Winter isn't over, but planning for summer school is under way in Rolla.
"It will be similar to past years," Assistant Superintendent Craig Hounsom told the Rolla School Board Thursday night. That is assuming the state Legislature does not cut summer school funding.
Here are the facts:
• Monday, June 3, will be the first day; Friday, June 28, will be the last day.
• That adds up to 20 instructional days.
• Elementary and middle school programs will consist of one daily four-hour block.
• High school classes will be two three-hour blocks daily, giving a total of 120 hours.
• Wyman Elementary will host the elementary program; if enrollment is high enough to require, elementary pupils could also be taught at the Middle School.
• Middle School will be the site for students leaving grades 5-7.
• Rolla Junior High School will likely be the site for the High School classes, owing to the construction planned at Rolla High School.
• Students leaving grades 8-11 will attend the classes offered at the High School, or RJHS.
• Credit recovery programs will be offered to high school students.
• Also offered will be classes that will allow them to be more flexible in their regular schedules.
• A 20:1 student-teacher ratio will be required to offer a class.
• No field trips will be offered.
• Lunch will be offered.
• Bus transportation will be offered within the city limits, using limited pick-up locations.
• Summer school administrators will be Darlene Bramel, Monica Davis and Corey Ray.
