Summer Learning

NISD Summer Learning

Summer – A time to refresh, renew, reunite!

Learning never ends, regardless of age, and in Northside ISD our learning options are equally varied. This past year was certainly unique, so we are expanding our summer school offerings to reach more students than ever through our NISD Summer Academies.

Whether you want to catch up in your studies, strengthen your skills, learn something new, or try to get ahead, Summer 2021 is your time to refresh, renew, and reunite!

A wide variety of elementary and secondary in-person (and a few virtual) opportunities will be offered during the summer months.

The protocols that have been in place all year will be continued, with student and staff safety in mind.

Elementary Summer Offerings

Northside ISD is proud to offer an in-person summer program for all eligible PreK through 5th grade students. The summer offering provides PK-5 students with continued summer learning to help remediate, engage, and enrich students in meaningful learning experiences. 

 

Program Offerings

Summer offerings at the elementary school level will focus on project-based learning, including Fine Arts classes, and counselor-led guidance lessons to help address social-emotional learning. View a sample of a student schedule.

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. In addition, students will begin a digital portfolio that will be a compilation of their work, learning progress, and communication between teacher and student throughout the semester.

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
Rising 9th graders who did not have the opportunity to meet the Speech requirement due to late enrollment.

Dates/Times
June 8- June 18 (Monday-Friday)
