As the 2022/2023 school year winds down, preparations for summer school are well underway.
This year, ‘Fifth Quarter’ is scheduled to begin on June 5 at three schools in the New Richmond Exempted Village School District: Locust Corner Elementary, Monroe Elementary and New Richmond High School.
At the primary level, students who have not met the minimum promotion requirements as outlined by the 3rd Grade Reading Guarantee under Ohio law will be required to attend summer school.
Those students will attend classes from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. for a four-week period beginning in early June. A full calendar is below.
Breakfast will be served upon the student’s arrival to school. Lunch will be provided at 11:30 a.m.
Students will attend summer school at their normal elementary building. Transportation will be provided.
High school students attending summer school for credit recovery will operate on the same calendar as the elementary school students.
Classes begin following breakfast at 8:15 a.m. and last until 12 p.m. A lunch will be provided at 11:30 a.m.
Credit recovery is designed to help students with credit deficiencies in English and Math, both of which require four units to graduate. Credit recovery in Math will be administered by a math teacher in a classroom environment.
All core subjects are available for credit recovery in a virtual environment utilizing the APEX learning program under the direction of a licensed instructor. Students need three science and social studies credits to graduate.
Transportation will be provided to and from the high school.
