Impact of a 2021 Summer School Program on Student Achievement
From the report: "The district’s 2021 summer school program was open to students in all grades, though various criteria were used to invite students to participate in the program. The purposes, content and delivery mode of the summer program varied across grades. For high school students, the program was intended to allow students to make up failed or incomplete courses or provide opportunities for acceleration by taking additional courses. Most of the high school offerings were virtual. For middle and elementary school students, the program was intended to provide additional instruction in particular subject areas based on student needs. Most elementary and middle school sessions were delivered in a face-to-face format (with the exception of middle school world language instruction)."
