Summer School opportunities abound
Summer School is a time to catch up in your studies, strengthen your skills, learn something new, or try to get ahead.
NISD offers a wide variety of courses, including regular high school summer programs for remediation and acceleration, programs for middle and elementary school, and state mandated programs. There are also a number of enrichment courses and camps that allow students to explore and have fun while learning something new.
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. Accelerated Instruction for students who fail an End-of Course test will be available tuition free at each comprehensive high school.
Tuition- based High School Summer School will be held at Stevens High School for students needing to accelerate the accumulation of credits or to retrieve a lost credit.
Also included are summer enrichment programs 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.
