Holly Springs, Marshall County and Ole Miss will co-op summer school program for students again this summer
The Holly Springs School District, the Marshall County School District and the University of Mississippi’s Teacher Corps are pleased to announce that plans have been finalized for an extended school year program for this upcoming summer. The three groups will work cooperatively to offer academic services from Mississippi Teacher Corps instructors to students in grades 7-12 who have either failed certain courses during the regular school year or who need enrichment activities to better prepare them for the 2007-2008 school year.
There will be two summer sessions this year, one running from June 12 through June 29 and the other running from July 5 through July 20. Also, this year’s program will open up its registration and enrollment to Holy Family School, Marshall Academy and to the Benton and Tate County Schools.
During the first summer term the following courses will be offered: Seventh Grade (English, math and science), Eighth Grade (English, math, science and social studies), high school (English I, II & III, pre-algebra, algebra I, biology and the ACT Enrichment Course). During the second summer term the program will offer the following: Seventh Grade (English and math), Eighth Grade (English and math), middle school science, high school (English I & II and algebra I). These courses are available to students who failed one of the above listed courses during the regular school year and ended the year with an average of 60 or better. Only one course may be taken per summer session. The cost per course is $150.
The Mississippi Teacher Corps will ensure that at least three teachers are available in each classroom, so that students can be guaranteed individual attention throughout the day and can more readily meet objectives they did not master during the regular school year. Parents may begin registering students and accessing information concerning the program by contacting their individual school sites and requesting an application.
More detailed instructions will be given from school site administrators when parents inquire about the application process.
The official registration dates are as follows: June 6 from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m., June 7 from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m., June 8-11 from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Registration will take place at the Holly Springs School District’s Superintendent’s Office. No incomplete registration forms (packets) will be accepted.
The Holly Springs and Marshall County School districts encourage parents to take advantage of this unique summer school experience for students. The program set-up will provide students an opportunity to improve academically in a way that few other programs can offer, due to the cooperation and participation of the Mississippi Teacher Corps.
