Fox Valley Summer School Consortium General Guidelines

In an effort to provide students with learning opportunities, the Fox Valley Summer School Consortium was formed in an ongoing effort by the twelve involved school districts to offer students viable educational opportunities at any of the eleven participating districts during the summer months.  The districts involved in the Fox Valley Summer School Consortium are:  Appleton, Brillion, Freedom, Hilbert, Hortonville, Kaukauna, Kimberly, Little Chute, Menasha, Neenah, and Shiocton.

  1. All students from the consortium school districts are eligible to attend classes. Students who have graduated, non-consortium students and adults may attend classes by paying a fee that will cover the cost of the class.
  2. If the same course if offered in more than one district, the student is expected to take the course in their home district.
  3. Summer School Enrollment Policy for Students Attending Classes in Other Districts: Any parent wishing to enroll a child for a summer school class that is OUTSIDE of their home school district should return a completed registration form to the SCHOOL THEIR CHILD PRESENTLY ATTENDS. This registration form shall be signed by a counselor/principal from the student's school, the counselor/principal shall check that all recorded information is accurate and complete, and then forward the registration form to the Director of Summer School of the student's home district. The Director of Summer School may sign to grant approval for the class(es), retains a copy of the registration form for their records, and forwards the approved registration form to the Director of Summer School of the school district where the class is being held. The Director of Summer School has the discretion of granting or rejecting approval for students taking a class in another district.
  4. Enrollment Policy for Statewide Open Enrollment Students: Students participating in open enrollment should consider their school district of attendance as their home school district and should indicate this on the registration form.
  5. Enrollment Policy for Home School Students: Home school students participating in summer school should consider their school district of attendance as their home school district and should indicate this on the registration form.
  6. Registration procedures and deadlines do vary. Please check with each individual school district.
  7. Courses may be canceled due to insufficient enrollment or lack of staff. If a course is canceled, parents will be notified.
  8. Grade indicators refer to the grade the student will be in during the upcoming school year.
  9. Please check the course descriptions for exact times, dates, and locations - as class schedules do vary.
  10. Transportation costs for field trips will be the responsibility of the student.
  11. Explanation of types of credit: Secondary level only. Philosophy and practice concerning the type of credit is varied within the Fox Valley Summer School Consortium. Students need to check with their home school district counselor or summer school coordinator to obtain the appropriate information regarding the earning of secondary credit for either credit deficient or gifted and talented consortium courses.
  12. Attendance policies vary throughout the districts. Credit deficient courses have strict attendance expectations.
  13. Credits take outside of the district will be accepted only with prior written approval from the home school district. Districts need to submit grade reports to each appropriate summer school coordinator. The grade reports should be sent to the home school district and student one week following the completion of the summer school session.
