High School students may earn a maximum of one credit. Planned offerings include physical education and health, personal finance, enrichment courses, remediation courses for credit recovery, a full-day Edudrone class to earn one credit, and a selection of online learning courses.
Planned Summer School sites are: Ray-Pec High School for grades 9-12; South Middle School for grades 6-8; and three elementary sites (based on enrollment):
Morning and afternoon bus transportation will be available. High School students who take only one course will need transportation at mid-day.
