Summer Learning

NISD Summer Learning

Summer – A time to refresh, renew, refocus, recharge!

Learning never ends, regardless of age, and in Northside ISD our learning options are equally varied. We have expanded our summer school offerings to reach more students than ever through our NISD Summer Academies. So whether you want to catch up in your studies, strengthen your skills, learn something new, or try to get ahead, Summer is your time to refresh, renew, and reunite!

A wide variety of elementary and secondary in-person (and a few virtual) opportunities are offered during the summer months, and will be posted on this page in the spring. See you then!

Contact your student's campus for enrollment information.

Middle School Communication Applications

 

The primary focus of Communication Applications (Comm Apps) is communication in professional and social contexts. In this class, students will develop a variety of skills that can be applied in many different situations. Some examples may include analyzing and evaluating the effectiveness of one’s own and others’ communication, as well as solving problems and managing conflicts

 

Students will earn a 0.5 high school credit for Comm Apps, which satisfies the Speech credit that is an NISD requirement for graduation. Major benefits of early participation and success in high school courses are that students gain a sense of efficacy and an improved understanding of high school requirements such as Endorsements, GPA, and rank points. In addition, as transition efforts into high school are improved, students are better prepared with skills necessary for both high school and post-secondary success. Finally, entering high school with this credit provides space in a student’s schedule in high school so that the students have an increased agility within the endorsements as well as opportunities to enroll in high-interest courses.

 

Eligibility

8th grade students who enrolled in an NISD middle school after the district cutoff date to receive HS credit for Communication Applications.
