We are hosting a boot camp-style summer school session this June. The boot camp would be for the HS English and Math content areas. The plan is to run the summer school 3.5 hours a day, three days a week - Tuesday - Thursday. The dates would be June 8, 9, 10 and 15, 16, 17. Math will take place in the morning and English in the afternoon. Potentially students could take both boot camps.
The boot camp's primary goal is to address learning loss and gaps in understanding to better prepare our students for the 21-22 academic year. Students can earn one of two kinds of HS credit. First, they could earn elective math or English credit (.25). The class would focus on identifying their individual areas of growth and strengthen their skills. We will be using innovative technology and alternate hands-on methods to help students grow in math or English. Secondly, students who fail a high school Math or English course (with at least a 55%) would be allowed to show proficiency on the concepts they did not meet during their course to improve their overall grade and thereby receive credit for the class.
