This year’s Elementary Summer Learning Institute includes a new opportunity for 2018-19 kindergarten students. In the past, only students currently enrolled in kindergarten through sixth grade could enroll in the summer program, meaning that incoming kindergarten students did not participate. Beginning in 2018, incoming kindergarten students also have the opportunity to attend a four-hour summer program.
Another change this year involves grade level designations for participating summer students. Previously, students remained at their previous grade level during summer school so that a 2017-18 first-grader would have remained a first grader during summer 2018. Beginning this summer, students will “roll up” a grade during the summer session so this year’s first-grade student would become a summer school second-grader.
