What vacation? Some students preparing for summer courses




Hundreds of local students will spend part of their summer strengthening their reading skills or taking elective classes they don’t have time for during the school year.

The summer courses offered by local schools are essential because they give students opportunities to catch up and review lessons they don’t quite understand and to work ahead, school officials said.

Districts are required to provide refresher courses for the third-graders who failed the spring IREAD-3 exam, which students have to pass before moving on to fourth-grade reading lessons. Those students will take the test again this summer.
