Welcome to Summer School 2021!

We are looking forward to seeing our Eagles! Our goal is to provide a wonderful learning experience for our students who demonstrated instructional learning needs in ELAR or math during the 2020-2021 school year. Your child's previous grades and assessment results will be utilized to develop targeted interventions to support instructional success.

Food service and transportation are not available during summer school.

We encourage you to bring your child to CISD's summer school program! Please reach out to your child's campus if you have any questions.

It is the policy of CISD to avoid dismissing students from the summer school program. However, it is necessary to enforce program rules and regulations fairly and consistently. Disregard for any for the CISD Student Code of Conduct including dress code may result in the student's immediate dismissal from the program.

Major violations are grounds for immediate dismissal. Major violations include fighting, cheating, exhibiting disrespectful behavior toward staff and/or students, possession or use of drugs or alcohol, damage to school property, and any behavior that harms the safety of any student or the integrity of the program.

All final disciplinary decisions are at the discretion of campus administrators.
