Criteria for Registration:
Registering for courses – Students must register through the BHS Counseling Department by June 29th, 2018. Student admission to Brighton Summer School is subject to the following:
- Students must have been enrolled in the course for the entire academic year prior
- Students must have taken the final examination, if applicable, the prior academic year
- Students must be a resident of or currently attend the Brighton Central School District
Registering for exams only* – If an eligible student needs only to retake a New York State Regents examination, arrangements should be made through the BHS Counseling Department by June 29th, 2018.
Potential Exam Review:
If a student is registering for an exam only (not a full course offering) there may be an opportunity to participate in a brief review in the days leading up to the August exam. Any review opened to students registered for exams only is supplementary, not comprehensive, and is provided at the discretion of the teacher of the summer school course. For courses that offer open review, schedules will vary. All students who register for exams only will receive communication about potential open review later in the summer (final review schedules won't be solidified until early August). If a student is registered for a full course offering, review will be included as part of the course work. If a student is part of the ACE program, a separate review schedule will be provided.
Summer School Attendance:
The BHS Summer School is committed to every student attending every class. Students are required to attend all classes and arrive on time. Attendance is a significant factor in student learning and outcomes because classroom work, general participation, and interaction with students of different views and abilities are integral parts of every curriculum. If an absence does occur due to health or other warranted reasons, arrangements must be made between families and the program for making up required class time and missed assignments. Excessive absences may result in removal from the program.
