The state of Tennessee has requested that all schools offer summer learning camps to help offset any loss of learning due to COVID 19. Alcoa Intermediate School is working on plans for what our summer school program will look like. Below is the criteria from the state about days and times.
- 5 days/week for 5 hours per day
- 4 days per week for the last hour of summer camp session (1:30-2:30) we will also be offering STREAM (Science/Technology/Reading/Engineering/Art/Math) camp
- 1 hour of ELA
- 1 hour of Math
- 1 hours of intervention
- 1 hour of exercise
- Breakfast and/or a snack as well as lunch will be provided
- Buses will run both in the morning and in the afternoon
- A beginning and ending assessment must be completed for students attending all summer programs
Our school must prioritize students that fall into priority categories for attending summer camp. Ex:
- A student entering grades 1-5 who is eligible for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
- A student entering grades 3-4 who scored below proficient in math or ELA on the state-adopted benchmark assessment (for AIS, i-Ready)
Alcoa Intermediate School’s summer program will be staffed by classroom teachers from Alcoa Intermediate School. We are planning for two 2-week sessions of summer learning camp (total of 2 sessions=4 weeks), and each session will have a theme, AIS Community Olympics, that will be part of the curriculum. Your student can sign up for one 2-week session, or both 2-week sessions. Please keep in mind that we are required to prioritize students from the list above, so it could be that some students are not able to attend due to the number of students enrolling. Enrollment in the program will begin March 5 and will be open for 30 days (March 5- April 3). On April 12, enrollment for all students will reopen as long as there is remaining space available.
