2021 Summer School
Summer School Credit Recovery Registration is now open! Please complete the Summer School registration form to reserve your space.
- Summer School will run from June 24 to July 20.
- All courses are FREE (no cost).
- Summer School courses are for recovery credit (retake a course that you previously failed).
- Students may register for up to two courses at a time on a first come, first serve basis.
- Students will work at their own pace and can work on the course at any time, but must attend one session at David Douglas High School where teacher assistance is available.
- The only grade that can be earned in Credit Recovery is a “C”.
- When complete, students can sign up for another course.
- The NCAA Clearinghouse does not accept David Douglas High School’s credit recovery to satisfy their core requirements.
If you have a specific question, please email your counselor directly.
