Traditional Summer School 2022

  • Students who need additional support in approaching benchmarks for reading proficiency will take part in the traditional summer school program. Data from interventions and assessments given throughout the school year will help identify students that would benefit the most from the program. District 2 teachers teach the summer program. They focus on fluency, phonics and comprehension to help students become proficient readers at their grade level. Students will also take part in a writer’s workshop to develop their skills as authors. Students learn essential skills in math, as well, to support their success at the next grade level.

    Students must show regular attendance (no more than three absences) and successfully complete their summer work to be considered for promotion.

    Summer school registration is based on teacher recommendation. Other students may be invited to attend the program as space allows. If a student is recommended for summer school, the student needs to attend summer school instead of STEM or JumpStart.
