LCPS Summer Programs Overview
2021 Elementary School 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.

All other EL students (Level 2.0 and above) will participate in regular summer school with resource support available from an EL teacher. For more information, please contact your student's EL teacher.
