School board members are expected to revisit a proposal Tuesday that could limit graduation credit accepted by La Cañada Unified for summer school courses taken at alternative sites such as Hillside School and Learning Center.
Supt. Wendy Sinnette said Wednesday afternoon that the board meeting agenda wouldn’t be finalized and made public until 4 p.m. Thursday, but added that she expected the item to appear in the form of a staff recommendation.
In January, then-Supt. Jim Stratton proposed establishing a new district policy requiring a minimum of 6,960 instructional minutes — or four hours a day, five days a week for six weeks— per summer school class, the length of summer courses at many local high schools. The requirement could help to maintain the high academic standards expected in La Cañada, Stratton said.
