LCPS Summer Programs Overview

  • 2024 Elementary Summer School 

    The Elementary Summer School Program is designed to engage students who need to continue to develop skills in language arts and math.  Please note, our program is designed for students for whom specific weaknesses in reading and/or math can be identified by multiple progress measures. Summer school requires that students meet certain criteria and requires a teacher recommendation. For more information, please contact your child’s teacher.  

    EL students will participate in regular summer school with resource support available from an EL teacher. For more information, please contact your student's EL teacher. 

    2023 Middle Summer School

    Middle School students who have received a final grade of a “D” or an “F” may receive targeted instruction in Math and Reading/Language Arts through programs based at their home school. These programs are targeted to specific learning needs and are open to General Education students, English Language Learners, and Special Education students participating in inclusion classes. Program dates and times will vary and are set by the home school. Students who are eligible to attend must attend at their home school. For more information, please contact your student’s school counselor.  

         

    2023 High School Summer Credit Recovery Program

    The High School Summer Credit Recovery Program will offer course credit and verified credit for students through a summer extension of the school year at their current high school.   Any student with a failing grade in select courses will be provided a grade of Incomplete ("I").  This will provide an opportunity for the teacher to continue to remediate deficiencies and expand academic skills in core content areas that reflect the LCPS curriculum and Virginia Standards of Learning.  Credit recovery is targeted to specific learning standards and is open to General Education students, English Language Learners, and Special Education students participating in inclusion classes.  Remediation dates and times will vary and are set by the home school.  Eligible students' families will be informed by a school counselor or an administrator if their student has been identified to engage in credit recovery.  For more information, please contact your student's school counselor near the end of the 2022-2023 school year.

    Extended School Year (ESY) Services

    The determination of ESY services by the IEP team is based on the consideration of several factors and the IEP team must determine whether the benefits the child gained during the regular school year will be significantly jeopardized if the student does not receive ESY. Based on this analysis, if ESY is determined to be required, these services, at no cost to the parent, will vary in type, intensity, inclusion of related services, and length of time, depending on the individual needs of the student. These services are distinct from enrichment programs, summer school programs, and compensatory services and are not simply an extension of time.  All ESY services and transportation are provided free of charge as a part of the student's access to a free appropriate public education (FAPE), in accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education (IDEA).
