Minooka Community Consolidated School District 201 could be looking to beef-up its summer school offerings by launching a new bridge program.
At Monday’s school board meeting, officials presented a preliminary look at what the district has to offer.
New this time around is the potential launch of Minooka Bridge, a program designed to help give kindergarten through eighth-grade students a leg-up in learning at the next grade level.
The first week of the program is expected to be held in person, while the remainder is conducted online.
As in years past, the district intends to offer students the opportunity to take part in Camp Minooka, enrichment and course recovery.
Camp Minooka promises to engage participating students in age-appropriate ways in the areas of reading and math with a twist of arts.
Enrichment and course recovery are typically designed for students in grades 5 through 8.
The district welcomes all students to take part in summer school programming.
There is no cost to interested students and their families. Programming is made possible thanks in part to Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funding.
