  • Highlights and Overview

    Summer Learning will be for all students. Students who do not wish to participate will need to opt-out

    Most summer opportunities are free to all students, with the exception of new courses at T.C. Williams High School.

    Any student whose circumstances have been impacted by COVID-19 or is eligible for Free or Reduced Price Meals can access these classes for free by contacting their school counselor.  

    The goal of summer learning is to engage, enrich, and prepare students for the anticipation of September 2020 and is based on the following principles:

    • Engaging content paced to afford students the opportunity to self-monitor and receive feedback and coaching. Feedback and coaching are essential for student success in the virtual context.
    • Preparation for the next grade level for all rising sixth grade students and secondary students through boost/prep course.
    • Pre-K through fourth grade students will continue using learning kits and Chromebooks with an additional feature of virtual check-in or phone support for our pre-K through second grade students.
    • Feedback and grading are essential to Summer 2020. Students will receive feedback and coaching or grades for credit-bearing courses that will go on transcripts.
