The Bartow County School System will host its first-ever Summer Intervention Program June 1-June 24 for all students who do not show proficiency on one or more of their identified essential standards by the last day of school. If it appears your child may need this additional assistance, you will be notified by letter on or before Friday, May 7. This in-person Summer Intervention Program is required, not optional for all identified students.
Through our Professional Learning Communities process, each grade level and subject area collaboration team work through a rigorous process to identify essential standards or critical knowledge your child must acquire while in class. Students work on these essential standards all year and are provided ample intervention time if they do not show proficiency. This new program is only for students who still need extra assistance on their essential standards at the end of the academic year.
“We are excited to be able to provide this program for our students this summer,” said Superintendent Dr. Phillip Page. “Due to the pandemic and subsequent quarantine protocols, we know this school year brought many new challenges. We look forward to providing any additional support your children may need to ensure they have learned the guaranteed curriculum that we have set forth for them.”
The Summer Intervention Program is specifically for elementary and middle school students who have not met proficiency on all of their essential standards in English Language Arts, Reading, and Math by the last day of school and high school students who earned between a 50 and 64 for their final grade in English, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
If required to attend the program, Monday through Thursday sessions will be held at your child’s school starting June 1. Hamilton Crossing Elementary School will host its sessions at Clear Creek Elementary School due to construction. Breakfast, lunch, and transportation will be available. Students who qualify for summer intervention will exit the program once they have met proficiency on the identified essential standards even if completed before June 24. The Exceptional Education Department will also offer support to students during the Summer Intervention Program. Additional information will be coming soon from your child’s school.
