With more than 750 students registered for the inaugural session and a projected cost to parents of $96.03 per week for each student, Valley View’s proposed K-5 Summer Learning Experience program will go before the board for a vote Monday night.
The summer school program, which will offer both remediation for struggling students and enrichment for high achievers, is slated to be offered twice this summer. The first session is scheduled for June 18 to July 13, with a second session from July 16 to Aug. 10. Parents will have the choice of enrolling their children in either one or both of the four-week sessions.
The instruction day will be from 8:15 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
According to district documents, breakfast and lunch will be provided, but parents will be required to pay transportation fees of $25 per week for one-way busing or $50 per week for both ways.
Based on the number of pre-registered students, the Summer Learning Experience is slated to be offered at the following campuses, with a total of 38 staffers needed to run the program:
Extended School Year
Another Valley View summer school program, this time aimed at students with special needs, is also on Monday’s agenda.
Funded by the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA), the Extended School Year is open to special education students who demonstrate a regression of learned skills and “inability to recoup the loss in a reasonable period of time as determined by their individual education program (IEP),” according to district documents.
With a total projected cost of $188,865, the ESY program would be offered at the , and .
Classes would meet from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. daily from June 18 to July 16, with a day off on July 4.
The program will require 30 to 35 certified teaching staffers and paraprofessionals, according to district documents, along with a secretary, nurse and other support staff.
New lockers for RHS
Students could get new lockers at , if the board signs off on a bid to replace both student lockers in the RHS corridors and the physical education lockers.
All of the school’s lockers are original to the building, according to the report from Assistant Superintendent for Administrative Services Gary Grizaffi, and their narrow width makes it to tough to store book bags and coats.
Grizaffi is recommended approval of a bid from Lyons Workspace Products. The district would pay a total of $369,009 for the purchase and installation of the corridor lockers and boys and girls gym lockers.
Last year, the district purchased 631 lockers, to be installed in the senior hallway, from the same company.
