In an effort to address the impacts of the pandemic on student learning, Governor Gavin Newson has provided districts across the state a grant called the Extended Learning and Intervention grant. This grant will allow us to provide a more robust summer program that will help address any unfinished learning from fifteen months of distance and hybrid learning. As a learner-centered district that values engagement and meaningful work, we will be introducing Project-Based Learning to our summer program this year. This project-based approach will ensure meaningful integration of content areas, such as reading, writing, technology, and an emphasis on science. The PBL units will be designed around the most important grade-level standards that will support success in the subsequent grades. We will provide 4 weeks of project-based experiential learning and strategic intervention to support the skill development for all students, prioritizing our most vulnerable learners. Along with a project-based approach to summer learning, our programs will provide a learning experience that addresses social and emotional needs. Ultimately, our teachers will create a positive experience to support engagement, connections to school, and a love of learning.
For students who are required to attend Summer School will receiveve an invitation. Selections will be made based on teacher recommendation, trimester 2 data, including F&P/SRI Scores, On-Demand Writing scores, Math Benchmark Scores, Grades, and IEP's requiring Summer School.
All Summer School programs for students will run from July 5th through July 30th. Students and teachers will be in session for 19 days.
There will be part-day options as well as full-day options for summer school this summer.
Option 1- 9:00-12:00
Option 2- 12:30-3:30
The Educational Services staff will be working out a more detailed plan to present to the board before making it public. More information coming soon.
