Summer School Math

We are about to wrap up our Summer School Credit Recovery program, in which I served as the lead administrator.  I could not resist to perform some of my own summer school mathematics.

Each student is required to attend all 10 days of Summer School Credit Recovery.  This is a requirement of six hours per day (8:00 am - 2:30 pm, w/ a 30-minute lunch).

The 60 hour requirement = 1 Course (1 Credit) recovered

One regular semester = 90 Instructional Days

90 days / 10 days needed per course = 9 , so nine Credits could be earned during a regular semester.

Therefore, 18 Credits could be earned in one school year (Two semesters).

A student could earn 27 Credits in three regular semesters.

Adding one Summer School credit, a student could earn 28 Credits in a year-and-a-half.

Twenty-eight Credits are required for Graduation in my district.

Twenty-eight Credits could be completed in three semesters plus one Summer School session.

4 > 1.5
