The district is planning for more than 40,000 students to participate in online summer instruction via Microsoft Teams with a teacher. Students will attend virtual summer school Monday through Thursday, and attendance will be two hours for students in grades PK-2, three hours for students in grades 3-5, and four hours for students in grades 6-11. Attendance by each grade level will include time students spend in live lessons with their summers school teacher, in small-group live lessons with teachers, and on assigned digital resources.
Paper-based summer instructional packets will be mailed out or made available to summer school students with identified technology and/or internet challenges. Students will be asked to submit completion of work to their campus during the last week of summer school.

High school students can take up to 3 credit recovery courses, up to 3 original credit courses (pre-approved by the campus principal) or can take courses in strategic reading and math instruction, biology and world history acceleration courses
