Sammamish High School

Accelerated Math condenses a year’s worth of content into four weeks. The accelerated courses are intensive and intended for students who already have a strong foundation and knowledge in the course. We believe that all students need a solid middle school mathematics foundation to demonstrate depth of understanding and the ability to communicate this understanding required for college and career readiness. As such, we strongly encourage that students discuss any enrollment in the district’s summer acceleration courses with their current math teacher to assess readiness.

Policies

Please take a moment to review our policies:


Grading

A summer math acceleration course is intensive and may not be a fit for every child. There is likely to be nightly homework, and frequent assessments throughout the four weeks. Those looking for an enrichment opportunity are encouraged to register for our Operation Ideation program.

The accelerated courses are not intended for students seeking to preview course content. Neither are they intended for students wanting to retake a course due to previously unsuccessful attempts.  Students that participate in the accelerated summer math course will earn a grade according to the following scale:

A – 90 plus or higher
B – 80 to 89%
C – 70 to 79%
NC (no credit) – less than 70%

Upon successful completion of the summer math course, students will be moved into the next sequenced math course for the 2019-20 school year.  Those students who do not earn a grade will not receive a recommendation to accelerate.  Should a parent elect to appeal the final grade, they can request a meeting with their child’s home school prior to the beginning of the school year to determine if accelerated placement is in the best interest of their child.


Attendance

Students are expected to attend class daily. With the fast pace of the course, teachers are unavailable to support students with extended absences. Students that miss more than 12 hours of class without permission from the summer school administrator may be dropped from the program. This is the equivalent of two days of class, but effectively two weeks of math content. Parents will be notified of the possibility for course removal before any action to withdraw their child. Refunds will not be provided due to absences or removal from the program. Absences may result in lower final grade due to lost content.


Conduct

In order to assure that the summer program is safe and fun for everyone involved, we do have a strict conduct policy.  Summer school students are held to the same standards of conduct as Bellevue students are during the school year. Students violating appropriate behavior code will be referred to the principal for discipline, which may range from an administrative conference up to and including expulsion.

Because we want every student to have a positive experience, we strive to work out any potential concerns with the child and the parent before withdrawing any child from the program. However, with limited resources in comparison to the school year, we reserve the right to remove a child from the summer program if their behavior is severely disruptive or creates a safety hazard. If this occurs, refunds for programs with tuition will not be provided.

Students and staff are expected to meet these expectations:

  1. Show respect for yourself, your peers, and your surroundings.
  2. Be to class on time, and ready to learn.
  3. Behave in a safe manner.
  4. Remain on campus while in session.
  5. Follow the directions from the summer school staff.
  6. Bellevue High School is a drug-free campus. There is no smoking in the vicinity of the school.
