Board may offer more summer programs

By The Mercury

USD 383 children may have more opportunities for summer education this year.

USD 383 board members are expected to consider additions to summer offerings at three elementary schools during the board’s meeting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at Robinson Education Center.

The board approved 2013 summer programs in February, but Bergman, Lee, Northview, Ogden and Theodore Roosevelt elementary schools have received 21st Century Community Learning Center supplemental grants since then.

The board Wednesday will consider requests from officials at Lee, Ogden and Theodore Roosevelt to add to their summer offerings.

Lee would add a remedial summer program for kindergarten through third grade students from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Monday through Thursday. The program will run from June 3 to July 26.

Theodore Roosevelt would add a remedial summer program for kindergarten through fourth grade students from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Monday through Thursday.

It would run from June 3 to July 26.

The morning program at both schools would be free including lunch. If students are enrolled in afternoon activities, a $75 per week fee would be charged at both schools.

Ogden would extend its summer activities by a month from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday from June 3 to July 26 (no program July 4 and 5).

STEM Summer Institute is also requesting a $75 fee, up from $50, to assist with additional transportation opportunities.
