Anyone's kids attending this year?? Have your kids attended??
My 7 year old has to go and my feelings about it are pretty mixed. He will pass regardless, but they had all year to help him and refused to do anything till he was 8.
but if she needed it I'd be all over it!
I know ds2 and dd won't have to go. I don't think ds1 will have to- unless he totally bombs his finals, he should pass everything. Barely in a couple of class, but pass.
Ds1 did go to summer school between 3rd and 4th grades when he didn't pass all of the I-STEP test (state testing).
No, but we have talked about some of the fun summer courses they offer. But then when we discuss the price it's cheaper for us to teach them.
No. I sent her to Summer School last year and refuse to do it again.
Our District offers summer school but no transportation. They also charge 3 dollars for residents which is no big deal.
But for summer school and if you're not a resident. YIKES! It's expensive.
I sent her last year as I mentioned and I don't like the fact that other districts attend with ours. It's crazy busy there. There has to be 5 or 6 other districts that use ours for Summer School.
No, my son does not need it.
I did sign him up between 1st and 2nd grade. My son goes to a language immersion school, and neither my husband nor I speak that language. So I thought the extra exposure over the summer would help him. I guess the material was too easy for him, and so he spent most of the summer school being like a teacher's helper. The teacher said he was bored, and so I didn't sign him up again.
Transportation is provided to summer school. They also provide a free breakfast and lunch at all elementary schools (whether it is for neighborhood students or kids in summer school). When my son went, they also went on a field trip, but I think they stopped doing that to save money.
