General Guidelines for Summer School

The purpose of Summer School is to enrich the education of students and to permit students to earn credits needed for graduation or promotion. Specifically, Summer School programs afford students the opportunity to take repeat courses to meet deficiencies, to enroll in required courses for advancement, and to enroll in elective courses for enrichment.

The general guidelines for Summer School are as follows:

1.   Credit for repeated work will be granted on the same basis as that for new work. A student may receive a unit credit for a course only once.

2.   Courses which students are studying for the first time shall be structured to require completion of all course requirements normally taught over a minimum of 140 clock hours of classroom instruction per unit of credit.

3.   With approval of the principal, students may be allowed to enroll in up to two repeat or Hanover eLearning subjects, or combination thereof. Priority will be given to students who are enrolling in subjects required for graduation or promotion.

Online World Languages

For the first time, Hanover Schools is pleased to offer French 1 and Spanish 1
online for summer school.  These two courses will fulfill the requirements for Carnegie credit bearing classes as currently taught in Hanover’s secondary schools.  This course is for rising 7th graders and older.   Enroll soon; the deadline is May 27!   Click HERE for a registration form or contact your school counselor with questions.

Hanover eLearning

Hanover eLearning is available to resident and non-resident students during the 2016 summer session in the form of Fully Online and Blended Learning classes as defined below:

·         -  Fully Online courses = instruction is delivered
solely online

·    - Blended Learning courses = instruction is delivered both online and by face-to-face class sessions

Students should discuss eLearning with their school counselor and parents to ensure that their personality and work habits translate to success in the eLearning environment.  Successful eLearning students are self-directed and independent learners, actively participate in all online activities, effectively manage their time to meet class deadlines, have strong reading comprehension skills, and are proficient with the use of technology.

Students should consider the following questions prior to registering for an eLearning course:

1.       Am I self-motivated and disciplined?  Students should be prepared to devote as much time to the eLearning course as would be expected in a face-to-face classroom course.

2.       Am I receptive to information through written or visual context as opposed to spoken communication with an instructor?
