HIGH SCHOOL INFORMATION
Dear IUSD Parents,
IUSD will have two summer opportunities; The On-Site summer program held at Irvine High School and the “Blended” program, where students do much of their work on-line guided by teachers and attend weekly or bi-weekly (HS Math Bridge and Chemistry) meetings at San Joaquin for in-class activity, discussions, and assessment. Both programs will commence on June 11 and go through July 24 with July 3-5 off for the Independence Day Holiday.
- Registration for course requests for both programs requires two steps: on-line AND in-person. The registration for On-Site summer school will be separate from blended learning and both program course catalogs and course request links can be found below. A “Course Request and Acknowledgment Form” will need to be submitted in-person at one of the registration sites. Dates, locations, and times will be posted in the course catalog on page 5 starting on March 20. In-person registration will start after the Spring Break holiday (April 9 – April 26).
- If students wish to take a "Blended" course and an "On-Site" course, that is fine. Students are only allowed two courses, unless a third course is Drivers' Education. Students must complete the course requests and print the confirmation forms for each program and submit each, separately in-person.
As in summers past, The Irvine Unified School District Summer School program operates under a donation model. While some districts have opted to cut their summer programs due to budget restraints, the Irvine Unified School District is seeking to preserve this valuable opportunity by asking for donations from participating families. The Summer School program presents an incredible opportunity for our students, whether they’re pursuing remediation, enrichment or the chance to get ahead. As such, we’re hoping our funding model is sufficient enough to run all of our course offerings and satisfy the needs of every family.
The Irvine Public Schools Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports Irvine schools, is also running enrichment camps. Although there is a cost to these courses, students can benefit from classes such as ACT/SAT prep to culinary arts and from Jump Start Latin and Math to Music History and Appreciation.
