Summer programs starting in APS schools

High school programs began June 6; elementaries June 8, June 15

Supt. Raquel Reedy talks to Eugene Field students.

Albuquerque Public Schools Supt. Raquel Reedy joined students at Eugene Field Elementary on Thursday to mark the start of the K-3 plus and Summer Academy programs for elementary school students.

Students at APS elementary schools on the alternative calendar—Cochiti, Duranes, Eugene Field, Mary Ann Binford, Mark Twain, and Susie Marmon—stared classes on Wednesday. An additional 33 school sites will begin classes on June 15.

The K-3 plus program provides an additional 25 days of learning for students entering kindergarten, first, second or third grades in the fall. The Summer Academy is for students who completed grades 3-5 during the 2015-16 school year. Both programs are free.

“These programs are designed to help students either get a head-start on their classes next fall or to keep them from losing the knowledge they gained during the regular school year, what we call the summer slide,” Reedy said.
