TRADITIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAMS
At Grace Hudson, the summer school program for elementary school students will focus on reading and mathematics. Katie Sommer, UUSD Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services, said, “Students in grades TK through 5 who need an extra boost over the summer in their reading and math skills, or are migrant students, are invited to attend the program.”
At Pomolita Middle School, summer school will use a Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics (STEM) focus to support students in grades 6 and 7 who need additional academic support. Students will work on math skills through engineering and computer coding projects, along with more traditional mathematics instruction. English Language Arts instruction will be supported through reading, writing, and technology projects in English and Social Studies classes.
At Ukiah High, incoming eighth grade students who need academic support can attend the Summer Bridge program. Sommer said, “This program supports students in successfully transitioning to Ukiah High School with the knowledge and skills to become thriving high school students.”
Students in grades 9-12 attending summer school will do so at Pomolita Middle School. They can make up academic credit on campus in English and mathematics classes, as well as online through a program called “Cyber High.” The Special Education summer program will also be housed at Pomolita Middle School. All programs will run from 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon beginning June 14 through July 12.
