How much does Summer School cost?

LCFEF Summer School tuition is dependent upon the costs of providing these courses. As our costs change, tuition changes. The costs for 2023 will be determined in early 2023 as we know more about the costs of providing this service for our community. Summer School sessions require a minimum of 15 students per class in order for the course to operate. If any course has insufficient enrollment numbers by mid-May 2023, the course will be canceled and tuition (not including credit card fees) will be refunded.

Who can enroll in LCFEF Summer School?

High school classes are available to ALL students currently in grades 8-12 who meet any necessary prerequisites for the desired course or who need to recover credit for a “D” or “F” grade. Students from outside of LCUSD will need to complete a Credit Verification form and a Transcript Request form as part of their registration process.

 

9/10 High School English prep is an enrichment course open to students entering 9th and 10th grades in fall.

 

Middle school classes are available to students entering 7th or 8th grade in the following school year.

Why is there a materials fee for some classes?

Some classes require the purchase of consumable materials. These courses include Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Spanish 1A, Spanish 1, cooking and ceramics.

How does a student register for Summer School?

Summer School registration may be completed online or by mailing completed forms and a check to the LCFEF Office (4490 Cornishon Avenue, Room 211, La Canada, CA 91011).

 

Courses will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. In the event that multiple sections are offered, students will be assigned randomly to a section. Classes which meet full capacity will become wait list only and will be posted on the website; we encourage families to complete the application process as soon as they can. Classes which do not meet the required minimum enrollment of 15 students will be canceled at the discretion of the LCFEF Summer School Board. Parents of the students enrolled in those classes will be notified by mid May.

When can a student register for Summer School?

Registration for 2023 will open in January/February of 2023. All fees for LCFEF classes must be paid in full at the time of registration. Please consult our refund policy prior to making payment.

 

A late registration fee of $50 will apply starting at 5:00pm on May 27, 2023 and goes up to $100 starting on June 3, 2023.

When will a student receive a Summer School class schedule?

Room and teacher assignments will be e-mailed the week of June 5, 2023.

Where can a student find his/her student ID#?

The student’s LCHS ID# can be found on his/her student ID card or by asking the counseling office. For out of district students, ID#s are not required.

Is there registration on the first day of Summer School?

There will be a late registration fee of $100 beginning June 3, 2023. Students may register in person only on the first day of summer school at La Cañada High School. Please note that BOTH the student and the parent must be present for this registration. At this time, students may register for any open seats left in Summer School. Except in an emergency, it is NOT advisable to wait for this registration.

What is the LCFEF Refund Policy?

Tuition minus a $100.00 handling fee, will be returned for any reason, providing the request is made prior to 5:00 pm on, May 15, 2023. Requests may be made via email to ssclerk@lcfef.org.

 

The LCFEF Board of Directors will consider a 50% refund (minus a $100.00 handling fee) for a verified death in the family, or a verified student illness or injury (doctor’s note required) which precludes a student from attending or continuing Summer School, providing the request is made prior to the first day of Summer School.

 

NO REFUNDS FOR ANY REASON WILL BE GIVEN OR CONSIDERED OUTSIDE OF THIS POLICY.

What is the attendance policy for Summer School?

There are no excused absences in Summer School for credit courses. When enrolled in a full year course, students are not allowed more than three (3) days of absence and no more than two (2) days in any one semester. For semester classes students are not allowed more than one and a half days (1.5) of absence in each semester. Students who exceed these absences will be dropped from the class.

 

Two tardies constitute one half-day absence. If a student is not in their seat when the bell rings, the student will be considered tardy. It is possible to receive more than one tardy per day (at the beginning of school and/or after breaks). If a student is more than fifteen (15) minutes late to class, the student will be considered absent one half-day.

 

Students enrolled in enrichment courses are encouraged to attend classes daily. Many of these courses are project-based and students will fall behind their peers impacting the overall class experience for themselves and those around them. Extended absences will be handled on a case-by-case basis. Students with excessive absences may be dropped from the class. There are no grades for enrichment courses, but teachers will communicate weekly with parents indicating student progress.
