Students head back to school for summer learning

Just because it's summer doesn't mean the learning has stopped! Hundreds of students are taking a short break from summer relaxing to head back to school.

The number of students participating in our summer programming this year has increased as more families have chosen to take advantage of in-person learning to catch-up after a crazy school year.

Summer Success 

Elementary students are participating in fun, hands-on learning activities as part of our Summer Success program. Summer Success is designed to give elementary students the opportunity to catch up to classmates and better prepare them for the coming school year. In addition to regular classroom teachers, the program also features high school student leaders who have been specially trained to work with kids. The teens helped develop the curriculum and get to experience what it is like to be a teacher.
New this year: Summer Success also includes a class for students in our Spanish Immersion program.

Extended School Year

More than 110 elementary, middle school, high school and 18-21 year-old students are participating in the Extended School Year (ESY) program at Oak-Land Middle School. ESY is designed to support special education students in retaining skills over the summer months. Students participate in fun and engaging activities to practice and generalize their academic and social-emotional skills. This year more than 85% of students who were identified for ESY services chose to participate. Typically, 60-65% of invited students attend ESY each summer.

Credit Recovery

Some of our high school students are taking advantage of Credit Recovery this summer to make up classes and earn credit to ensure that they graduate on time.
