    District 214’s in-person summer school program meets daily Monday through Thursday from 7:30 am-12:30 pm. 

    In-person courses are directly instructed and assessed by certified content-specific teachers who utilize a combination of small and whole group instruction that is delivered through a variety of instructional methods. Students will be expected to use their district-issued iPads for work both in and outside of the classroom, and they will have a 15-minute break each day.

    Students enrolled in in-person summer school will complete a semester of work in THREE (3) weeks (12 days). 

    Please note: although most courses are semesterised, some are year-long experiences and run for six weeks, which is indicated in their course description.

    District 214 reserves the right to cancel an in-person class due to low enrollment, and an option to transfer enrollment to an online section will be offered if available.

    Online Summer School

    6 week session dates: June 13-July 21

    District 214’s online summer school program is asynchronous and self-paced in format, and students enrolled will be monitored by certified teachers as they complete assigned coursework in Edgenuity, the District’s online learning platform. Students can access Edgenuity using their district-issued iPad.

    There will be no live component to the class where students have to be online together with their teacher at a specific time or day. Rather, they will have the opportunity to access individual conferencing and support during their teachers’ daily designated office hours.

    Students enrolled in online summer school will have the full six weeks – until July 21 – to complete their course and all accompanying assignments. A student may take up to TWO (2) online courses; however, they may not begin a new course until after they’ve completed their current course, and they may not begin a new course after week 4 of summer school.
