Albuquerque Public Schools offers Summer Programs to meet the academic needs of students at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. Students are provided with academic intervention, remediation, or academic advancement.
The programs offered during the summer are high quality intervention programs. Data on the success of these programs are analyzed at the completion of the program.
Many factors affect a student’s success in the program including attendance, degree to which the student already meets grade level standards, and fidelity to program implementation. Every effort is made to provide a quality experience for students from intensive professional development, low student-teacher ratios and on-site Instructional Support.
All courses are aligned with grade level standards. Course frameworks and/or curriculum maps are available for every course taught in the summer. It is critical to establish the expectation that the frameworks and/or curriculum maps will be adhered to.
The emphasis of the summer intervention program in high school is to keep students on target for their original graduation date.
Summer middle school intervention classes are designed to help current APS 6th and 7th grade students who are struggling with mandated tests in math and reading literacy.
At the elementary level, the emphasis is placed on extended learning opportunities that include 25 full-day programs.
Talk to your student's teacher for more information.
