    English Learner/Migrant Summer Programs

    K-8 Program

    Our EL/Migrant program targets EL Newcomers in ELPAC levels 1 or 2 and Migrant students. During summer, K-8th grade students will be engaged in Project-Based- Learning through the use of Google Classroom as the universal tool for teacher-student communication. Each grade will engage in a project in which the students and teachers generate the ELD vocabulary/skills needed to successfully complete and present their projects to a community audience. Learning of new technology tools is an essential component of the EL/Migrant summer school program. This program will be hosted at Peterson Middle School with transportation provided to students who need it.

    9-12 Program

    EL students in ELD levels I and II will be offered two five-unit English Language Development courses which include the development of a project and the blending of technology in the project design. Migrant students and ELD Students Levels III and above can take online courses through Cyber High with the support of two teachers as well as tutors and/or volunteers. Transportation is provided for all EL and Migrant students who need this support for summer programs. This program will be housed at Wilcox High School with transportation provided to students who need it.

    Qualifying students will be invited to participate in these programs with counselors’ referrals and will be registered on a first-come-first-served basis given that space is limited.  A waiting list will be kept until the second day of summer school if students missed the first day.
