Course Description Information

A) Learning Recovery Support for ELA and Math

This course targets students who struggled in the past year academically, emotionally, and socially.  Re-engagement is a focus using tools like IXL .  Students will focus on key standards identified as lacking through IXL and other assessments. Priority will be given to students with multiple Ds and Fs. During the class, students should experience school in a positive way, engaging in project based learning, hands-on activities, and working across content areas.  Social Emotional skills will be emphasized and teachers will provide small group or individualized support to students in areas where gaps exist.

Pay Information:

  • Summer School employees shall be paid hourly based on a formula of one-eighth (1/8) of the employee's per diem rate of pay multiplied by 1.15 for each hour of instruction
  • Formula:  Annual salary ÷ 184 work days = daily rate ÷ 8 x hours of instruction x 1.15 = daily rate for summer assignment

B) Continued Engagement Summer School

This is an opportunity for core content teachers (English, Math, and Science) to write engaging asynchronous lessons for students to work through during the summer. There is also an option to develop additional synchronous activities such as book clubs, virtual labs, or guided tours, etc, as well as biweekly virtual check-ins, to give students an opportunity to engage with their teachers and other students in their learning. Students can opt to learn asynchronously only or participate in the synchronous activities.  These synchronous activities would include (all virtual): student check-ins, lesson delivery, discussion, etc on a regular basis. Lessons should be standards based, but emphasis is on re-engagement and fun!  Teachers will write four weeks of lessons (such as choice boards) for each core content area.  All secondary students may participate in this engagement/enrichment program.
