Summer Programs

2021 Summer Program

Overview

In alignment with our Academic Well-Being & Recovery Plan, we will be providing opportunities for students in grades PreK-12 this summer who have been identified as having the highest academic needs. These students include those at Fryelands Elementary, Frank Wagner Elementary, Park Place Middle School, Monroe High School and Leaders in Learning, who meet one of the following criteria:

  • Students who currently are receiving special education services and have demonstrated a need for recovery services
  • Students who are below grade level standards in core content academic areas (reading, writing, math)
  • High school students who are at risk of not graduating on time

If there is additional capacity, we will offer summer learning opportunities to more students district-wide. This program will be a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) based program, and engage students in learning through STEM activities, in addition to content focused learning (reading, writing, math).  We will engage our students in an exciting program structured around relational, social-emotional learning (SEL) and team building activities, academic learning and supports, and STEM based activities. Our high school students will have the opportunity to complete credit recovery for the available courses.
