. The Instructional Team approves or denies high school credit for the program.
  4. After the student completes the program, s/he submits one or more written evaluations or an audio/video tape of a final performance to the building administrator. A credit award is contingent upon a favorable evaluation.
  5. Up to 1.0 credit for graduation may be granted.
