Welcome to Summer School 2017!
Summer school at Walnut High School is comprised of three separate programs, each of which has its guidelines and requirements. Programs offered are WVUSD, Mt. SAC, and Dedicated to Learning.
The WVUSD program is designed to meet the basic graduation requirements like English or history, develop skills for English language learners and support students with Individual Education Plans. This program is free of charge and the only program run exclusively by WHS and WVUSD. Students in need of making up a course must meet with their GLC as enrollment in most of these courses will be by GLC approval only.
The Mt. SAC program is offered through the college on our campus. The teachers are WVUSD teachers but the courses offered are funded by Mt. SAC. This program allows students to accelerate or make up classes. This program is free of charge. However, because a college runs these courses, Mt. SAC requires students to give their Social Security numbers. This is NOT a WVUSD requirement; it is strictly a Mt. SAC requirement. Students will have the opportunity to apply for a lottery for whatever class they are interested in taking.
The Dedicated to Learning (D2L) program is tuition based program run by an independent company on our campus. This program is designed for students interested in supplementing their traditional school year with additional coursework. D2L is a fully accredited program running courses to provide area students with opportunities for learning and advancement. For more information, please visit their website at www.dedicated2learning.org
