eLearning (Online)  May 22, 2015
Face-to-Face  June 16, 2015
GENERAL GUIDELINES
The purpose of summer school is to enrich the education of students and to permit students to earn credits needed for
graduation or promotion. Specifically, summer school programs afford students the opportunity to take repeat courses to
meet deficiencies, to enroll in required courses for advancement, and to enroll in elective courses for enrichment.
The general guidelines for summer school are as follows:
 Credit for repeated work will be granted on the same basis as that for new work. A student may receive a unit credit
for a course only once.
 Courses shall be structured to require completion of all course requirements normally taught over a minimum of 140
clock hours of classroom instruction per unit of credit.
 With principal’s approval, students may be allowed to enroll in up to two repeat or eLearning classes, or combination
thereof. Priority will be given to students enrolling in courses required for graduation or promotion.
HANOVER eLEARNING
Hanover eLearning is available to resident and non-resident students during the 2015 summer session in the form of Fully
Online and Blended Learning classes as defined below:

Fully Online courses = instruction is delivered solely online

Blended Learning courses = instruction is delivered both online and by face-to-face class sessions
Students should discuss eLearning with their school counselor and parents to ensure that their personality and work habits
translate to success in the eLearning environment. Successful eLearning students are self-directed and independent learners,
actively participate in all online activities, effectively manage their time to meet class deadlines, have strong reading
comprehension skills, and are proficient with the use of technology.
Students should consider the following questions prior to registering for an eLearning course:
1. Am I self-motivated and disciplined? Students should be prepared to devote as much time to the eLearning course as
would be expected in a face-to-face classroom course.
2. Am I receptive to information through written or visual context as opposed to spoken communication with an instructor?
