Original Credit Eligibility

Students must have an impacted schedule (AVID, drama, band, leadership, etc.) the following year AND a 3.0 semester grade-point average in order to to be eligible for summer school. NOTE ABOUT SOCIAL SCIENCE CLASSES: Students are allowed to take only ONE summer social science course for original credit during their four years of high school. For example, if a student took World History for original credit last summer, he/she WILL NOT be able to take US History for original credit this summer. This rule does not apply to students that need to retake a social science class for credit recovery (see Credit Recover Eligibility requirements below).

Credit Recovery Eligibility

Students must be enrolled at a Clovis Unified school, must need to repeat a course (due to a "D" or "F" grade), and/or be deficient in credits/required courses for graduation in order to be eligible for summer school.

Summer School Bus Schedule

Clovis Unified provides bus transportation for students taking face-to-face classes only!
