In compliance with COVID-19 health guidelines, WJCC Schools will offer modified summer programs June 30 – August 4. Summer school will focus on virtual learning opportunities for high school students to support credit recovery and accelerated learning. Information and registration details are listed below along with available at-home resources for elementary and middle school students.
Suggested summer engagement resources for elementary school students will be mailed home with report cards. Activities include a list of suggested book titles, read-aloud events by WJCC teachers, math, science, journaling, and physical movement. Families can also access these resources by visiting teacher webpages in StudentVUE.
Summer Engagement Activities
Middle School remediation will take place at the beginning of next school year when classes resume. In the meantime, students can access previously released lessons and activities for summer practice on their teachers’ pages in StudentVUE.
Summer Recovery Program:
To provide students in grades 9-12 the opportunity to regain a credit for a course for which they did not pass with proficiency. Credit Recovery courses are taught by WJCC teacher facilitators through Edmentum and Microsoft Teams. Credit Recovery is an online course for students who have completed the seat hours of a course and must repeat the course. Parents who wish to enroll their child in Credit Recovery must fill out the online registration form.
