Summer School 2020 from NYC DOE

In continued adherence to federal, State, and City health guidelines, we are adapting our summer school model for summer 2020. This year, we will offer summer school via remote instruction, allowing us to provide more students than ever before with the academic supports they need and a bridge from this school year to the next.

In addition to receiving academic instruction, students participating in these summer school programs will also have opportunities to go on self-paced virtual field trips and engage in daily social-emotional learning activities.

Summer School 2020 will offer remote instruction to the following students:

  • Students in grades 3–8 who are:
    • not promoted in June and are required to attend summer school.
    • promoted in June but are recommended by their teacher for additional academic support in ELA and/or math over the summer.
  • Students in grades 9–12 who receive a grade of Course in Progress, or who need to retake a course they have failed in a prior term.
  • Students with 12-month Individualized Education Program (IEP) Services.

Dates for Summer School 2020

  • Starting June 17: Schools notify families if a student will be promoted to the next grade
