YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - The Yuma Union High School District (YUHSD) will have in-person summer school classes from June 7 to June 24.
Classes will start from 7:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. and will be similar to a Monday through Friday school week.
Registration will run through May 23 and students need to talk to their guidance counselors about signing up.
While summer school will be in-person, there will be a virtual component for all classes to use, and that is called Edgenuity.
Edgenuity is the online learning platform that gives students an opportunity to make up missing credits, but this platform came before the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We've done this in prior years. Edgenuity is a new system for us to deliver the curriculum, so it took a couple of years for our teachers to be able to develop the content and courses in the system," said Lisa Anderson, Associate Superintendent for YUHSD.
During what was a tough time for both students and teachers, YUHSD did a lot of work to ensure students graduate on time.
"That's the ongoing effort. We're always looking for ways to meet our student's needs and it's very individualized. Our counselors work specifically with the students and their pathway toward graduation," Assistant Principal Kathy Hoover spoke.
In addition to Yuma High, other schools also have summer schools including Cibola, Gila Ridge, Kofa, San Luis and Vista.
The cost to enroll in summer school is priceless.
