Elementary Literacy & Math

Our elementary program is an invitation-only program, providing curriculum review and support for students determined to need extended instruction in either Literacy (targeting grades 3-4) or Math (targeting grade 4-5). Each session will include 25 minutes of direct instruction (1:1 or small group settings), and student well-being activities with community partners and educators. When registering, parents & guardians will have the option of enrolling their student for either entirely in-person learning at the school or entirely virtual instruction. These learning models are not interchangeable, and students will stay in that model for duration of program.

Middle School Summer Math

Our middle school program is an invitation-only program, providing review and support for current middle school students who have already taken, but have not yet met standard in either IMT1 (Integrated Math Topics 1) or IMT2 (Integrated Math Topics 2).

Information will also be sent to the families of all middle school students who were sent a 4th quarter Interim Progress Report with a grade of a D or F in semester 2 (as of May 12, 2021). If those students are unable to achieve a passing grade of D or better for the end of semester 2, they will also be eligible to register for the program.

Each day will include teacherdirected instruction and independent work in a group setting, with a mid-morning break for engagement activities with their peers and our community partner organizations. When registering, parents will have the option to enroll their student for either entirely in-person learning at the school or entirely virtual instruction.

Our high school program is a credit recovery opportunity for students who have already taken a required course, but did not receive credit with a final grade of I, F, NC, or W.

There will be two sessions offered with semester 1 or semester 2 courses available (see below). Students may enroll in a semester course for each session, for a maximum of two semester courses totaling 1.0 credits. To register students will first meet with their counselor, to verify the courses they are eligible to retake, and get an approval code. The code is required for registration. When registering, students will have the choice of a hybrid or a virtual model (see descriptions below). These learning models are not interchangeable, and students will stay in that model for duration of program.

Conduct: In order to assure that the summer program is safe and fun for everyone involved, students are held to the same standards of conduct as Bellevue students are during the school year.  Students and staff are expected to meet these expectations:

  1. Show respect for self, peers, and surroundings.
  2. Attend in-person or remote classes or remote meetings on time, and ready to learn.
  3. Behave in a safe and appropriate manner.
  4. For students in the hybrid program, remain on campus while class is in session. Students remain on campus only for the duration of their session(s).
  5. Follow the directions from the summer school staff.
  6. Sammamish High School is a drug-free campus including no smoking or vaping in the vicinity of the school.
  7. For student drivers, drive safely and park only in the designated parking spaces.

Students in violation of the BSD behavior code will be referred to the principal for appropriate interventions, consequences, or potential discipline. These may range from an administrative conference up to and including expulsion from the summer school program. We want each and every student to have a positive experience, thus we strive to address any potential concerns with the student and the parent before withdrawing any student from program. However, we reserve the right to remove a student from summer school if their behavior is severely disruptive or creates a safety hazard.


Outside Learning for Credit

Students who wish to take a course for grade improvement, for original credit, or for acceleration may apply with their counselor to take a course through an independent provider through the Outside Learning for Credit process. This process is not coordinated by the summer school office. Contact your school counselor and additional information can be found on the Revised Outside Learning Credit Procedure page.
