CCSD Offers Students Chance To Move Ahead

 The Clark County School District (CCSD) will begin offering summer school instruction today

Taking classes during the summer provides middle and high school students with the opportunity to make up missed credits through “credit retrieval” or move forward by taking advantage of the courses offered, allowing students to expand upon their academic goals.

“Summer school is an important part of the academic calendar,” said Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky.

“Taking advantage of the education opportunities offered during the summer can have a great impact on student success. Summer opportunities also allow our seniors who are missing credits to make up classes and graduate in August.  The District’s summer initiatives provide the perfect chance for students to catch up or move ahead,” said Skorkowsky

The two sessions are as followed

Session One: June 17 – July 5

Times: 7:30 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.

Session Two: July 8 – July 25

Times: 7:30 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.

To celebrate the accomplishments of students from the class of 2013 who were not eligible to graduate during their school’s graduation ceremony but remained dedicated and finished their graduation requirements over the summer, CCSD will hold the
Second Annual Summer Graduation to offer these students the chance to participate in a commencement ceremony.

The ceremony will be held at the Las Vegas Academy of International Studies, Performing and Visual Arts on Wednesday, August 14.
