The La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation unanimously voted to continue with its plan to host a summer school program Thursday night, despite the La Cañada Unified School District Governing Board's decision not to set a standard for instructional minutes until 2012 on Jan. 11.
The Educational Foundation began researching the possibility of starting a fee-based summer school program for high school students more than a year ago. The Foundation entered into a contract with LCUSD on Sept. 28 to lease the district's facilities and curriculum materials. Any profit from the Foundation's summer school goes directly to the district.
The Foundation's plan is to model its summer school after La Cañada High's previous program, and adopt the district's curriculum and 6,960-minute courses.
