FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Temecula Education Foundation Sponsors 11th year of High School Summer Classes
Online Registration Opens May 18; Students Have Until May 31 to Sign Up for Modified High School Acceleration Classes
April 27, 2020 – TEMECULA – The Temecula Education Foundation (TEF), a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to supporting students in the Temecula Valley Unified School District (TVUSD), is pleased to announce a limited list of virtual courses for Summer 2020 high school acceleration will be available online at http://temeculaeducationfoundation.org/. Online registration opens May 18 and closes May 31. There are no refunds for any courses after June 5. Classes will be held online only through TVUSD’s virtual platform.
These TEF-sponsored for-credit courses offer high school students an opportunity to get a head start on their 2020-21 high school classes. Fee-based acceleration classes are sponsored by TEF, with the Temecula Valley Unified School District (TVUSD) serving as the accreditation body. TEF is pleased to continue this collaboration with TVUSD to provide this opportunity for students, although limited during this time of campus closures due to COVID-19.
The virtual “for-credit” classes being offered this summer are Geometry, Spanish 1 & 2, and, new this summer, Art 1. All for-credit classes will meet University of California “A-G” entrance requirements. Additionally, to help give students an advantage before tackling regular school-year classes, 2-week workshops (for practice only; no credit!) will be offered in Pre-AP/IB Chemistry and Algebra 1. The Pre-Algebra 1 Boot Camp is designed to help students transition from middle to high school by reviewing and helping them understand basic algebraic concepts and standards.
Courses will be held ONLINE ONLY, Monday-Friday starting June 15 and concluding on July 10 (4 weeks). There will be no classes held on July 3rd to observe the Independence Day holiday. Classes are intended for students within the TVUSD boundaries; incoming TVUSD seniors and juniors will be given priority. Students from other districts will only be allowed to register if there is availability at the end of registration. Out-of-district students must get approval from their home schools prior to registering. Classes are subject to change based on lack of enrollment and/or teacher availability. Lastly, accelerated, for-credit courses, while UC-approved, may not meet NCAA eligibility requirements, please check with your counselor! A few need-based scholarships will also be made available through an application process, please visit our website for details.
TEF accelerated summer courses should not be confused with TVUSD high school credit recovery or remediation. Information on those courses is available from each high school’s counseling department and on the TVUSD website at https://www.tvusd.k12.ca.us/.
