Summer School Begins at Andover on Monday, June 22, 2009


The Bloomfield Hills School District, along with the summer school staff, is committed to a diverse high school summer
program. This year’s course work will provide options for high school students who will continue their formal education
in courses designed to enhance, advance, or provide make-up credit. Parent and student reasons are varied for select-
ing an extended study. However, the District and staff reasons stay constant: provide a caring and trusting environment
committed to nurturing a passion for lifelong learning. High school students will have an option for credit recovery in 9th
grade World History, Biology, Algebra I, Geometry, Chemistry and Economics - all courses required for a high school
diploma.

Regular registration can be done online, via phone, walk-in, fax or mail-in. To register, fill out the application form on
page 7, and pay by cash, credit card, check, or money order, payable to Bloomfield Hills Schools, and mail to the address

When in doubt, register early. Full tuition refunded per dates below.

TUITION
Resident tuition for high school will be assessed at $225 per half credit course. Non-residents will be charged $275.
A full credit high school course for a resident is $450 or $550 for non-resident. Tuition must be paid in full at the
time of registration by cash, credit card, check, or money order, made payable to Bloomfield Hills Schools.
Last Day of Registration for 1st Semester:
Monday, June 15, 8 a.m. - 4 p.m., at the Athletics, Recreation & Community Services Office
Last Day of Registration for 2nd Semester:
Thursday, July 2, 8 a.m.- 4 p.m.
A $50 late fee will be assessed after May 26 for 1st semester and $50 late fee for 2nd semester after June 26.

-- NO REFUNDS --
After June 19th for three (3) week courses and June 26 for six (6) week courses.
ALLOW THREE TO SIX WEEKS FOR CASH OR CHECK REFUNDS

GRADE REPORTING
Upon the completion of course requirements, grades will be mailed to the students' home schools.
Incompletes will not be given a grade option.

Please note: It is the student's responsibility to check with his/her home school to be sure that a copy of his/her grade
has been received and subsequently recorded on the school transcript. The Bloomfield Hills School District makes no
claim as to the transferability of credit earned in summer school to a school outside the District.

CREDIT EARNED
Courses offered will be determined based on sufficient enrollment for each course. Minimum enrollment numbers
will be determined by the Summer School principal and will be designed to accommodate the needs of students as
well as to provide for a solvent program. If you do not receive a verbal or written notification by June 12, assume
that the course will be offered.

Each half credit course is equivalent to a half year of regular school instruction and requires 2 hours 45 minutes
per day. Therefore, two sections for five and one-half hours a day (7:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.) must be elected if a student
wishes to take a full year (1 credit) of any course. This is a difficult undertaking, and only the most capable students
should consider attempting this concentrated work load.

PASS/FAIL & AUDITING OF CLASSES


Students may elect to receive a pass/fail grade for only one summer school course. During the first week of school,
students will be given a memo describing optional grading. These memos must be returned by June 24, 2009, for
the option of pass/fail or an audit. An audit grade means no credit; students who choose this option are generally
looking for enrichment. Students should understand that, by taking a course for either a "pass" or "fail" grade, no
grade will be included in the grade point average. Credit will be awarded for a "pass" grade. Full tuition is charged
when auditing with no credit earned.

ATTENDANCE POLICY
Due to the condensed nature of summer school,
the attendance policy is incorporated in the following statements.
1. In the event of an absence, parents are required to call the summer school office and
leave a message at (248) 341-5768 by 10 a.m.
2. The office will call home if no call is received by 10 a.m. of that same school day.
• Tardiness beyond 15 minutes is considered an absence.
• Because of the number of instructional hours required, there are NO excused absences.
3. Students will lose credit after missing more than two days when taking a 24 day class.
4 . Students will lose credit after missing more than one day when taking a 12 day class.
• Attendance for first semester cannot roll over to second semester.
• Students who lose credit because of attendance may still continue to audit the class.
• Any students who loses credit because of attendance will not receive a refund.

PROGRESS REPORTS
