Expanded Summer Virtual Learning Program


We continue to stay dedicated to the CDC COVID 19 recommendations for the safety of our students and staff. As we continue to put safety first, the decision has been made to move our summer programs to a virtual platform. Therefore, we are excited to offer an Expanded Virtual Learning Summer Program to all of our students in grades K-8.


We also understand our families may be struggling with keeping up with the virtual platform while maintaining their work from home. In an effort to continue our students’ learning with the least impact on our families, we will only be utilizing the iReady Program.


Students who choose to participate in the summer program will take a Diagnostic Assessment in the iReady program for Reading and Math the end of May. The Diagnostic Assessment allows the program to give each student an individualized learning path to meet their specific academic needs. Students will then work on their learning paths for 15 minutes a day in Reading and 15 minutes a day in Math. A teacher will be assigned to each student to monitor their progress and assist if needed. ESE teachers will also be assigned to our ESE students to provide interventions if needed.


The Expanded Virtual Learning Summer Program will begin June 15th and end July 16th. The program will be four days a week, Monday through Thursday.


Below is a survey for all families to complete to opt in or out of the expanded learning program. Students who opt in will keep their chromebooks until July 17th, the end of the summer program. Students who opt out will be asked to return their chromebooks in June. Please complete the survey below for each of your children in grades Kindergarten to 8th grade. If you have any additional questions on the Expanded Virtual Learning Summer Program you may contact your child’s school.

Programa de aprendizaje virtual de verano ampliado

Seguimos dedicados a las recomendaciones de CDC COVID 19 para la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes y personal. A medida que seguimos priorizando la seguridad, se tomó la decisión de trasladar nuestros programas de verano a una plataforma virtual. Por lo tanto, nos complace ofrecer un Programa de verano de aprendizaje virtual ampliado a todos nuestros estudiantes en los grados K-8.

También entendemos que nuestras familias pueden estar luchando para mantenerse al día con la plataforma virtual mientras mantienen su trabajo desde casa. En un esfuerzo por continuar el aprendizaje de nuestros estudiantes con el menor impacto en nuestras familias, solo utilizaremos el Programa iReady.

Los estudiantes que elijan participar en el programa de verano tomarán una evaluación de diagnóstico en el programa iReady para lectura y matemáticas a fines de mayo. La evaluación de diagnóstico permite que el programa brinde a cada estudiante una ruta de aprendizaje individualizada para satisfacer sus necesidades académicas específicas. Luego, los estudiantes trabajarán en sus caminos de aprendizaje durante 15 minutos al día en lectura y 15 minutos al día en matemáticas. Se asignará un maestro a cada estudiante para monitorear su progreso y ayudar si es necesario. Los maestros de ESE también serán asignados a nuestros estudiantes de ESE para proporcionar intervenciones si es necesario.

El Programa de verano de aprendizaje virtual ampliado comenzará el 15 de junio y finalizará el 16 de julio. El programa será de cuatro días a la semana, de lunes a jueves.

A continuación se muestra una encuesta para que todas las familias la completen para optar por participar o no en el programa de aprendizaje ampliado. Los estudiantes que opten por participar mantendrán sus Chromebooks hasta el 17 de julio, el final del programa de verano. A los estudiantes que opten por no participar se les pedirá que devuelvan sus Chromebooks en junio. Complete la encuesta a continuación para cada uno de sus hijos en los grados de jardín de infantes a octavo grado. Si tiene preguntas adicionales sobre el Programa de verano de aprendizaje virtual ampliado, puede comunicarse con la escuela de su hijo.
