County students can get summer boost with math, reading help

Published 9:00 am Thursday, March 24, 2022

Lincoln County K-8 students who need a little help or boost with reading and math can get that help this summer.

The summer recovery program is not required — and also gives no credit recovery or promotion — but will serve as an opportunity for students to gain and maintain reading and math skills, according to Assistant Superintendent Richelle Ratcliff.

Taught by high quality staff, the classes will address Mississippi College and Career Readiness Standards. The program aims to provide additional instruction and supports to address potential learning loss and help students solidify foundations for mastering grade-level standards.

Students with current IEPs will be provided inclusion services and accommodations.

The classes will be June 6-30, Monday-Thursday, meeting approximately four hours each day. There will be no Friday classes, and all instruction will take place at Loyd Star Attendance Center.

The program is offered free of charge, but anyone interested must complete and submit a six-question survey application no later than April 1.

Official enrollment is based upon district eligibility criteria. Transportation and lunch will be provided to all enrolled students.
