Summer Programming 2020

**All K-8 summer programming is at capacity. No new enrollments are being accepted. Thank you for considering ISD 191 Summer programming for your children.**

District 191 will be offering summer programming for students this year. However, some programming may look different than it has in the past so that we can comply with health guidelines and help keep our students and community safe.

Summer learning is project-based and offers fun, hands-on activities for students. The summer distance learning program runs July 6-30, Monday through Thursday.

For students currently in 8th grade

District 191 will offer the Summer STEM Academy for current 8th grade students. Students who complete course requirements will earn 1.5 high school credits. This program supports current 8th grade students as they transition to high school, providing relevant academic learning in language arts and engineering, as well as skills development to help students succeed as they enter 9th grade. 

On average, students who participated in the Summer STEM Academy performed better in school during their 9th grade year than those who did not participate in the program.

Students will gain skills and knowledge in: 

  • 9th Grade Success 
  • Service Learning 
  • Multimedia Communications

Students will take three project-based, teacher-led live Zoom classes. The Summer STEM Academy, which will provide STEM activity kits for the classes, will include a schedule for attendance and independent work. 

Students in the Summer STEM Academy will also participate in an in-person orientation at Burnsville High School at the end of the program, which runs Monday through Thursday, July 6-30. Transportation will be provided with social distancing guidelines in place. Learn more about what will be covered in classes.
