North Judson-San Pierre School Board members approved the 2019 summer school programs when they met Tuesday night.
Superintendent Dr. Annette Zupin provided the board with a synopsis of some of the classes they’re looking to offer this summer.
She told members there are particular programs that are reimbursable through the Indiana Department of Education. One of those programs is the Supervised Agriculture Experience.
She explained, “Miss Emily Duvall has offered this for the past several years and does a great job. It’s project based and that will begin June 11th.”
The other reimbursable program will be a 3rd grade reading class offered to students who do not pass the IREAD test.
Dr. Zupin noted that the IDOE requires at least 15 students to sign up for these programs. If they don’t reach that amount, the classes will not be offered.
Superintendent Zupin stated that there are two programs they’re looking to offer that would be grant funded.
She told members, “Other summer school classes that I would like to offer that are funded by grants are the High Ability and the Kindergarten Countdown.”
Zupin continued, “That’s funded through the Starke County Community Foundation. They fund all three county schools’ kindergarten summer school.”
Both of those programs would run from June 3rd through the 7th.
Dr. Zupin was also seeking approval for the Starke County Youth Club to offer their annual three week summer school opportunity for NJ-SP students.
Board members approved the proposed programs with a unanimous vote.
