General InformationHempfield School District's Summer School Program provides opportunities for students to enrich their understanding of basic learning skills, to acquire additional knowledge, and to achieve their fullest academic potential.
During the summer of 2017, we will offer classes in an online format (with the exception of Fundamentals of Design, Communication Technology 1, Math, and Physical Education. Hempfield teachers develop the curriculum and teach all classes. Students will complete the majority of their coursework at home online; however, students will be required to report to the school once for an orientation and once per week for five weeks to meet with their teachers in a regular classroom setting. Non-Hempfield Students are required to verify with their "home" school that their summer school course credits will be accepted.
Computers will be available in the Hempfield High School Counseling Office Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. for students who do not have Internet access at home. Students must be capable of meeting and maintaining the technology-based requirements of the course, to include written assignments and all assessments.
Health, Physical Education, Family and Consumer Science, Fundamentals of Art & Design, Communication Technology 1, and Personal Financial Literacy are the classes offered for advanced credit. This allows students to take the course during the summer for credit rather than during the school year, freeing up credits for other electives. All other courses are offered for remediation, subjects previously failed or for the correction of academic deficiencies.Summer School DatesJune 12, 2017 - June 23, 2017Advanced Fundamentals of Art & Design
