Summer School – June 1st – July 13th – Information sent home this week

The NC General Assembly recently passed House Bill 82 and Governor Cooper signed it into law.  This legislation provides funding for a summer school opportunity for students who do not meet the promotion standards (passes 3 out of 4 core classes for the school year).  If your child is currently not meeting promotion standards and you would like them to have the opportunity to attend to work towards possible promotion please make sure to mark your calendar for these dates. We currently have some students in a course recovery class during exploratory.  Some of these student may have the opportunity to now pass depending on how many assignments they have successfully completed.

Letters were given to students and mailed to all students on Friday, May 14th who will need to attend summer school to be able to be promoted to the next grade level.  These parents will also receive a follow up phone call this week to confirm attendance and arrange bus transportation.  Please note summer school is IN PERSON.  There will be no option for remote attendance.  Also note we may have students place OUT or IN summer school based on their end of grade test scores and final 6th weeks report card.  You will be notified later this week if there is a change for your child.
