  1. What criteria is used to identify K-8 students who will be invited to attend Summer School?
  1. Multiple measures of student achievement are used to determine if a student will benefit from summer school intervention. We evaluate report cards, benchmark exams, and standardized tests. A list of students generated from this data will be sent to the school sites in mid April. At that point, teachers have the opportunity to add students they suggest or delete students from our lists. Teachers should plan to provide data to support the recommendations. Due to space limitations, not all suggestions can be accommodated.
