Online Summer School for Credit Recovery or Progression:

  • CCSD Online Summer School for Credit Recovery is for students who received a D or F in the equivalent class taken during the school year. Students who received an A, B, or C during the regular school year are NOT eligible to repeat the class in Summer School to improve their grade. Students seeking credit recovery/grade replacement should refer to the in-person course information on the previous page. The in-person Health class will be available for any student who needs credit recovery -or- credit progression. 

    Any year long class will only be offered in the same Session that coincides with the Semester. For example, US History Semester 1 will only be offered in Session I and Semester 2 in Session II. If your student needs to take a Semester 1 class, it will have to be taken in Session I and a Semester 2 class will have to be taken in Session II.

    Please be aware CCSD IT team have limited access to all CCSD programs and applications from devices outside of the United States due to a need to increase our security measures. This means that students who have registered for Online Summer School will NOT have access to ANY CCSD PROGRAMS or APPS that require authentication if you are outside the United States.  This includes Canvas and my.cherrycreek.  If you are planning to be out of the country during a summer school session, you will not be able to register for a class during that time 

    The grade students receive in Summer School will replace their initial grade, regardless of whether the Summer School grade is higher or lower. The grade earned during Summer School will be reflected on their transcript and will be calculated into their GPA. Students may take the Summer School class to retrieve .50 of a credit, provided that they receive a Summer School grade that is higher than an F.  

    Students are eligible to earn a total of .5 credit in each session of Online Summer School. Students who need credit recovery for .25 credit (quarter) of NCAA-approved courses are also eligible to enroll.

    CCSD Online Summer School for Credit Progression is for students wishing to take a class to advance in a particular subject area. Credit Progression allows the student an opportunity to earn original credit in the department of their choice. Any student electing to take a course for progression should plan on enrolling in the full course (both semesters for a year-long course.) The grade earned during each quarter of Online Summer School will be reflected on the student's transcript and will be calculated into their cumulative GPA.

    • Current 8th-graders (incoming 9th-graders) are only eligible to take online Math courses for progression if the prerequisites have been met in middle school. Prior written approval by their middle school counselors is required. Registrations will not be complete until counselor approval has been received. 
    • For 8th-graders, no high school credit will be awarded. The course and grade earned will appear on their high school transcript but will not be calculated into their high school GPA.

    • Online summer school courses are self-paced and quarter-based. All work for each quarter is due by the end of that particular quarter. Students will earn two quarter grades instead of one semester grade.
