Summer School Regulations

We cannot make exceptions to the rules of conduct or attendance and must enforce the rules strictly, quickly, and consistently to maintain an atmosphere conducive to learning.

Attendance

To report an absence, please contact the Glenbrook South Attendance Office at (847) 486-4632.


One day of summer school is equivalent to one week of classroom instruction. Students are expected to arrive on time and attend all class sessions, including the final exam date. Tardiness up to fifteen minutes will be considered a tardy; after fifteen minutes will be considered an absence. Students tardy under fifteen minutes on two occasions will count as an absence. If a student is absent more than two class sessions, they will be dropped from the course with the grade of “WF”, and no refund will be provided.


Students may not miss the final exam without prior approval from the Summer School Principal. Should a student miss the final, it will count towards the absence maximum for the course.

Student Conduct

During the summer, we expect the same behavior as is expected during the school year.  Inappropriate behavior is not tolerated.  Student course enrollments will be canceled and no refund will be provided for behavior that is out of compliance with the current versions of Board Policy and Student Rights and Responsibilities documents located on the District website.
