Summer School/ Credit Recovery Summer School

posted May 18, 2017, 6:21 AM by Robert L Patton High School

Summer School

If your child made a 1 or 2 on the Biology or Math I EOC in the Fall Semester or if they make a 1 or 2 in the upcoming testing season, they are eligible to attend a week long summer program at PHS.  It will be June 12-16.  The students will receive tutoring and retake the exam on June 16.  If they do better on the test, we can then recalculate their final grade.  I highly encourage our Math I and Biology students to take advantage of this opportunity to better your grade.  If you already know that you want your child to attend (Fall Semester students) please contact Anne Cansler at 433-3000 and she will put your child on the list to attend.  If your child made a 3, 4, or 5 they are not eligible to attend.

Credit Recovery Summer School

Credit Recovery Summer School will be held at Draughn High School.  If your child fails a required course for graduation ex: English, Math, Science, Social Studies, then they may opt to attend summer school.  Please contact your child's guidance counselor if you want them to attend.

What do administrators have to say?

"VirtualJobShadow.com allows students to explore career options through the eyes of industry experts without leaving their classrooms or homes. Whether they are in 6th grade just learning about various careers or in high school truly investigating and researching careers, this tool helps them see the day-to-day lives of actual company employees and highlights not only their daily tasks, but what type of skills they use and their pathways to achieving their careers. The tools puts a personal touch and actually allows students to understand the careers better.

Students can also watch the videos at home with their parents/guardians and have key conversations around topics such as: Would I like a career like this? What type of post-secondary school would I like to attend? Do I need to earn an industry credential in high school? What types of classes do I need to take in high school to prepare me for this career?”

- Crystal Cheek   Director of Career Technical Education, Buncombe County Schools, Asheville NC
