                                    WELCOME TO SUMMER SCHOOL 2021!
We hope you will take advantage of the programs available at the district’s elementary, middle, or high
school levels. We offer excellent summer educational programming and the majority of our Summer
School staff are our own district educators who work with our students throughout the regular school
year.

WHO’S ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE
All students who reside within the School District of Janesville’s resident boundaries or are open en-
rolled in the district’s P4J—12th Grade programs are eligible to participate in Summer School.

Non-resident families may enroll their children on a tuition basis. For non-resident fee information,

tial enrollment date for resident students.

FEES
Enrollment for resident students is free. The non-resident fee is $150 per student (not per course).
The non-resident fee is in addition to any courses that require a fee. Example: If your child is a non-
resident and enrolls in Golf: Beginning your account will be assessed the $10 course fee and the $150
non-resident fee for a total amount due of $160.

Non-resident students enrolling in high school credit deficient courses will be assessed the non-
resident district fee and an additional $120 course fee per 0.5 credit earning courses.

Courses that require a fee will state the required amount in the individual course description. Fees are
due no later than June 7th. Payments not received by this date will result in the student being dropped
from the course and unable to attend Summer School.

ATTENDANCE—ELEMENTARY/MIDDLE SCHOOL
Students are encouraged to attend all classes. If your student will be absent, for any reason (including

Students will have 6 weeks to demonstrate proficiency and complete the required coursework in order to
pass the class. Once the student has passed the class, they are no longer required to attend the class. No ex-

will be given. Student work must be completed at school and cannot be completed off-campus.

Website address: http://www.janesville.k12.wi.us

                           Account Creation will begin on Monday, March 29th at 8:00 am.
                           Course Enrollment will begin on Monday, April 5th at 4:30 pm.
This system helps parents manage their child’s summer school enrollment. In this system you will:
  • Create an account - (make a username/password)
  • Add Students
  • Enroll students into summer school courses
  • Obtain a copy of student’s schedule
In order to facilitate this and make things easier for you, we implemented some constraints:
  • We require that you agree to our terms of use
  • We require certain contact information from you
  • We limit classes based on your child's age and/or grade level
  • Enrollments are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once a class fills, it will no longer appear on your
    enrollment screen.

How to use the system
The system is designed for you to "click around." With the exception of adding and dropping classes,
there is really nothing you can do that will "harm" anything. so please feel free to explore all the links and
buttons in the system.
One very important note: When filling out a web-form, the information you have typed is not saved until
you click "Submit." This system has a timeout that lasts about 30 minutes (if you are idle for 30
minutes, it will log you out).

                 Please remember your login and password after you have created it!
The system has a very basic layout. At the top is the Menu bar containing links to Home, Help, Logout,
etc. Once you log into the system, another bar will appear beneath that which indicates your progress
in the system.
Completion Status:
            1 - Parent Info         2 - Student Info       3 - Signups        4 - Verify    5 - Pay      Schedule

As you complete each step, the     will change to   indicating you have completed that step. The last
step (payment) will remain red until the Summer School Office has received and recorded your pay-
ment. If you have questions, please contact the Summer School Office at 608-743-5042.

If, at any point, you do something that would make your progress incomplete (such as adding another
student) these indicators should turn red again. However, there are some circumstances they may not,
such as you cannot find any courses for one of your students, but you wish to finalize your registration.
If you cannot find any courses for one of your students, this is okay! Just click onto Step 4 to verify what
you have selected. If all looks good, click the "Continue to Payment" link that appears and this will tell
the system that you are satisfied with your current selections.
