This program encompasses a STEM component, humanities component, social-emotional learning and physical education. All students will be scheduled into all subjects.
The district has adopted a pass/fail grading practice for the Middle School Summer Program. In order for students to pass they must:
- Actively participate in instruction and learning activities
- Respond to feedback provided by the teacher
- Submit work in a timely manner
- Demonstrate evidence of learning
Attendance and behavior
Participation is critical to student success in the program and will be documented. Staff will be reaching out on a regular basis to ensure that students are completing work. During classroom times, students are expected to login to their Google Classroom and complete work the teacher assigns.
As per the district attendance policy, students who exceed three absences will not receive credit for summer courses.
Students will be held to behavioral expectations and consequences of the district Code of Conduct.
All students who attend in person summer school will receive one CDTA pass. The pass will be activated for the months of July and August. There will be a fee for lost passes.
Breakfast and lunch will be provided to all students.
If you have questions about the program, you can contact your child's guidance counselor or building administrator.
