Summer School Credit Recovery Options
This summer PiM is offering the option for students to remediate required academic courses via PLATO, which is a self-directed online course option. The deadline to register for this option is May 17th, 2024. Students will have a supervising teacher, but it is largely independent. Students who find success through PLATO are self-motivated, organized, and comfortable with technology. If you believe your student can find success without a content area teacher this may be a good option for you. Limit of two credits. PiM’s summer school session runs from June 10 to July 26, 2024.
If you would like to go through a different summer school program, please reach out to Ms. Klein at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Substance Use & Abuse Support at PiM
PiM has a partnership with Austin Hatch, MA, LADC and Austin Wick, MA, LADC-S of PhaseZero Recovery Services to support students and families who may be dealing with substance abuse/addiction both during the school day and outside of the school day. Support services may include chemical dependency assessments, individual/group therapy, and sober support. Although PiM supports family engagement in all areas of a young person’s life, MN Statute 42 CFR Part 2 states that minors do not need parent permission to access these services, and that the clinicians may not share information regarding their sessions with anyone, including parents and PiM staff and teachers. Only if a client has signed a Release of Information will they share any information regarding recommendations, case plans or progress.
Clinicians from PhaseZero are on site weekly on Thursdays from 8:00-11:00am. Students and parents may access these services by contacting PhaseZero Recovery Services directly. You may also contact PiM’s School Counselor, School Social Worker, or our Director of Student Life for a referral. All services are confidential between you and the PhaseZero Recovery Services team.

Post Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) Information
Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) is a program that allows 10th-, 11th- and 12th-grade students to earn both high school and college credit while still in high school, through enrollment in and successful completion of college nonsectarian courses at eligible participating postsecondary institutions. Most PSEO courses are offered on the campus of the postsecondary institution; some courses are offered online. Each participating college or university sets its own admissions requirements for enrollment into the PSEO courses. Eleventh and 12th-grade students may take PSEO courses on a full- or part-time basis; 10th graders are eligible to enroll in PSEO on a more limited basis (see note below). Students must meet the PSEO residency and eligibility requirements and abide by participation limits specified in Minnesota Statutes, section 124D.09. If a school district determines a pupil is not on track to graduate, she/he may continue to participate in PSEO on a term by term basis.
By March 1 of each year, or three weeks prior to the date a student registers for courses for the following school year (whichever is earlier), schools must provide PSEO information to all students in grades 8-11 and their families. To assist the district in planning, a student must inform the district by May 30 of each year of their intent to enroll in postsecondary courses during the following school year.
There is no charge to PSEO students for tuition, books or fees for items that are required to participate in a course; however, students may incur fees for equipment that becomes their property when the course or program is completed, textbooks that are not returned to the postsecondary institution according to their policies, or for tuition costs if they do not notify the district by May 30 and the district does not waive this date requirement.
Funds are available to help pay transportation expenses for qualifying students to participate in PSEO courses on college campuses. For more information on these funds, access the PSEO Mileage Reimbursement Program Instructions.
Enrolling in a PSEO course does not prohibit a student from participating in activities sponsored by the high school.
School districts must allow a PSEO student reasonable access to the high school building, computers and/or other technology resources during regular school hours to participate in PSEO courses, whether on-line or on campus.
Each year, districts must publish their grade-weighting policy on their website, including a list of courses for which students can earn weighted grades.
All courses taken through the PSEO program must meet graduation requirements. Districts must transcript credits earned in PSEO by a ratio prescribed in statute. Districts have the authority to decide which subject area and standards the PSEO course meets. If there is a dispute between the district and the student regarding the number of credits granted for a particular course, the student may appeal the board’s decision to the commissioner. The commissioner’s decision regarding the number of credits will be final.
Postsecondary institutions are required to allow PSEO students to enroll in online courses consistent with the institution’s policy regarding postsecondary student enrollment in online courses.
Tenth-grade students may initially enroll in one Career and Technical Education (CTE) PSEO course if they receive a reading proficiency score of “meets” or “exceeds” on the 8th grade MCA. If 10th graders taking a CTE PSEO course earn at least a grade C in that class, they may take additional postsecondary courses. If the student did not take the MCA in 8th-grade, another reading assessment accepted by the enrolling postsecondary institution can be substituted. For students with disabilities, there is an alternative option to demonstrate reading proficiency.
