CUSD Credit Recovery Summer School


Carlsbad Unified School District will offer Summer School for credit recovery for CUSD high school students who earned "F" or "D" grades on their first or second semester report cards. Summer School is not for advancement. It is for credit recovery only  to replace "D" or "F" grades. Immediate recovery of credits lost due to failing grades helps students get back on track for high school graduation and college admissions. 


Please see the attached summer school forms in English & Spanish. Complete and submit the form to your student's counselor.


There are only a limited number of courses being offered with limited space in each course. Submitting this form does not guarantee enrollment in the course.
