To help reduce summer learning loss, all students in grades K-5 will receive a summer learning guide that includes grade-level specific content, ideas to engage students in learning without technology, activity suggestions, and a list of local resources. In addition, more than 800 students will participate in summer instructional programs. Students were selected based on academic achievement, attendance, or the need for social-emotional instruction.
Information about summer school, which begins July 6, is available on the school division website. Elementary programs are very close to capacity. Middle and high school staff continue to reach out to families whose students may benefit from focused summer learning.
High school students also have the opportunity to enroll in several courses to accelerate their learning. Taking classes over the summer opens up time in the traditional school year schedule for additional classes. Students interested in accelerated programs should contact their school counselor.
