Virtual Summer School 2020
Our goal is to be able to provide a safe environment in order to meet the needs of our students during summer programming. Outlooks and information about COVID 19 change almost daily. In consultation with senior leadership, MSCR and the Department of Public Instruction, we have decided to offer a virtual learning program for students Grades 3-12. In support of the summer school mission, our program is focused on high quality instruction that is targeted to accelerate growth in key skills in math and literacy, credit recovery and initial credit courses in a virtual format for six weeks.
For more information, please see the 2020 Virtual Learning Summer School Plan.
These programs are for students who:
- met the summer school criteria and received an invitation
- completed the appropriate enrollment form by the deadline
For more grade level-specific information see below.
5-7th grade Summer School
The Summer School program provides students in 5th, 6th, and 7th grade the opportunity to receive additional academic support and build upon their math and literacy skills during the summer. Students who attend this program have received an invitation to attend; the invitation is based upon students' academic performance during the regular school year.

8th Grade Summer School Promotion
The 8th Grade Promotion component of summer school is based on state law and MMSD policy. Students who are at risk of non-promotion to 9th grade attend summer school to increase academic skills in order to be promoted to the next instructional level. The courses give students the opportunity for additional study on the subject content areas that require the additional work in order to be promoted to the next grade level.
If your child is at risk for non-promotion, you should have received a letter from your school regarding this process. Please contact your school counselor or principal if you have any questions.
Students in the 8th grade non-promotion program attend their prospective high school for the summer. These students are enrolled to take a literacy course, a math course, and a course called Freshman 101. The Freshman 101 course works on high school readiness skills such as time management and team building, as well as exposes students to the high school environment.
