    Students missing more than 2 days will earn a failing grade, this includes both excused and unexcused absences.

    Do the summer school grades appear on the high school transcript?

    Yes, according to WAC 392-415-070 any high school classes attempted must be recorded on a student’s transcript. The transcript indicates that students receive 0.5 elective or CTE credit for each summer school session. Cosmetology students earn 2.0 elective or CTE credit for the entire summer session. Credits will be sent to the student’s home high school registrar in September.

    What time do the Cosmetology summer classes run?

    The Cosmetology sites operate on a different schedule. Please contact them directly for information. Also, the Cosmetology application requires an on-line summer school application as well as a school-year application (confirmed by HS counselor) in order to continue the course into the fall.
