Registration is now open for Harrison County Schools' 2021 Summer School programs. Summer School takes a two-tiered approach to providing academic and enrichment needs by way of offering two different areas of focus.
The mornings will be dedicated to providing academic needs for students. Depending on grade level, this will include skill development, learning gap reduction, credit/course recovery and enrichment based on students' own individual learning needs.
Specifically, in preK-8, skills, learning gaps and course recovery will be the focus. In grades 9-12, the morning sessions will center on students credit recovery at the point of failure.
Afternoons will focus more on social needs through enrichment and peer activities.
Outdoor sports, physical activity, computer coding career internships will all be used with all student pre-k-12th grade. Community partnerships have been established to further the connection between students and the community they serve.
Team building activities and community partnerships will provide students with opportunities to earn certifications (food handling, safe sitter) as well as help them see what career pathways are available.
Finally, as a national engineering pathway with PLTW and Toyota Motor manufacturing in Georgetown, we are able to further students' exposure to various engineering opportunities and career options both locally and globally.
More detailed information is available on the Summer School application.
