Summer Education Program

NPHS Summer Education Program 2024


Program

North Penn High School will offer a course recovery opportunity via the 2024 Summer School Program. Online instruction begins Monday, June 24th, and ends Thursday, July 25th. There will be an additional few days to complete work, with a hard deadline on Sunday, July 28th, at midnight to allow students to complete any missed work. All courses are offered via our online program, Imagine Edgenuity, and North Penn staff serve as teachers of record for the classes. Your student will receive an email confirming registration and the Edgenuity login information on Monday, June 24, 2024 (on this day, all Summer School students will be expected to attend an in-person prescriptive test at North Penn High School to begin the course). 



Eligibility

Our summer education program is designed for students needing to remediate a course during the school year in which they earned an ‘E.’ Their counselor will notify students of eligibility mid June.  Once students know which courses for which they are eligible for summer remediation, a Registration Form (Google Form) will be available for students starting June 12, and it will close on June 17. 

Students will receive credit upon the successful completion of each course. Students may only take up to three full credits during summer school. Any NPHS student who wants to take more than three credits must gain approval from the building principal, Mr. Kyle Hassler.

Cost: Free to Students

Frequently Asked Questions


How does the 2024 NPHS Summer Education Program work?

 

The NPHS Summer Education Program requires students to complete courses through Edgenuity. The courses run asynchronously, meaning no live instruction from a teacher. A teacher of record is available via email, Google Meet, and in person to address questions. For more information, please visit Imagine Edgenuity

 

When does the 2024 NPHS Summer Education Program start and end?

 

Students will receive an email containing their Edgenuity login information to access their course(s) by Friday, June 23rd. Courses will go live starting on Monday, June 24th. Students must complete coursework on Friday, July 26th at 11:59 PM.

 

Can a student complete their summer school course before July 26th?

 

Yes. Since Edgenuity courses are self-paced, the more time students spend completing the coursework, the sooner they can meet the target completion date.

 

What kind of support is offered in the 2024 NPHS Summer Education Program?

 

Students can come to North Penn High School Monday through Thursday from 8 am to 11 am to receive in-person support for completing coursework. To be clear, teachers are not delivering instruction; they are simply helping the students complete the coursework assigned in the Edgenuity course(s). Also, students can meet with teachers via Google Meet if they do not have transportation to NPHS.

 

Is transportation provided to NPHS for the summer education program?

 

No, transportation is not provided for the NPHS Summer Education Program. However, while transportation is provided for ESY (Extended School Year), that program differs entirely from the NPHS Summer Education Program.

 

Is there a daily schedule for the 2024 NPHS Summer Education Program?

 

Students are not expected to log into their courses at a specific time. Students complete coursework at their own pace at whatever time they prefer; however, it is recommended that the students set up a consistent work schedule to ensure they meet their courses’ daily goals.

 

What happens if a student does not meet a course’s daily goals?

 

If a student is not meeting the daily goal of a course, that will increase the timing of the daily goal. For example, if a course has an initial daily goal of 45 minutes of work completion and the student does not meet that goal, the new timing of the daily goal could increase to 60 minutes or more of work completion. 

 

What happens after the conclusion of the NPHS Summer Education Program?

 

Summer school grades will be uploaded promptly in Infinite Campus, and school counselors may adjust students’ course schedules for the upcoming school year accordingly. 


What do the Actual Grade, Overall Grade, and Relative Grade mean?


Actual Grade - is the overall grade adjusted for progress if a student is behind. The aim is to show the impact of pacing on the student's course grade. 

Overall Grade - is the weighted average grade for completed activities based on the grade weights for each type of activity. The aim is to show mastery of content and skills in the course.

Relative Grade - is the grade a student would receive if they stopped working and received 0% for all unscored, counted activities. It provides a metric that can be used if a student drops the course.


What grade is recorded in Infinite Campus?


The Actual Grade will be recorded in Infinite Campus.
