LAUSD to Offer Limited Summer Programs

Select high schools to offer classes. For youngsters, comprehensive summer enrichment programs will be made available.

LOS ANGELES (April 11, 2013) — Some programs will be cancelled this summer due to budget restrictions facing the Los Angeles Unified School District. However, LAUSD will offer limited classes and support services, including summer school courses for students who have failed classes during the academic year. The District also will provide families with a variety of age appropriate links to online Internet resources designed to keep youngsters academically and actively engaged during the summer months.

Summer School

Summer school will be provided at select high schools from July 8, 2013 to August 2, 2013 for students currently enrolled in LAUSD schools. Classes will run from 8:30 a.m. to 11:50 a.m. and will include a 20-minute break. To be eligible students must be in the 10th, 11th, or 12th grade and failed a course required for graduation. Additionally, ninth-grade students, who have failed an entire year of Algebra 1, may enroll. Current 12th-graders (Class of 2013), who do not graduate, may be referred to adult school for specific courses. Eligible students must register with their respective school counselors. A list of summer school/credit recovery sites will be available on the LAUSD’s Beyond the Bell Branch website http://btb.lausd.net.

Comprehensive Summer Enrichment Programs

LAUSD’s Beyond the Bell Branch will operate Summer Enrichment Programs at more than 160 elementary and middle schools during the 2013 summer vacation period. The programs will provide daily activities Monday through Friday, beginning June 10, 2013.

Each program will include three components — academic, enrichment and fitness. Participation will be limited to students who attend those schools. The County of Los Angeles supports select school sites with their summer reading program. More information will be posted at: http://btb.lausd.net.
