How much will an online summer school class cost?

The cost of an online course is the same as a face-to-face summer school course: $300. Students who have a completed free/reduced meal form on file and have been determined eligible for reduced price or free meals during the regular school year are eligible to receive reduced summer school tuition in all high school summer programs except enrichment programs. Parents or guardians who would like the school to determine their childís eligibility for free and reduced tuition must sign the release section of the summer school registration form. This will permit school officials to access the necessary information to award the tuition benefit. The chart below lists the tuition rates for each level of meal status qualification. Please note: no meals are served during summer school.

NOTE: Free/reduced meal applications must be filed at the studentís home school by the last day of the 2016-17 school year.
