2021 Summer School Information 


Junior High Summer School

Target audience: Incoming 5th through 8th Grade Students

Duration: June 7th through 24th

Location: Oswego East High School

Summer School is an opportunity for your child to complete one of two different types of courses offered for non-credit enrichment.  Skill Recovery (SR) courses are for students who failed a core subject who would like to gain skills necessary for next year and Honors Prep (HP) courses are for students planning to take honors level Math or ELA courses the following year to provide both review and initial instruction in core standards necessary for the rigorous honors curriculum. Junior High Summer School courses will be taught in a Blended format for Summer 2021.  Blended courses allow students to learn in part through online learning, utilizing a program called Edgenuity. This format will allow students some control over the time and pace of their learning. 

If you have questions, please contact:  Daniel Arntzen (darntzen@sd308.org), Secondary Summer School Coordinator at 630- 636-4520 or Dr. Eric Watt (ewatt@sd308.org), Director of Summer School at 630-636-3673.

High School Summer School

Target audience: Incoming 9th through 12th Grade Students

Duration: Session 1 - June 7th through 24th 
Session 2 - June 28th through July 15th

Location: Oswego East High School

Summer School is an opportunity for your child to complete one of four different types of courses offered for high school students.  The first three provide High School Credit to those seeking it:

  • Initial Credit (IC) courses are for students taking a credit-bearing course for the first time. Initial Credit students are allowed to work remotely (e.g., work from home) and independently as long as they satisfy two criteria: maintain at least a C in the course and remain on pace. If they do not satisfy one or both of the criteria, they will be required to attend Summer School until they can meet both criteria.
    • Students enrolled in Civics (IC) will need to attend Summer School on specific days set by the teacher
  • Dual Credit (DC) courses, after successful completion and paperwork submission, count as both SD308 credit and Waubonsee Community College credit. These courses are offered for Initial Credit and students will follow IC attendance requirements.
  • Credit Recovery (CR) courses are for students who previously failed a credit-bearing course and need to make up the credit. Credit Recovery (CR) students are required to attend Summer School EACH and every day.
  • Enrichment (E) courses are non-credit-bearing courses that any student can take in order to explore an area of interest or gain new skills in preparation for rigorous courses during the school year. Students enrolled in Enrichment (E) courses are required to attend Summer School every day that the course is in session. 

Please note: High School Summer School is a separate program from Extended School Year, that is part of the Special Education Department.
