Summer learning opportunities abound at NISD

June 3, 2013

Summer School is a time to catch up in your studies, learn something new, or try to get ahead.

NISD offers a wide variety of courses, from classes to allow students to take more advanced and varied courses during the regular school year; classes needed for remediation; enrichment courses and campus that allow students to explore and have fun while learning something new.

Elementary and Middle School students
Some students may be eligible for a tuition-free summer school program.  At the elementary level, students in K-4 will be eligible if they are retained, and at the middle school level, students are eligible if they fail two or three core academic courses. Additionally, fifth and eighth grade students who failed the reading or math section of the STAAR exam will be offered summer accelerated instruction prior to the summer retesting dates.

High School students
Tuition-based Summer High School will be held at Marshall High School for students needing to accelerate the accumulation of credits or to retrieve a lost credit. Accelerated Instruction for students who fail an End of Course test will be available tuition free at each comprehensive high school.

Summer Enrichment Programs
Summer enrichment programs are offered at various sites across the district. Most secondary schools offer a "transition camp" for incoming 6th and 9th graders. Contact your middle or high school for more information. Summer enrichment programs are sponsored and funded by such departments as: State Compensatory Education, Special Education, Fine Arts, Bilingual/ESL and Adult and Community Education
