Summer Learning Offers Students Opportunity to Get Caught Up, Get Ahead, or Change Paths
Registration is now open for Grand Erie students in Kindergarten to Grade 12 interested in taking advantage of learning opportunities available this summer, with a focus no longer just on secondary students recovering credits.
“Summer school offers a different kind of learning, and can be a great way to reinforce the lessons of the previous school year or provide students with a chance to advance in their studies for the year ahead,” said JoAnna Roberto, Director of Education for Grand Erie. “With a range of programs available this summer, there’s something for everybody.”
Summer school is designed to meet various student needs, including transition supports for intermediate students and providing targeted supports for vulnerable and underserved student groups. Summer school allows secondary students to earn credits towards diploma requirements, elementary students to enhance literacy and numeracy skills, and students with special education needs to build familiarity and routines ahead of the start of the new school year. This year’s offerings also include mental health supports and resources for students and families.
For younger learners, Camp SAIL (Summer Adventures in Learning) returns in an online format, with educators ready to bring a fun, camplike experience meant to build skills in math, reading and writing. Students in Grades 7 and 8 can sign up for Reach-Ahead courses to earn high-school credits before starting secondary school. A wide course selection is available to secondary school students to upgrade a mark or complete an additional course.
Summer programs will be delivered online, and include a combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning. For more information, please visit Grand Erie’s Summer Learning page by clicking the button below.
Grand Erie District School Board represents more than 25,000 students in 58 elementary and 14 secondary schools within the City of Brantford and the counties of Brant, Haldimand, and Norfolk.
