(June 17, 2014) Ichabod Crane High School does not offer summer school classes. In addition, August Regents exams will NOT be given at Ichabod Crane High School this year. However, the high school's Counseling Office provides a list of local summer school offerings. There will be a fee for each program as determined by the school district/college offering the summer program. Students/parents are responsible for registration and transportation. If you have any questions, counselors will be available June 30-July 3.
To be eligible for a remedial summer school program, a student must have achieved a minimum grade point average of 50% in the course.
Due to New York State regulations regarding summer school credit, the summer school final average will be calculated using a combination of the academic year average and the summer school average. The school academic year average will count for 25% of the final summer school grade. The summer school average will count for 75% of the final summer school grade. It is very important that the student keep this in mind when considering the summer school option.
Download the summer options here. Please note this list is tentative as we are still waiting for other schools to confirm their offerings.

The Board of Education has approved a the Attendance Policy to begin in September. Students, who miss 24 class days in a full-year class and 12 days in the semester class, may lose credit. Please review the Attendance Policy. For questions, please contact the main office. This policy is reviewed with all students during the first week of school.
All students are required to complete 22 units of credit to graduate. No student is considered to be an official member of a class or in a grade homeroom without having earned the minimum number of credits. All seniors are required to be enrolled in a minimum of five classes each semester.
Today’s clothing styles can present parents with a challenge in purchasing what is deemed appropriate. However, it is important to maintain a school environment that is proper and comfortable for all of the children and adults in the building. The dress code is included in the Code of Conduct, which students receive on the first day of school.
If at any time you have questions about the High School programs, or your child’s progress, please contact us.
Parking privileges are available only to juniors and seniors who have agreed to adhere to the stipulations of our student parking agreement, and they must also attend the driving seminar. The seminar is given only a few times each year. Students do not have to have their permit or license to attend the seminar. If your student does not have their license at this time but may obtain one during the school year, they should attend the seminar, so they don’t miss out.
If your student is a junior or senior, please submit the Parking PermitApplication.. Please review the rules carefully with your child. It is important that this information is thoroughly understood by all. We never want to be in the position of a student or his/her family having to shoulder the financial burden of a vehicle being towed from school property.
Ichabod Crane is a closed campus. In accordance with our conduct code, students may not be excused on a regular basis during lunches and study halls. Our concern for students leaving is twofold. First, there is the issue of safety in terms of students on the roads in cars. They often take with them other students who may or may not be excused. Second and of equal importance, are the increasing numbers of students who are returning late or not at all for their scheduled classes. Students who leave without permission will face loss of parking privileges and/or assignment of demerits.
