Elementary School Summer Program June 15 - July 10

MAIN OFFICE:  25 Churchill Avenue, Palo Alto CA  94306

Coordinator: Nikole Manou (nmanou@pausd.org)Phone:  (650) 329-3773Hours: 8:00am - 3:00pm Monday – Friday
Summer School Clerk:  Amy Love (alove@pausd.org)Phone:  (650) 329-3773Hours: 8:00am - 4:30pm Monday – Friday

Vision

We believe in developing a summer program that equitably supports and challenges students who experience an opportunity gap through an engaging and integrated curriculum that blends academic instruction with enrichment.

Eligibility Criteria

PAUSD eligible students will be identified and invited to participate. An invitation will be sent out by mid-March.   

Curriculum

The summer school program will not follow the traditional academic intervention model. Our goal is to provide students with a highly engaging and hands-on curriculum to maintain their skills over the summer and develop a positive attitude towards school. We believe that this can be done through a curriculum that integrates Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) using a project-based learning approach for the purpose of developing high engagement levels in students.  

The elementary summer school office will close the first day that summer school starts (June 15th). All elementary calls should be directed to the sites.


Special Education Extended School Year (ESY) Program

The ESY Summer School will follow its own preset criteria for participation and registration is by invitation only. If a child has participated in this program in the past, please contact Jennifer Baker (jbaker@pausd.org), Cynthia Loleng-Perez (clolengperez@pausd.org), or your child's case manager to inquire about this year's ESY program.

Summer School Attendance Policy
Each school day (5.5hrs) represents one week of instruction. Therefore, missing three days equates to three weeks and fulfilling the necessary hours for credit. Summer school classes are offered in a very short time frame and regular attendance is crucial.
STUDENTS WILL BE DROPPED FROM ANY COURSE AFTER MORE THAN  THREE ABSENCES DURING A SUMMER SESSION.
ONE TARDY AFTER TWO ABSENCES WILL RESULT IN THE STUDENT BEING DROPPED.
Three tardies will be counted as one absence. A tardy is defined in California Education Code as less than 30 minutes.
No exceptions will be made.
