2020 Summer School Enrichment Course Proposals

Calling for Summer School ENRICHMENT Courses

What are you doing next summer? How about teaching in our School District’s 2020 Summer School Program? Does your school have a Theme, Goal, or Focus that could be met through summer school projects or classes? What is it you’ve always wanted to share with kids, but just never have the time during the regular school year?

Could these be Great Ideas for Enrichment Courses?  Of Course They Could!!

Those ideas are just what we are looking for. We need creative, one or two week exploratory/enrichment courses to offer to our District students so we keep them thinking and learning throughout the summer!


  1. Complete the following Course Proposal Form BEFORE:  Friday, January 10th, 2020
  2. The Course Proposal Form will automatically be emailed to the appropriate Curriculum Supervisor (if it is a new course).
  3. Once the course is approved…
  4. We will print it in our 2020 Summer School Brochure and will work to make it happen!!
  5. We encourage you to promote your own course too!

*Note: Consider your course APPROVED unless you hear otherwise from the summer school office.

Technology Needs

Due to the increased requests from summer school enrichment courses, it is necessary that any staff utilizing technology over the summer request it in advance. Availability for technology not requested cannot be guaranteed. Please know that technology is moved around in the district over the summer, so what might be in your school during the normal year, may not be there over the summer unless requested.

For any new software or app requests, please fill out the Technology Request Form prior to the end of the school year.
