What is Summer School 2.0?

BHEF HIGH SCHOOL SUMMER ACADEMY: HOME LEARNING & BLENDED LEARNING
 
The BHEF Summer Academy is excited to offer Summer School 2.0! In light of recent events, this year’s High School Summer Academy will be conducted entirely online using either Home Learning or Blended Learning. Students will be emailed instructions for virtual class meetings prior to the start of summer courses.
 
Home Learning utilizes Google Classroom as the curriculum delivery platform to engage students using a variety of instructional strategies, such as live virtual face-to-face learning (google hangout/meet/zoom), live instruction using slides, prerecorded videos of lessons, workbook time, independent work, project work, group work, online resources (YouTube/Khan Academy/other video platforms), etc. These courses will be taught by a certified BHUSD teacher.  
 
Semester 1        9:00 am – 2:00 pm, 12 days, June 8 – 23, Monday - Friday
Semester 2        9:00 am – 2:00 pm, 12 days, June 24 – July 10, Monday – Friday (No class July 3) 
 
Students must virtually attend the first and last day of class and follow any policy or terms outlined in their instructor’s syllabus. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS. Students can utilize BHUSD laptops. Students are responsible for arranging their own internet access in order to access Home Learning courses. Home Learning courses are open to BHUSD AND Out-of-District Students. 
 
Blended Learning is an instructional strategy in which students work independently while under the supervision of a certificated teacher. Students will follow the District's adopted curriculum which meets the District's graduation requirements. Blended Learning offers flexibility to meet individual student needs, interests, and styles of learning. Instruction will be delivered through a mixture of technology and virtual face-to-face instruction. Students are required to virtually attend school on the first day of the semester at 9:00 am, schedule and virtually meet with their instructor regularly during the semester according to the teacher’s requirements to monitor progress, answer questions and support learning, and must virtually attend on the last day of the semester to take the final exam. The online curriculum of these courses will be delivered through  platforms such as APEX Learning or UC Scout (using Canvas). In the event that a student needs extra support, a subject-specific teacher will hold virtual office hours for tutoring weekly. 
 
Students need to be prepared on the first day of each semester to schedule individual meetings with their teacher that will take place during each semester in which they are enrolled, and virtually attend school on the last day of the semester to take the final exam. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS. Should a student fail to meet with his/her teacher, the student will fail the course.  
 
Students may select a single semester for credit recovery. Blended Learning courses are available to BHUSD Students ONLY.  Students may utilize BHUSD laptops or may use their own. Students are responsible for arranging their own internet access in order to access Blended Learning courses.  
 
Semester 1        June 8 – June 23, virtual meeting days & times vary by course
Semester 2        June 24 – July 10, virtual meeting days & times vary by course
