Summer School 2020

In continued adherence to federal, State, and City health guidelines, we are adapting our summer school model for summer 2020. This year, we will offer summer school via remote instruction, allowing us to provide more students than ever before with the academic supports they need and a bridge from this school year to the next.

In addition to receiving academic instruction, students participating in these summer school programs will also have opportunities to go on self-paced virtual field trips and engage in daily social-emotional learning activities.

Summer School 2020 will offer remote instruction to the following students:

  • Students in grades 3–8 who are:
    • not promoted in June and are required to attend summer school.
    • promoted in June but are recommended by their teacher for additional academic support in ELA and/or math over the summer.
  • Students in grades 9–12 who receive a grade of Course in Progress, or who need to retake a course they have failed in a prior term.
  • Students with 12-month Individualized Education Program (IEP) Services.

Families can view their student’s promotion decision and summer school information by logging into your New York City Schools Account (NYCSA), and students can view their summer school information by signing into TeachHub.

Enrolling in Summer School

New York City public school students receive first priority for Summer School enrollment. All other applicants are admitted on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to seat availability and student eligibility. Students eligible for Summer School 2020 are those in grades 3-12 whose school requires them to attend summer learning to be promoted to the next grade level or to graduate from high school.

Summer School registration is open starting June 17–June 25, and on the first day of Summer School (July 6). Students and their parent or guardian should register by emailing the summer school remote learning site they plan to attend. Emancipated students do not need a guardian to register.
