4. Tuition and Fees:

District 201 offers Summer School as a service to students who reside in District 201. Students outside District 201 are not eligible for Summer School.

Tuition and fees will be assessed (to ALL summer school students) as economically as possible without being a financial burden to the district. Tuition and book rental for these courses will be $125 per 1/2 unit course.  Tuition payment is collected at registration. Additional fees are necessary for some courses to cover the cost of supplies, materials, and workbooks.


  • Cash
  • Credit/Debit Cards
  • Check (only during Pre-Registration – may be mailed in)
  • Tuition Assistance Waiver… For information contact Mr. Hill on the East Campus 222-3745 and Dr. Bass on the West Campus 222-7675.

Registered students are to pick up books with their class on Monday, June 10, and return them to the bookstore at the end of summer school.

5. Choosing Courses:

Students may pre-register this year.  See your counselor for information.  The registration process is not complete until payment has been received. Students that do not pre-register must register June 6 & 7 at East.  Although counselors from East and West will be at the June 5 & 6 registration, students desiring summer school should check with their counselors before the end of the regular school year. Students should get a signed approval form from a counselor to make sure they’re enrolling in suitable courses. A student will not receive credit if he takes a course he has already passed during the regular school year or during a previous summer school session. Eighth-grade students can choose only from the following courses:  Health, Technology Essentials, or PE.

6. Enrollment and Attendance:

  • a. A student may enroll in one or two courses.
  • b. A student may enroll in a course for “audit,” but credit will not be given. This intent should be indicated when the student registers. Tuition is charged for courses which are audited.
  • c. Because summer school consists of only 24 meetings per course, it will be impossible for a student to “miss” class and receive credit for a course. Allowances may be made for excused absences which include illness or death in the immediate family. These, however, will be excused only upon presentation of a note to the teacher from either parent explaining the absences. Of course, all work missed as the result of an excused absence must be made up.
  • Students will be dropped from class as a result of an accumulation of any absences exceeding three. Keep in mind that three tardies to any one class will count as equivalent to one absence to that class.  Excused absences still count toward the limit of three absences. Also, any student(s) that create or participate in campus disruptions will be dropped from summer school with no credit. In addition to the loss of credit, no refund will be given to students dismissed for non-attendance or disciplinary reasons.
  • d.  Those who plan to go on vacation between June 10th and July 18th should not sign up for summer school.
  • e. The District 201 Dress Code will be in place during summer school. If you need information on the dress code, please refer to the district website.
  • f. Each student must present a copy of his schedule form for admission to each class. Schedules are available the first day of summer school.

7. Drivers Education:

Classes will be conducted on the West campus on June 10th through July 18th. Students must sign up before the end of the regular school year and be prepared to pay the required $125 fee. Each campus will have registration materials available by April 1. Older students register first, but spaces are available on a first come basis. Students who have not registered for Summer Driver Education in advance will be placed on a waiting list. Students on waiting lists will be contacted when spaces become available. See Mr. Geluck at Belleville East or Mr. Baltz at Belleville West for a waiting list priority.

Pre-registered Drivers Education students need not to appear for registration on June 5th & 6th-, Each student should arrive on campus at the assigned time of the first day of class, June 10th, and have their learner’s permits by the first day of school. Those attending classes will meet in the cafeteria/commons the first day.

8. Special Education

Students wishing to enroll in cross-categorical special education classes should refer to #9, below.

9. Alternative Education/Individualized Education
