• AACPS Summer Programs

    Registration is currently closed for summer 2020.  During the week of July 6-10th you will be contacted about starting Summer School or the NG Recovery Program. 

     

    The NG Recovery Program is not a traditional class like Summer School.  For the NG Recovery Program, students will have 2-3 check ins with mentors that will be set by the parent and mentor. From there, it is mostly fluid and flexible. Teacher tutors will be available on a schedule so students may need to make time to meet with a tutor if needed. The teachers will be contacting parents/students starting on Tuesday July 7th through July 10th.

     

    REMINDERS ABOUT SUMMER INSTRUCTION

    • Summer school 2020 instruction is virtual on your computers but it is synchronous live teaching and learning. This means that there are no recorded lessons posted.  Students must be physically present in their summer school class for the entire scheduled class time.

    • Students must be logged in to Google Classroom and in Google Meet with their video on for attendance purposes. This is essential everyday to complete the requirements of the courses.  In this way, we are ensuring that our students have the best and most complete educational experience possible this summer. 

    • Please return the google form received when students were registered for summer school courses.

SECONDARY SUMMER ‘NG ASSIGNMENT RECOVERY’ PROGRAM

  • This virtual secondary summer four-week program offers students in sixth through 11th grades who received a “No Grade - NG” status for the fourth quarter, but did not fail the third quarter, an opportunity to improve their second semester grade.  This is a special program offered due to the unforeseen challenges and stressors that occurred for many of our students due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Counselors and teachers will be speaking with students and families regarding this program as a recommended student summer option for increased learning and grade improvement. Students interested in this program must register; they will receive a diagnostic to identify elements from Quarter 4 that still need to be learned and then receive drop-in, teacher-led tutoring session opportunities to complete and submit assignments by August 4, 2020.
