ISD High School Summer School

The primary purpose of the ISD Summer School program is to provide options for students in pursuit of their graduation requirements. Summer School is only available to students who live within the ISD boundaries and were in grades 7-12 (7th graders can only take online classes) during the 2019-20 school year. If you are residing within the ISD boundaries but are home-schooled, attend a Private School or an Online School, please contact the Registrar at your boundary High School to register for Summer School prior to filling out the Summer School registration form. If seating is limited, priority will be given to upperclassmen.

The max classes a student could take in summer school is 3 classes. Either 1 in person and 2 online or 2 in person and 1 online.

We have 4 types of Summer School Programs Available

1. In person credit recovery and grade improvement

Note that "in person" summer school is what we've traditionally used to describe our credit recovery summer school (opposed to our online offerings). However, given the COVID-19 impact on schools, we will modify summer school accordingly. Dependent upon the Governor’s pacing and phasing of school re-opening, we currently hope to host once-a-week small group, in-person sessions at Issaquah High blended with four days of remote learning. If guidance or phasing prevent us from meeting in person even in small groups, we will provide classes solely through remote learning offered by ISD teachers. The subjects/courses we are offering and dates of learning remain the same.

Program details

  • July 6-July 31
  • 1st period: 8 a.m.-10 a.m.
  • 2nd period: 10:05 a.m.-12:05 p.m.

Courses available

  • Math: Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2
  • Science: Biology, Chemistry
  • English: Literature 9, Literature 10, American Literature, Senior English

2. In person credit accrual

We will only be offering credit accrual for incoming juniors and seniors who need PE or WA State History in order to meet graduation requirements. Dependent upon the Governor’s pacing and phasing of school re-opening, we currently hope to host once-a-week small group, in-person sessions at Issaquah High blended with four days of remote learning. If guidance or phasing prevent us from meeting in person even in small groups, we will provide these classes solely through remote learning offered by ISD teachers. The subjects/courses we are offering and dates of learning remain the same.

In person courses are FREE OF CHARGE. Online Health is free for students in grades 9-12 but students in grades 7-8 must pay the online course fee. Online courses are free of charge for students who are credit deficient, when the course is not available in person. If the course is available in person and you prefer online, you must pay the online course fee. See chart below for what credits determine if students are credit deficient to make them eligible for free online courses.

Students on track to graduate who want to take additional online courses and credit deficient students who are choosing to take a course online rather than in person must pay $375 for each course. Middle school students taking Online Health must pay $400 for the course. Scholarships are available for those meeting federal guidelines. View the scholarship application.
