Skowhegan Area High School Summer School Program – Student Rules & Guidelines

Goal – Our goal is for this summer school program to provide students with standards-based instruction in a rigorous setting designed to provide additional instruction and assessment so students meet the standards and/or recover credit.

Dates – Summer School Dates are as follows:

  • Week 1 – July 6, 7, 8, 9
  • Week 2 – July 13, 14, 15, 16
  • Week 3 – July 20, 21, 22, 23
  • Week 4 – July 27, 28, 29, 30,
*All students must attend a minimum of one week of formal instruction.

Location – The Summer School will be located at Skowhegan Area High School. Classes will run from 8:00 a.m. to noon, Monday through Thursday.

Cost – There will be a $25.00 fee for all students which will be refunded upon their successful completion of the course. (Any students who are removed for discipline, attendance, or other related reasons will not receive a refund.)

Attendance – Because each class is such a large portion of the course, attendance is extremely important. One absence could be made up through assignments. A second absence would necessitate withdrawing from the course without refund. Extreme cases will be considered provided that the student has an exemplary grade in their current summer school course. Students are expected to be on time for all classes. Two tardies will result will be considered an absence and a third tardy will result in the student being withdrawn without refund.

Discipline – The Summer School program necessitates a condensed period of instruction which requires students to be respectful of themselves, their teachers, and their peers. If a student is removed from a classroom they will be removed from the summer instructional program without refund.

Transportation – Transportation will be provided.
Canaan Elementary Cornville Elementary
Mercer Elementary Smithfield Elementary
Norridgewock-Mill Stream School Mobile Station/East Front St

Grade Reporting – Weekly progress reports will be provided for each student. Students who are “on track” will continue to receive instruction. Those who have fallen behind will meet with the director.

General Rules –
  • Regular school rules apply to summer school including but not limited to:
  • Respectful behavior is expected of all summer school students at all times.
