CCSD Summer School 2022 In-Person & Online Options


    Registration For Summer School is now closed.


    Registration Information for Credit Progression & Credit Retrieval Courses


    OPTION ONE: In-person Summer School Credit Retrieval 

    Students who earned a D or an F in a class are eligible to take a Summer School course that is equivalent to the course in which they received a D or an F. The grade they receive in Summer School will replace their initial grade, regardless of whether the Summer School grade is higher or lower. The grade earned initially by the student will be reflected on their transcript but will not be calculated into their GPA.
    Students may take a Summer School class to retrieve .50 of a credit, provided that they receive a Summer School grade that is higher than an F. 

    Transportation may be available from a student's home high school to the session site. However, if a student's home school is the site of the particular session of summer school (Overland for Session I or Eaglecrest for Session II), then transportation will NOT be available.

    No transportation will be available to classes held at CCIC.

  • Algebra I


    The content of Algebra 1 Deepens and extends students’ understanding of linear and exponential relationships by contrasting them with each other and identifying and exploring the underline mathematical structures that they share. Students explore many examples of functions, including sequences, and analyze them graphically, numerically, symbolically, and verbally. Students apply linear models to data and analyze how well the models fit the data. Additionally, students engage in methods for analyzing, solving, in applying quadratic functions. 

    3SSAL1CPS1 - semester 1 - Equations and Inequalities, Numeric Expressions, Algebraic Expressions, Exploring Quadratic Functions in Context

    3SSAL1CPS2 - semester 2 - Structure of Quadratic Functions, Modeling with Quadratic Functions, Linear and Exponential Functions, Statistics

  • Algebra II


    Students in CP Algebra 2 develop a deeper understanding of all aspects of functions: graphing, analyzing, transforming, performing, operations with, composing new functions, and solving equations using them. Functions studied include linear, quadratic, polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, rational, trigonometric, and radical. Students further develop their statistical knowledge by studying the collection, analysis, and interpretation of data, and the connections to probability. Throughout the year students strengthen their use of the common core standard math practices, with a particular emphasis on making sense of problems and modeling with mathematics.
