ISD High School Summer School 2021

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* in the 2020-21 school year. If you are residing within the ISD boundaries but are home-schooled, attend Private School or 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.

In person courses are FREE OF CHARGE. Online Health is free for students in grades 9-12 but students in grade 8 must pay the online course fee. Online courses are free of charge for students taking the class for credit recovery and/or grade improvement, 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, credit deficient students who are choosing to take a course online rather than in person, and middle school students taking Online Health must pay $400 for each course. *Scholarships available for those meeting federal guidelines.
